The Center for the History of Medicine is collaborating with other special collections at Harvard and beyond to serve as a host site for Open Access to Mass History, a Wikipedia Edit-a-thon taking place during Open Access Week, October 21-26. On Tuesday, October 22, from 9-2, volunteers will be working with Center staff to build history of medicine Wiki content around Center collections. The event will take place at the Countway Library and includes a Wikipedia editing tutorial by a seasoned Wikipedian and a tour of the Center.

We are currently looking for volunteers to write and edit Wikipedia entries on topics related to Massachusetts and the history of medicine.  To sign up, send your name, email address, and affiliation to: emily_gustainis@hms.harvard.edu.
