Wikipedia & Linked Data Projects Student Intern at Pritzker Military Library

The Wikipedia & Linked Data Projects Student Intern will take key subjects in which the library has extensive and unique holdings and update the references section of those Wikipedia and Citizendum encyclopedia entries with ISBNs of books from the Library’s collection or other appropriate links on those topics so that when potential patrons click on those links they are referred to the Library as a resource on that topic. This intern, time-allowing, may explore similar linked data projects that direct users to the Pritzker Military Museum & Library’s resources.  This work will be done at the 104 S. Michigan Ave Monroe building.
