Wikipedia, Libraries, & The Future of Information


Wikipedia needs librarians! Academic librarians can help build and improve Wikipedia. Come hear from three Wikipedia editors all connected to libraries. Learn more about how the Wikipedia Library is helping editors get access to sources from vendors like Project Muse, JSTOR, Gale Products, EBSCO Products, and more. They work to increase librarian participation; improving the quality of entries and sources used. Learn more about how archivists and universities are digitizing special collections and adding them to Wikipedia. This increases discoverability of collections and student interaction with those sources. Learn more about ways to use Wikipedia to develop events and programming that increase information literacy and critical thinking skills.
