Wikipedia Edit-a-Thon for Women’s History Month

In honor of Women’s History Month, the National Museum of Women in the Arts, the Archives of American Art, and the Smithsonian American Art Museum are teaming up to organize a workshop and edit-a-thon focused on improving Wikipedia entries related to notable women artists and art world figures.

There are three goals for this project. The first is to facilitate knowledge creation about the history and achievements of inspirational women artists and other women in the arts. The second is to encourage inexperienced editors (especially women) to contribute to Wikipedia. The third goal is to increase awareness about the research resources freely available through these libraries, archives, and museums.
