The Smithsonian Asian Pacific American Center in Washington D.C. is sponsoring the APA (Asian Pacific American) Wikipedia edit-a-thon, an editing event for improving and increasing the presence of cultural, historic, and artistic information on Wikipedia pertaining to Asian Pacific American (APA) experiences. WiR will be participating virtually on Friday-Sunday, September 4-6, 2015. Our virtual node targets more focused work on the coverage of APA women and their works.

Anyone can take part whatever your previous experience. We hope both inexperienced and seasoned editors will join us in creating biographies of some of the many past and present notable APA women who are still red-linked on the English Wikipedia. A virtual edit-a-thon will allow enthusiasts from around the globe to participate in the work.

The main goals of the edit-a-thon are:

  • to encourage inexperienced editors and show them how they can contribute to Wikipedia by creating biographies of some of the world's most prominent women
  • to draw the attention of more experienced editors to the need for concerted action on a specific area
  • to support Wikipedia in combating the systemic bias against the coverage of women and women's works
