|title = Wikipedia Edit-a-thon: Ada Lovelace Day Edition
 
|time = 12 PM – 2 PM
 
|place ='''West End Neighborhood Library'''
 
|address =  2301 L Street Northwest, Washington, DC 20037
 
|description = '''This event is presented by 500 Women Scientists DC'''. Ada Lovelace Day is an international day to celebrate the contributions of self-identifying women to science, technology, engineering, and math. So to celebrate their achievements, 500 Women Scientists and our allies, as well as the DC Science Writer's Association, are gathering at the West End DC Public Library on Saturday, October 13th to share their work on Wikipedia's pages.
 
 
While Wikipedia is the fifth most popular website in the world, notching up more than 32 million views a day, less than 18% of its English-language biographies are about women. So in honor of Ada Lovelace—and her contributions to mathematics and computing—we'll work to add more entries to Wikipedia and give you the tools to keepf making the Internet less sexist after our Wiki-thon. All you have to do is come armed with a laptop or tablet!

Tibbs is best known for his donation to the Corcoran Gallery of Art, now an important part of the National Gallery’s holdings by African American artists. To support his research, Tibbs amassed approximately more than a thousand reference files comprising more than seventy boxes of material documenting art of the African diaspora. Tibbs opened up his reference collection, now commonly known as the Evans-Tibbs Archive, to artists, students, and scholars. The archive includes correspondence, exhibition pamphlets, gallery records, photographs, and other ephemera that illustrate the history of the Tibbs family, The Evans-Tibbs Collection, and African American art.

|description = Wikimedia’s gender trouble is well-documented. While the reasons for the gender gap are up for debate, the practical effect of this disparity, however, is not. Content is skewed by the lack of female participation. This represents an alarming absence in an increasingly important repository of shared knowledge.
 
 
Let’s change that. Join us for a communal updating of Wikipedia entries on subjects related to art and feminism. We will provide tutorials for the beginner Wikipedian, as well as reference materials, coffee and lunch. Bring your laptop, power cord and ideas for entries that need updating or creation. People of all gender identities and expressions are invited to participate.

|title =Recognizing Black Suffragists: A Wikipedia Editing Workshop
 
|time = 10 AM – 2 PM
 
|place ='''National Woman's Party at the Belmont-Paul Women's Equality National Monument'''
 
|address = 144 Constitution Ave NE, Washington, DC 20002
 
 
|description = Did you know that Wikipedia is an openly editable resource, meaning that anyone can improve the quality and accuracy of Wikipedia entries? Data has shown that less than 18% of biographies on English-language Wikipedia are about women. Help us change that by joining us on February 9 at the Belmont-Paul Women's Equality National Monument for a Wikipedia editing workshop. We will work together to improve and create Wikipedia content about black women who fought for the right to vote. Training will be provided, and no prior knowledge of suffrage history or wikipedia editing is required.
 
 
This free event is presented by the National Woman's Party with support form Wikimedia DC. Lunch will be provided.
 
 
Please bring your own laptop. Wikimedia DC has two laptops to loan, and they can reserved by emailing info@wikimediadc.org.

|time = Time: 10 AM – 3:30 PM

|address = 10301 Baltimore Ave, Beltsville, MD 20705
 
 
|description = Join us at the National Agriculture Library to help celebrate our 50th Anniversary in Beltsville and help to improve or create Wikipedia articles about the National Agricultural Library's history, as well as ARS/USDA history.
 
 
The National Agricultural Library(NAL), one of the world's largest agricultural research libraries, was established as part of the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) in 1862, by Abraham Lincoln. The library was originally located at the headquarters building of the USDA until centralization of the library, and it's vast collections outgrew the Washington D.C. space. In 1965, President Lyndon B. Johnson authorized an appropriation which enabled the Library to move and build a new 14-story building on site at the Henry A. Wallace Beltsville Agricultural Research Center (BARC) in Beltsville,MD.
 
 
The National Agricultural Library invites Wikipedians of all levels of experience to participate in this edit-a-thon. Topics will include past librarians, USDA research discoveries and developments, the evolution of technology in conjunction with libraries, and highlights of notable research and research contributions represented within the library's special collections and stacks holdings.
 
 
During the event individuals will be able to hear from and meet influential historians within the USDA, librarians, and data science experts. They will also have the opportunity to learn more about resources available through ARS and the National Agricultural Library.
 
 
This event is free and open to the public. Registration is required. Lunch will be provided.
 
 
Photo ID and laptops are required - please bring your own. Training on editing Wikipedia will be provided.
