World Digital Library Wikipedian in Residence
World Digital Library to host a Wikipedian in Residence
At the Wikimania Google Opening Reception held in the World Digital Library's honor on July 11, John Van Oudenaren, Director of the World Digital Library, announced in his address the World Digital Library's intention to host a Wikipedian in Residence. The World Digital Library is composed of many participating institutions from around the world, mostly national libraries, and operated by the Library of Congress and UNESCO. In late July, Dominic met with WDL's Product Manager to discuss potential ideas for the position. As of yet, the role is still being defined, and no call for applicants has been put out.
