This country’s fascinating and invaluable patrimony of recorded sound and culture is at risk. Libraries, archives, museums, and historical societies have approximately 46 million recordings in their collections and more than six million are “in need” or “in urgent need” of preservation..
As part of the Rewriting Wikipedia Project, we will be hosting the Global Women Write-In (#GWWI) virtually on April 26, 2013 from 1-3pm EST. This globally oriented project encourages editors to add more entries and information on women around the world to Wikipedia, since entries on individuals from these groups are often missing or neglected.
While Wikipedia has increasingly taken on the role of most commonly referenced encyclopedia, the number and length of entries on ethnic/minority and marginalized people around the world are lacking. This is arguably the result of the internalized biases and interests of most Wikipedia editors. According to the Wikimedia Wikipedia’s Editor’s Survey of 2011, “If there is a typical Wikipedia editor, he has a college degree, is 30-years-old, is computer savvy but not necessarily a programmer, doesn’t actually spend much time playing games, and lives in US or Europe.” As a result, we also aim to encourage new people to become Wikipedia editors to diversify the profile of Wikipedia editors, and we provide support for these editors and develop best practices for rewriting Wikipedia.
