Did you know that Wikipedia’s online encyclopaedia is represented in 287 languages and contains more than 30 million articles? Volunteers from around the world contribute content or create new entries on a wide range of topics via continuous crowdsourcing. It is one of the most popular sites on the internet. Wikipedia can be considered a search engine its own right because of the immense breadth of subject matter it contains.
We are happy to launch the updated Yarra Plenty Regional Library article on Wikipedia today as Wikicommons also launches its #1lib1ref South campaign encouraging Librarians to add citations to Wikipedia. YPRL staff will be participating in the campaign #1lib1refYPRL.
