What to expect

We will provide tutorials for Wikipedia newcomers and an overview of the resource. Bring your laptop, power cord, and ideas for entries that need updating or creation. Stop by for a little bit or stay for the whole afternoon. No Wikipedia editing experience necessary!

If you are unfamiliar with Wikipedia, you might try this training module which will help explain a lot of things, including how to add your signature (by the way, signatures are created by saving four tildes [~] in a row).
