GLAM/Newsletter/April 2011/Contents/Indianapolis

In mid-April, a collaboration occured between the museum’s collections department and an individual Wikipedian, who worked together to greatly expand the already existing Broad Ripple Park Carousel article in the hopes of it becoming a Featured Article. Curators worked with the Wikipedian, Ealdgyth, to gather resources and fact check details. Ealdgyth spent an impressive amount of time obtaining additional sources and revamping the article, utilizing her connections within the Wikipedia community for additional copyediting and to move it through the Featured Article Candidate process.
