A pretty quiet day today. I had one semi research related question, but it turned out to be more of an access problem. Same access as before - couldn't get onto certain EBSCO and ProQuest databases. I gave him/her the tricks to try, and told them to come back if it didn't work. No further word so assumed it worked. None of the questions were interesting enough that I copied them CJ - mostly just technical stuff (e.g., what is microfilm).
I also got started on the lit review, and have put everything I found in a RefWorks folder. I looked through LISA, LISTA, and Library Literature & Information Science with various keywords involving wikipedia and metadata. I found under a dozen articles dealing with wikis/wikipedia and metadata, and found a dozen or so articles on librarians and wikipedia.
The seminal articles on the latter topic seem to be:
Badke, William. "What to Do With Wikipedia." Online: Exploring Technology & Resources for Information Professionals 32.2: (2008), 48-50.
Lally,Ann M.; Dunford,Carolyn E. (2007). Using Wikipedia to Extend Digital Collections
D-Lib Magazine, 2007.
That being said, I think the biblioblogosphere (what a truly nerdy word!) is also a great reference point. A lot of librarians contributing to Wikipedia are bloggers. Some sites to check out include:
A final valuable resourse is the WikiProject Librarians (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:WikiProject_Librarians) site.
I hope this is a good enough start.
Have a great shift tomorrow Sarah!
