Visiting Scholars are remote, unpaid Wikipedia editors who become affiliated with top research libraries. They receive full access to the partner library’s e-resources to expand topics of institutional interest which also need development on Wikipedia. This marks the second successful round of institutions participating in the program.
These new positions will be coordinated and managed by the Wikipedia Library’s movement partner, the Wiki Education Foundation (WEF).
The five libraries involved are at:
- DePaul University
- McMaster University
- Smithsonian Institution
- University of Pittsburgh
- University of Washington
