Wikipedia and libraries as a guide to the 21st century.

How is information verified on Wikipedia? What is its role in the current information jungle? How does a Wikipedian verify the source of their information? What photos and audiovisual files will find a place in the Commons repository and what will be problematic ones in terms of free licenses?

Lucie talked about this topic with librarians on 22 February as part of the educational cycle “Libraries as 21st century guides – media education for librarians and the public” of the Open Society Foundation (OSF).

In addition to this activity, we have previously considered together the use of Wikiversity for managing the outputs of the OSF project. Many of the librarians involved also already have hands-on experience with our courses or editing.

In May, participants will take part in the next round of the 1Lib1Ref campaign challenge.
