Bringing Wikipedia into the Library | American Libraries Magazine

Editor’s Note: I disagree with this article. The site, and its keepers, and the tools used, are not friendly for librarians or most others. It is dominated by those who turn away criticism, replace materials without reason, and seek to keep out those who don’t follow them. The hierarchy of the old guard keeps out anyone who thinks differently. Too bad.. was a good concept and got lost by giving all the power of truth to the leaders with the most history and who dominate the site and its posts.

See how Wikipedia, its community, and libraries are increasingly working together to provide free and open information to all in this excerpt from Leveraging Wikipedia: Connecting Communities of Knowledge (ALA Editions, 2018).

The Right To Browse: A Library Puts Books Into Storage And Readers Cry Foul : NPR Ed : NPR

“To make room, librarians removed tens of thousands of books and other materials that hadn’t been checked out in years. The items were put into storage — some across town, some a few hours away. Students can still request them; it just might take a few days to get them back to the library.”
