My name is Mary Mark Ockerbloom, and I’m a Wikipedian in Residence at the Chemical Heritage Foundation. My position was created by Jeff Guin under the GLAM initiative, which connects people with knowledge of Wikipedia, and people with content knowledge from Galleries, Libraries, Archives and Museums. What can you do in two months, as a Wikipedian in Residence? At CHF, I’m giving talks on how Wikipedia works, and how to edit, relating that information to CHF’s resources in the history of science and technology. Our culminating event will be an Edit-a-Thon, on June 20.
One of our goals is to write wonderful woman scientists like Kitty Hach-Darrow into Wikipedia’s history. If you’re familiar with Wikipedia and would like to visit CHF as an editor & coach for the Edit-a-Thon, we would love you to join us!You can also participate remotely under the hashtag #GlamCHF You can register and see a list of topics and resources on our project page.
