In 2020, the Smithsonian Institution launched its Open Access initiative in order to catalyze new conversations and to reach 1 billion people with a digital-first strategy. This session describes its work with the Wikimedia community with a shared goal of addressing historical knowledge gaps. The Smithsonian American Women's History Initiative is crucial in implementing wiki-based programming around the gender gap online. The session will talk about not just the contribution of open access content, but the collaboration and co-creation activities supported with the Wikimedia community.
