I had a marvelous time presenting the 2014 Preconference Workshop for the Society of Indiana Archivists at the Indiana State Library this afternoon with my dear friend and colleague Amanda Starkel, the Information Commons and eLearning Librarian at Butler University. The topic of our presentation was Wikipedia for Archivists and covered the basics of Wikipedia editing, licensing, and community standards for GLAM professionals. The LibGuide from which we presented can be found at Butler LibGuides and includes dozens of resources for the beginning information professional Wikipedian.

Friday Link Round-Up

Workshop preparation left me little time for keeping up with my favorite RSS feeds this week, so I spent a lovely and quiet Friday night catching up.

  • 400,000 Stars (via Boing Boing) - The story of the "women who worked as human computers at Harvard's observatory" from new-to-me podcast The Memory Palace. Looking forward to making my way through their archives! (Favorite podcast app for iOS, by the way, is Pocket Casts, a universal app well worth the $3.99 price tag, also available for Android)
