Just sending a reminder about this event, which is this week! Please do
register if you plan to come, so that we know about food. Also, note that
we adjusted the time upwards a bit as we need to leave at 6:45 sharp (the
library is closing then). Also, note that this is NOT in the same location
that we have had most of our past edit-a-thons - it's in the engineering
library, in building 10.
Thank you! Let me know if you have any questions.

We at MIT Libraries are pleased to host a Wikipedia Day edit-a-thon again
for 2020 centered on newly-in-the-public domain books that MIT has
digitized. We will have it on January 15, 2020 (Wikipedia's 19th birthday!)
from 4-7pm in Barker Engineering Library on MIT's campus.

We will have birthday cake!
Also, you may be familiar with MIT's tradition of hosting many workshops
and events during the Independent Activities Period (IAP) in January. My
colleague who is also involved in our edit-a-thon is teaching another
workshop that may be of interest to Wikipedians who work with copyright and
free licenses called "Is it in the public domain?" That's on Jan 7. Find

Hope to see you all at the edit-a-thon!
