Thank you Merrilee for being so generous to offer OCLC resources and space for an edit-a-thon :) Very very cool!

We have started a page on English Wikipedia about the event, please update as needed:

Hi all,


I’m Merrilee, and I work at a non profit that supports libraries – we are based in Central Ohio, but also have an office in San Mateo. I’d be happy to host an edit-a-thon and to reach out to our members that have archival and library collections featuring women (particularly those that have online content in the public domain) to provide fodder. I am a Wikipedia newbie, but we are hoping to develop a Wikipedian in Residence position this summer. I would love to work with a local partner to do something. So Asaf, I’d be interested in being a partner in crime!
