All Work and No Pay edit-a-thon with Smithsonian National Museum of American History
- 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, history, and science.
- During this training, attendees of all experience levels will learn the basics of how to edit Wikipedia by updating articles related to the history of women's invisible labor in the United States in connection with the All Work and No Pay: A History of Women's Invisible Labor display at the National Museum of American History.
- This is the second edit-a-thon in a series planned in conjunction with the Smithsonian American Women's Initiative, a multiyear undertaking to document, research, collect, display, and share the history of women in the United States.
- The National Museum of American History welcomes visitors of all abilities. Request for accessibility services can be made by phone at 202-633-3150 or by email at email@example.com. Two weeks prior notice is preferred. Find additional information about accessibility at the National Museum of American History here.
