University Libraries is collaborating with Wendy Katz, professor, School of Art, Art History & Design, and her students in the special topics course Art History 398: Recovering the Lost on creating or editing the entries of Notable Nebraskans in Wikipedia. This drop-in event is free and open to the public and is happening 2-5 p.m. April 22, 2024 in Love Library South, room 221 (Peterson Room).

Some of the notable Nebraskans being written about include Mabel Lee, director of physical education for women at UNL; Edna Bullock, first Executive Secretary of Nebraska Public Library Commission (1901-1906), librarian, writer, and UNL alumna; and Hilda Raz, former UNL professor, former editor of Prairie Schooner, and writer.

All are welcome at this event — from experienced editors to newcomers — so there is no need to know how to edit. Libraries faculty will be on hand to instruct on the steps to being an editor. There will be opportunities to edit in both minor and major ways. For more information on the event and to RSVP, check out the event page.
