Learn more about how the communities behind Wikipedia, Wikidata and other
Wikimedia projects partner with cultural heritage organizations:
We’ve proposed this ALA Conversation starter to talk about how Wiki* can
help with library descriptive practices. Please help out by voting on the
proposal and if you can leverage your networks in spreading the word, that
would be great, too. *Voting is only open until May 6th.* You will need to
create an account but you need not be an ALA member.
Leveraging Wikipedia to help enrich and improve library practices
If you are attending ALA Annual in New Orleans I hope to see you there!
