#Librarians and #Wikipedians

Two papers about libraries work with Wikipedia have been published on the IFLA (International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions) website. One focuses on public libraries and the other on academic libraries. "The papers focus on Academic and Research Libraries and on Public Libraries and are an introduction to the many facets of interaction between libraries and the reference website. They encourage librarians world-wide to engage more with Wikipedia, guided by the examples outlined. But they are also a starting point for further IFLA work on the practical and policy issues raised by the rise in the number of people generating their own content online, not least through Wikipedia."
