Item Summary

Title:Using Wikipedia to increase the visibility of digital collections: an editathon
Authors:Campany, Mary
Kahili-Heede, Melissa
Keywords:Library science
Open access
Date Issued:17 Nov 2018
Abstract:What do Libraries, Librarians, and Wikipedia have in common? We seek to provide people with information. This session is all about how to teach using Wikipedia, how librarians can contribute to the creation and dissemination of information through Wikipedia, and ultimately work to improve it. Teaching with Wikipedia allows librarians to reinforce valuable information literacy concepts in a format students understand and librarians, with a keen understanding of information concepts, are perfectly poised to contribute to Wikipedia. During the first part of this session, attendees will learn about teaching with Wikipedia and will get an overview of Wikipedia's policies. In the second half, attendees will learn to edit Wikipedia by adding citations to existing articles. Join us on our quest to become Wikipedians!
