OCLC and WebJunction: “This training curriculum will help you confidently begin to use, edit, and teach Wikipedia at your library. These materials were created during OCLC’s Wikipedia + Libraries: Better Together project to strengthen ties between US public libraries and English-language Wikipedia. The project ran from December 2016 through May 2018 and was funded by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, the Wikimedia Foundation, and OCLC. The materials are the product of research and expertise marshaled to design, deliver, and evaluate OCLC/WebJunction’s nine-week Wikipedia online course for US public library staff. Participants learned to:
- build a deeper understanding of Wikipedia
- gain proficiency in evaluation and editing
- develop a plan to implement Wikipedia programming in their libraries
- amplify the role of libraries as information literacy leaders in their communities.
