Sorry for the repeated email... but I just wanted to let you all know
that there is still space in this workshop if you or anyone you know
is interested in attending; feel free to send to colleagues. Please
sign up soon though so we can order enough catering.
Also, if anyone has resources they think their librarian colleagues
should know about -- wikiprojects, white papers, handouts, etc. --
feel free to post them on our workshop page or on the talk page:
Thanks so much!

Libraries in the age of Wikipedia
Wednesday, April 10, 2013, 10-2 pm
IUPUI University Library, Indianapolis
Do you want to learn how your library can harness Wikipedia to improve
discoverability of library resources, including materials in special
collections and archives? Have you always wanted to contribute to Wikipedia
but aren't sure how to get started? Have you tried to edit but haven't had a
good experience? Do you need tips on how to teach information literacy with
Wikipedia, or had faculty ask about teaching with it? Do you simply want to
learn more about using and contributing to the largest and most-used
reference work in human history?
On April 10th, just before the ACRL 2013 kickoff, you are invited to attend:
“Libraries in the age of Wikipedia: Understanding & Contributing to
Wikipedia,” a hands-on workshop that will provide an introduction and
general overview of how librarians can begin editing and contributing to
Wikipedia. The workshop is open to all and includes refreshments. ACRL
registration is not required to attend the workshop.
Three librarians who are expert Wikipedians will give an overview of the
project, guide participants through a hands-on editing session, talk about
the relationship between libraries and Wikipedia, and answer questions.
Registration is free but we do ask that you register ahead of time so we can
get an accurate count. Space is limited!
Date: Wednesday, April 10, 2013
Location: IUPUI University Library, Indianapolis, IN, Room 2120
