Wikipedia, Libraries and Archives: Washington, D.C. July 11th

Just a quick note to alert you to a meeting between Wikipedians and librarians/archivists at Wikimania in Washington, D.C. We’ll be taking a look “behind the secret door” of Wikipedia (lead by our own Wikipedian in Residence, Max Klein) as well as hearing from both sides of library/archive Wikipedia partnerships: I’m pleased that here we will be joined by Wikipedian Q Miceli, former Technical Services student worker at Mudd Manuscript Library, Princeton University as well as information professional Karen Weiss, Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution. Q and Karen will share their experiences and perspectives on partnership. We will also have a discussion about potential for more and deeper collaboration between Wikipedia and libraries/archives.

For more information, check out the agenda on line and sign up if you are interested in attending. All are welcome so please join us!

[I will be back to blogging about Libraries Rebound soon, so stay tuned!]
