Do you want to publish and promote your community’s history? Do you want your history organization to be an authoritative source of historical information? Then learn how to edit and add content to Wikipedia.
ALL ARE WELCOME – no experience necessary.
Minnesota Historical Society’s Local History Services is offering eight free public workshops around the state this summer and fall where you can come and learn more about how Wikipedia works and then give you an opportunity to add your community’s history on Wikipedia articles.
The goal is to create, add to, and update Greater Minnesota’s local histories on Wikipedia, particularly where information gaps currently exist. This will expand and make accessible to the public information about Minnesota's history. Due to limited space registration is required.
