Library Summer Project Attracts Grant Funding

The Wikimedia Foundation awarded Vanderbilt University a grant to advance WikiCite among information professionals. WikiCite is a “Wikimedia initiative to develop open citations and linked bibliographic data to serve free knowledge.” The grant funded a training program titled “WikiCite for Librarians: Interactive Learning Pathways for Information Professionals.” The program participants entered bibliographic data into Wikidata while participating in our summer VandyCite team. This grant permitted them to consolidate what they learned and to share that knowledge with fellow information professionals.
