As trusted knowledge mediators, libraries have a responsibility to help improve the presence of Canadian culture on Wikimedia platforms. In this edit-a-thon, participants will ensure their own libraries are represented on Wikidata, Wikimedia Commons, and Wikipedia, and be better prepared to lead edit-a-thons in their own communities.

Inspire libraries and archives to organize Wikipedia and Wikidata edit-a-thons with their communities; create as well as provide information.
