Wikipedia’s #1Lib1Ref campaign 15 January-3 February 2017

Wikimedia’s flagship campaign to strengthen citations calls on librarians to help add references to articles this month. To get involved, check out the #1Lib1Ref campaign page. Ways to take part include:

Libraries planning events include Edinburgh and Bodleian (Oxford). “Wikipedia’s strength is in its references, the source of Wikipedia’s reliability. #1lib1ref is the library community coming together to give us a most precious gift: a citation. We hope the experience of #1lib1ref can provide tools and experience to help librarians critically integrate Wikipedia into the broader research and information literacy landscape.” Jake Orlowitz, Wikipedia Library Team
