Apr-May'15: Wikipedia: Library Initiatives and Expert Editing (Library Juice Academy)

April 6 to May 15th, 2015

From the Wikipedia Loves Libraries campaign to the hiring of an OCLC Wikipedian-in-Residence, libraries are embracing the free encyclopedia that anyone can edit. These programs support open culture, promote discoverability of unique collections, and strengthen relationships with patrons in the virtual and physical worlds. This six-week introductory course will give students the tools they need to participate in Wikipedia, or lead an initiative of their own.
