NCompass Live: Tech Talk with Michael Sauers: Working with Wikipedia - Recorded Online Session 

Description

Next to Google, Wikipedia is the major source of information used by people today. But libraries also own much content that isn't available on Wikipedia, so how should we make sure users don't stop there? In this session, Aaron Tay, Senior Librarian & eServices Facilitator at National University of Singapore, will cover ideas on how to link resources from Wikipedia to library resources using various tools including John Mark Ockerbloom's Forward to Libraries service. In the opposite direction, libraries can also move in and use Wikipedia entries to enhance findability of their collections.

In this monthly feature of NCompass Live, the NLC’s Technology Innovation Librarian, Michael Sauers, will discuss the tech news of the month and share new and exciting tech for your library.
