Join us for the Women of Jazz Edit-A-Thon!


Do you love jazz, blues, funk and anything in between? Are you frustrated by the gender bias in Wikipedia? Or maybe you love Linked Data?

Join us for the Women of Jazz Wikipedia Edit-A-Thon! Members of Linked Jazz will give you a crash course in Wikipedia and help you fill in the gaps of Wikipedia’s coverage of musicians who are women. No Wikipedia editing experience necessary. Just bring your passion and we’ll help you do the rest!

Date: Saturday, May 30th
Time: 12-5pm
Location: New York Public Library for the Performing Arts, Dorothy and Lewis B. Cullman Center, Third Floor Screening Room (40 Lincoln Center Plaza, New York, NY, 10023)
Please bring: A laptop, your NYPL library card, and a digital camera. (These will help you do research at the library!)

Informal gathering to follow in Damrosch Park, just outside the library.

For further information, see Wikipedia, NYPL’s website, and Meetup. You can also find us on Twitter @LinkedJazz (we’ll be using the hashtag #WomenOfJazz).

We hope to see you on May 30th!
