On October 19th, 2012 staff members of Mudd Manuscript Library once again opened the doors and archives for the purpose of composing and editing Princeton University-related articles on Wikipedia.
For this third event of its kind, we decided to hold it during our normal business hours during volunteer weekend with the focus of enhancing Princeton athletics information.
We had a total of 11 attendees with 3 new user names created.
A number of articles were created and are still being edited.
- Princeton Cannon Song
- Class of 1952 Stadium
- User:Undead q/Karl Langlotz
- List of Princeton University Olympians
- Hollie Donan
- User:Lmd08/sandbox (Princeton Tiger Mascot)
- Women’s Golf
- First football game
Two photos from the editing were also added to Wikimedia Commons
We count this edit-a-thon as yet another success and plans are being made for future events that will include undergraduates in learning more about Wikipedia and editing.
Princeton Alumni Weekly writer Brett Tomlinson was a participant in our event and has also written here about his experience.
