Ada Lovelace Day is an international day celebrating the achievements of women in science, technology, engineering, and maths. At the University of Michigan Library, we’re celebrating Ada Lovelace Day by contributing to and improving Wikipedia articles related to intersectional feminism and technology, including women in STEM, underrepresented groups in technology, and other related topics.

We'll provide tutorials for the beginner Wikipedian, reference materials, and refreshments. It's free! Everyone welcome! No previous experience required! Please RSVP.

Bring your laptop, power cord, and ideas for entries that need updating or creation. For the editing-averse, we urge you to stop by and learn more about Wikipedia and discover hidden figures from the history of technology and computing.

Please create a Wikipedia account before the event. Once you've created an account, visit our event page dashboard and register by selecting “Join program” and entering the passcode: ada.

Want to get a head start with training? We’re offering three workshops in preparation for the event, including one online delivered via BlueJeans for remote participants.
