Wikipedia and Academia?!


Panel discussion and Wikipedia edit-a-thon at ETH Zurich. The relationship between academia and Wikipedia is ambivalent and not without its sceptics.

On the International Archives Day (9 June 2017), a panel will discuss which contributions archives can make in this controversial area with representatives of research, Wikimedia/Wikipedia and archives.

Afterwards, there will be an evening Wikipedia edit-a-thon, which will continue on 10 June. It offers an ideal opportunity to write or enhance articles with the help of experienced Wikipedians and thus contribute your own specialist knowledge to Wikipedia.

ETH Library's archives

and the Archives of Contemporary History invite you to attend this varied programme in cooperation with Wikimedia CH.

Interested? We look forward to seeing you!

Further information is available on Swiss Archives Day 2017.
