SLLG members are invited to attend a Wikipedia information session led by Dr Sara Thomas, Scotland programme co-ordinator for Wikimedia UK.

 

 

This event is designed to:

 

- demystify the process of how information gets onto Wikipedia;

 

- address common concerns about reliability;

 

- explain the encyclopedia's guidelines around verifiability, reliable sources and conflict of interest as well as Wikimedia UK's interest in information and digital literacy; and

 

- explain how and why Wikipedia wants librarians to get involved.

 

 

 

RSVP instructions are included in the invitation email. Non-members may wish to become an SLLG member in order to attend.

 

 

Many thanks
