It's an unusual title, but Susan Tolich can now call herself New Zealand's first official Wikimedian-in-Residence. She's doing a Master's of Museum and Heritage Studies at Victoria University but has spent the past few weeks hunkered down at Auckland Museum.

She's not only raising the Museum's international profile, but helping to address the fact that women are under-represented in feature articles and as contributors to Wikipedia, the world's biggest encylopedia.    Lynn Freeman starts by asking Susan to define a Wikimedian.
