Librarians as Wikipedians
Academic presentations can be uploaded in their original slide format. Presentations are usually represented as slide decks. Videos of presentations can be uploaded as media.
Wikimedia, through its various projects especially Wikipedia, is endeavoring “to empower and engage people around the world to collect and develop educational content under a free license or in the public domain, and to disseminate it effectively and globally”. Libraries, though their respective mandates, envision a world where there are no barriers to knowledge. This paper will outline the mutual actual and potential benefits that can be derived from using Wikipedia as a means for knowledge creation and diffusion, especially aimed at contributing towards the decolonisation of content on the Internet.
