About the Project

Expanding on the edit-a-thon conducted at the library in 2013, Nicolette worked with her colleagues in the graduate school to host an edit-a-thon on global topics. She identified relevant primary and secondary materials in special collections and worked with staff to digitize images to supplement written articles. Nicolette organized and supervised the edit-a-thon and held informal help sessions for participants.
