What do you think of Wikipedia? It has become a true presence on the Internet, praised by some and cursed by others.

At noon on Tuesday, Dec. 7, at Village Books in Bellingham, Western Washington University Librarian Paul Piper will present “Wikipedia: Pure Evil or Beatific Savior?” and lead a discussion on the topic. The presentation will explore some of the concepts and features that underlie Wikipedia.

Piper is interested in information and knowledge production, with a particular interest in Wikipedia. He writes regularly on Internet topics for the Information Today Company. This event, the third installment in the WWU Connections Series, is co-presented by the Western Washington University Libraries.

This event is free & open to the public.
