Introduction

 

Wednesday, February 17
10:00am to 3:00pm (drop-in event)
Lobby of the JFK Library

Welcome to the Eastern Washington University Library's "All Red Event"!  As a community we will collaborate to write an article on Wikipedia to tell the story of William "Red" Reese, long-time Eastern coach and athletic director, and his contributions to our university!

The goals of the this event are:

  • Create a thorough, authoritative, and high quality Wikipedia page for William "Red" Reese
  • Learn about the history of Eastern Washington University and the growth of its athletics program
  • Learn about Wikipedia: how to edit it, how articles are created, what makes a good article
