Special Collections gets “wiki-ed”

Special Collections is working on a project to add links to our manuscript collections in Wikipedia. As we’ve learned through our surveys, our students begin with Google searches and Wikipedia searches. ¬†External links were added to pages for individuals whose manuscript collections we hold. Visit the Peter Camejo page on Wikipedia to see an example.

    An excellent idea! There is a wealth of material, but nobody (except us) knows that it’s there. An extensive set of links from Wikipedia would certainly give us better exposure.
