NCompass Live: #1lib1ref: a Citation as a Gateway into Librarianship on Wikipedia - Recorded Online Session 

Description

Wikipedia is a first stop for researchers: let's make it better! The Wikipedia Library Team at the Wikimedia Foundation are embarking on a second year of the #1lib1ref campaign, which will run January 15 through February 3, 2017 and coincides with Wikipedia's birthday. During #1lib1ref (One Librarian, One Reference) librarians each add one reference to Wikipedia. These citations to reliable sources will benefit Wikipedia readers worldwide.

Alex Stinson, GLAM-Wiki (Galleries, Libraries, Archives, Museums) Strategist at the Wikimedia Foundation, and Wiki-librarians Phoebe Ayers (Massachusetts Institute of Technology), Kelly Doyle (Wikipedian in Residence for Gender Equity, West Virginia University Libraries), Merrilee Proffitt (OCLC Research), and Jessamyn West (Vermont librarian and technologist) will discuss what it means as libraries to be involved in Wikipedia and show how you can contribute to #1lib1ref.
