This session introduces the community-edited Wikipedia project, and the ecosystem of open and collaborative resources that surround the largest crowdsourced encyclopaedia on the Web. We focus on issues and challenges, including representation, accuracy, bias, sources and intellectual property, and projects and communities that aim to address inequalities and other problems with the recording especially of historical and classical information in Wikipedia, including the case study of the Women's Classical Committee’s Wikipedia project, creating articles for underrepresented woman classicists. Guidance on authoring and editing for Wikipedia will also be given.
