National Archives hires 'Wikipedian in Residence'
Wednesday - 6/1/2011, 5:15pm EDT
WASHINGTON - The National Archives has appointed its first "Wikipedian in Residence" to help connect with the Wikipedia community.
The Archives announced Wednesday that Dominic McDevitt-Parks was hired to help shape the Internet's leading online encyclopedia. He is a graduate student in history and archives management at Simmons College in Boston.
The paid summer intern position is based at the Archives II facility in College Park, Md.
The Archives says McDevitt-Parks has more than seven years of Wikipedia editing experience. His job will be to foster collaboration between the Wikipedia community and the National Archives. That could include using some of Wikipedia's tools for ongoing digitization projects at the archives.
McDevitt-Parks says Wikipedia is the ultimate public history project, and he describes himself as a history buff, news junkie and "word nerd."
