Art Students League Archive Edit-a-thon with Smithsonian American Art and Portrait Gallery Library

Art Students League of New York
Wikipedia is an openly editable resource, meaning that you can improve the quality and accuracy of Wikipedia entries. As one of the web’s most visited reference sites, Wikipedia serves as a starting point for many individuals looking to learn about art, artists and art history.
During this training, attendees will learn the basics of how to edit Wikipedia by updating articles related to the Art Students League of New York. Librarians from the Smithsonian American Art Museum and Portrait Gallery will provide access to a large archive of reference material that was recently donated by the Art Students League of New York.
