Library History Work in Wikipedia

Hello Blog Readers,

We wanted to encourage everyone to check out the wonderful library history work being carried out by Dr. Kathleen de la Peña McCook and her students. For the past several years, they have created a number of wikipedia pages on key people and events from the annals of librarianship. Examples include Helen Marot and Henrietta M. Smith. Find an overview of their work, as well as more wikipedia pages, in Dr. McCook’s article for the Progressive Librarian, “Librarians as Wikipedians: From Library History to Librarianship and Human Rights”.
