Raise your hand if you use Wikipedia! Everyone from librarians and professors to students and patrons use this free enclyclopedia—we might as well embrace the inevitable and contribute to its betterment, or at least familiarize ourselves with how others in the information ecosystem are participating.
Learn how publishers, libraries, and Wikipedia can collaborate for end-user research success by attending the, “We’re All in This Together: A Library-Publisher-Wikipedia Symbiosis” Open Web Session at the ER&L Conference 2019 on March 4, 2019 at 2:45 p.m. ET.
Whether you’re a cataloging librarian from an academic institution, state library or school, there are numerous ways librarians can contribute to Wikipedia and guide their students or patrons in its use.
