The Music Library Association's (MLA) Emerging Technologies and Services Committee, and Digital Humanities Interest Group are pleased to present a Wikipedia Edit-a-thon at St. Louis Public Library on February 24, 2019. This is a post conference event following the 2019 MLA Annual Meeting, which will be held in St. Louis, MO. However, the event is free and open to the public.
