New from OCLC/Web Junction: “Training Curriculum For Wikipedia + Libraries Now Available Online for Library Trainers”

From OCLC/Web Junction:

Training curriculum, slides, and handouts from the Wikipedia + Libraries: Better Together course are now available on the WebJunction website. These newly released materials provide instruction and resources for trainers to teach library staff how to edit Wikipedia articles, run Wikipedia workshops, and organize community outreach events that incorporate Wikipedia. The curriculum release marks the completion of OCLC’s 18-month grant-funded project to strengthen ties between Wikipedia and US public libraries toward the common purpose of improving access to the world’s knowledge.
