On April 2nd of 2020, CCA Libraries & Art Practical hosted California College of the Arts' 6th annual Art+Feminism Wikipedia edit-a-thon aimed at addressing the gender imbalance and skewed coverage of Wikipedia. Library staff and visitors spent the day writing articles on female artists and topics relating to women, feminism, and art. Due to the 2019-20 coronavirus pandemic, CCA campuses were closed, but the edit-a-thon was successfully moved online using Zoom videoconferencing software.
The results of the edit-a-thon were: 3 articles created, 17 articles edited, 138 total edits, 27 editors, 8.14k words added, 83 references added, and 6.08k article views.
