Project Information

This open access edited volume will be a collection of approximately
20 chapters authored by academic library workers and faculty, Library
and Information Science (LIS) faculty, and disciplinary faculty from
around the globe that highlights engagement with Wikimedia-related
projects and activities. This volume will be divided into two
sections, and possibly a third: The first section will include
real-world examples of activities and approaches to working with
Wikipedia. The second section will focus on the theories and
underlying concepts required for the development of pedagogical
approaches to teaching with and within Wikipedia. A third thematic
section may be added, depending on the breadth and number of
submissions, for example, a section related specifically to Wikidata.
