December 10 @ 12:00 pm 1:00 pm

Megan Wacha, Scholarly Communications Librarian, Office of Library Services

People around the world visit Wikipedia when they want to learn about a new topic, but did you know it’s one of the primary traffic drivers to peer-reviewed research as well? This session will introduce attendees to the “encyclopedia anyone can edit,” with a specific focus on its relationship to the scholarly community. Topics will include the representation of researchers and their work, as well the use of Wikipedia in the classroom.
