Please bring a laptop with you!

  • Bring your laptop, power cord and ideas for entries that need updating or creation. For the editing-averse, we urge you to stop by to show your support.


Join Hesburgh Libraries, The Center for Digital Scholarship and The History Museum in celebrating Women’s History Month. Together, we’ll research, write, and publish to Wikipedia the significant stories of the women of South Bend and Notre Dame.

As a participant, you will develop advanced library research skills and master new digital authoring tools and resources as you help to reduce the gender gap in Wikipedia.

Please add your Wikipedia username to the appropriate section below (signatures are created by saving four tildes [~] in a row). If you haven't edited Wikipedia before, we will help you register for a new Wikipedia editing account on the day-of.

List of articles to edit

Below is a list of articles that would benefit from edits and expansion during the edit-a-thon. However, feel free to come up with your own ideas! In addition to the suggestions below, editors may consider cleaning up articles on more well-known women of South Bend. Helpful updates could be as simple as: Making sure reference links are still appropriate and functional; Adding new inline citations/references; Adding a photo; Adding an infobox; Adding data to more fields in an existing infobox; Creating headings; Adding categories; etc.

We have also included suggestions (below) for South Bend women who currently lack articles or whose articles need expansion or editing. Please utilize the resources of the History Museum and the University of Notre Dame and don't hesitate to ask for help!
