Wikipedia + Libraries: Better Together
Libraries and Wikipedia share a common purpose: to provide free public access to knowledge and resources. Wikipedia + Libraries: Better Together was an 18-month OCLC project to strengthen the ties between US public libraries and English Wikipedia. The project ended in May 2018 and the connections, learning materials, stories, and outcomes are still unfolding. Library staff are leveraging Wikipedia to better serve their communities.
Learn from the pathways that library staff have taken with Wikipedia and how you can get involved, too.
