UK Libraries Second Art+Feminism Edit-a-thon Focuses on Kentucky Women
UK Libraries second Art+Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-thon, organized by Abbye Allan, Karyn Hinkle, Kathryn Lybarger, Ida Sell, and the School of Information's Melissa Adler, focused primarily on women in the arts from Kentucky: 33 existing articles were improved thanks to the efforts of all involved, and an impressive six brand new articles were created, thanks to the efforts of skilled historians Megan Mummey and Sarah Wade and especially to expert Wikipedian Kathryn Lybarger. Kentuckians, including the painter Marcia Shallcross Hite, the composer Zudie Harris Reinecke, and the printer Carolyn Reading Hammer, can now be researched in Wikipedia. Over the course of the day, over 4,500 words were added during UK's instance of Art+Feminism's month-long, international event.
