View this webinar recording to learn how libraries can become more visible on the world's largest free encyclopedia, and find out what steps your library can take to gain visibility on this important reference site. Hear examples of how libraries are engaging with Wikipedia, including hosting an editor, undertaking usage research and using OCLC’s knowledge base API and a Wikipedia script.
This webinar was part of the OCLC series, Collective Insight. Collective Insight is a series of programs created to frame and facilitate conversations across the academic community around important topics that are relevant to libraries today. Through this series we offer thought provoking meetings and discussions around specific topics of interest. By applying some massively collaborative thinking to issues and opportunities that libraries face today, we can deepen our collective knowledge, broaden our expertise, and discover specific actions that can be applied immediately—both at your library, and across the OCLC cooperative.
