Ongoing contributions from the State Library of NSW
Content added by trained staff at SLNSW is a credit to their organisation and to ours. For example, Wikipedia now has an article on Nita Kibble (born 1879), their first woman librarian.
Inside History Q&A
Early in July, the magazine Inside History ran a Q&A for its readers to answer their questions about Wikipedia. The evening session, hosted on Facebook, was a collaboration between the Library and Wikimedia Australia (WMAU). WMAU was represented on-site by Whiteghost.ink and supported online by Chapter members Chuq, 99of9, John Vandenberg and Wittylama. Readers of the magazine now have a better understanding of Wikipedia and the publication wants to work with us again.
At QUT, the Library along with the QUT Information Studies Group and ALIA Queensland invited the local library community to hear Wittylama speak about Wikipedia in a talk entitled "Everything you wanted to know about Wikipedia but were too afraid to ask." An enthusiastic crowd of approximately 70 academic and public librarians attended the session.
