Description:

Description:

Join Rob Favini, OCLC Member Relations Liaison, for an overview of the many resources and learning opportunities available to the library community through WebJunction. The session will also provide a closer look at Wikipedia + Libraries (http://www.webjunction.org/explore-topics/wikipedia-libraries.html), a project of OCLC Research and WebJunction. Attendees will learn how this new project facilitates human-to-human connections among Wikipedians and librarians, and exposes librarians to the inner-workings of Wikipedia so that they can work hands-on with the resource and adeptly guide their patrons' use of it.
