The 2014 programme of the Library Science Talks is available here:
In recent years, there have been a growing number of ”Wikipedian in Residence” in libraries in Europe and North America. These initiatives between the Wikimedia communities
and libraries has resulted in many successful collaborations between both communities. It has contributed to making library collections more visible and readily accessible though Wikipedia and has created a better understanding of Wikimedia projects and initiatives
with staff of the library.
For this LST, wikipedians from two national libraries will share their experience and views in working in national libraries. This is an opportunity to hear about two approaches in regards to
the role, conditions and requirements of the cooperation between wikipedians and libraries. At the end of the talk, the audience should have a clear understanding of how to become a wikipedian or how to establish a programme in their library for a wikipedian.
About the speakers:
