Wikipedia seeks libraries who are willing to host a Wikipedia editor and give that editor access to their library materials in order to enhance the article citation process on Wikipedia. The cooperative's goal for this project is to make the library's e-collections available online via the WorldCat Knowledge Base, so that students and others on campus can see links in Wikipedia to full-text articles that the library makes available. This webinar was a follow on from a small discussion at ALA Midwinter, and Senior Program Officer Merrilee Proffitt and Partner Programs Director Cindy Cunningham hope to broaden the conversation, help library staff find out more and how their institutions can play a role.
