About the event

There are a number of women the Honour Roll of Glasgow School of Art who are unrepresented on Wikipedia. This event will seek to redress that balance, using resources from the Glasgow School of Art Archives. This full day event will begin with a training session run by Sara Thomas, Wikimedian in Residence at Museums Galleries Scotland. Sara will train all attendees in how to edit Wikipedia, and will be on hand throughout the day to offer advice and support. After lunch, we will create new, and improve existing articles relating to women on the Honour Roll of Glasgow School of Art.

Attendees should remember that when creating a new article, you should be able to write at least 250 words, and reference at least 2-3 external sources.
