University of Oxford IT Services: Women in Science transcribe-a-thon 12/10/2015

It Services at Oxford are running an event next week (12 October) to create a Wikisource transcription of a text on women geniuses. They’re celebrating 200 years since the birth of Ada Lovelace and are inviting anyone to come and help boost the canonical presence of women in the sciences through good old fashioned dissemination of resources.

Here’s the text of their invitation:

“Join us for the first ever transcribe-a-thon. We’ll use Wikisource to create an electronic edition of a historic book about women geniuses.

Part of a series of events hosted by IT Services and the Bodleian Libraries to celebrate the bicentenary of Ada Lovelace, the first computer programmer.”
