Wikipedia and Libraries: Better Together
Information-seeking happens on Wikipedia. To meet users where they are, library staff are extending their librarianship into the inner-workings of Wikipedia. Library staff are now correcting grammar, contributing to articles, weighing in on global discussions, and building community through editing events.

Join us to learn about the pathways that library staff have taken with Wikipedia. We will also provide an update on OCLC projects related to this collaborative encyclopedia and point to resources that are available to learn more about it. And, do you have your own "Wikipedia and Libraries" experience? If so, please share it with us!

EBSCO Databases and Services: FOLIO
FOLIO is a collaboration of libraries, developers and vendors building an open source library services platform. It supports traditional resource management functionality and can be extended into other institutional areas. FOLIO's development started in 2016 and has quarterly major releases since 2018.
FOLIO continuously evaluates and improves its software architecture and quality assurance processes to ensure that the open source library services platform offers a solution that scales, is secure and can adopt future needs. Key features are multi-tenancy, micro-service principles, and software-as-a-service capabilities. This presentation will explain the latest FOLIO community developments and updates.

Screening on Netflix . . . or through an Online Library Near You: Documentary Film as Educational Resource
What happens when leading documentary filmmakers team up with experts in practical theology (religious educators, chaplains, and psychologists) to engage the real-life issues that challenge our society? The result is a growing collection of documentary-based educational resources that brings together film, study guides, and discussion materials designed to enhance theological education and congregational engagement well beyond seminary walls. Peabody Award-winning Executive Producer Nick Stuart, along with Odyssey Impact’s Director of City Partnerships, Rev. Dr. Katie Givens Kime, will screen extracts from their Netflix documentary and discuss how libraries can take advantage of sophisticated multimedia resources to enrich practical education and issue-based learning.
