The Wikimedia Foundation has awarded Vanderbilt University a grant to advance WikiCite among information professionals. WikiCite is a “Wikimedia initiative to develop open citations and linked bibliographic data to serve free knowledge.” The grant will fund a training program titled “WikiCite for Librarians: Interactive Learning Pathways for Information Professionals.” The participants in this grant gained entering bibliographic data into Wikidata by way of their participation in our summer VandyCite team. This grant will permit them to consolidate what they learned and to share that knowledge with fellow information professionals.
