UK Libraries to Host Art+Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-thon
The Art+Feminisim Wikipedia edit-a-thon is an international communal updating of Wikipedia content on subjects related to art and feminism. Designed in response to a 2011 survey, which revealed fewer than 10 percent of Wikipedia contributors identify as female, Art+Feminism Wikipedia edit-a-thons work to encourage female editorship and help to reverse the dearth of content about women and art in the world’s most popular online research tool. Since 2014, an estimated 4,600 articles have been created and improved as a result of these international events.  To continue that progress, UK Libraries along with university libraries across the US will host an Art+Feminism Wikipedia edit-a-thon this spring. Please join us at the Lucille Caudill Little Fine Arts Library, Monday, March 20. Participation is easy and all are welcome. We hope to see you there.
