Hello! I'd love to support this effort!
For those of you who don't know me, I'm Wikimedia Foundation's new Chief
Talent and Culture Officer.
I can touch base with Asaf to help plan something.

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

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!****
