In recognition of Women's History Month, the librarians of Tennessee State University and Vanderbilt University are hosting a Wikipedia Edit-a-thon, to improve coverage of Tennessee State University's Notable Female Alumni and other Tennessee women with exceptional accomplishments. The Edit-a-thon is being conducted to increase the number of female Wikipedia editors as well as to heighten representation of women featured articles.
