Wednesday, November 3, 2010

Paul Courant was quoted in an NPR story about a new Wikipedia/academia partnership aimed at increasing the number of public policy articles found on Wikipedia, a free and web-based collaborative encyclopedia. The goal of this project is for public policy students to turn their coursework into Wikipedia articles. Courant told NPR this experiment will help library scientists learn more about the crowd-sourcing model upon which Wikipedia is based.
