Local studies collections, librarians and the Norwegian local history wiki Tor Sveum New Library World English 2010 Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to discuss the relevance of local studies collections and contributions from local studies librarians to a Norwegian local history wiki.

Design/methodology/approach – The paper focuses on access to metadata in the form of bibliographies, databases and catalogues, in addition to general articles on local history. The methodological approach is qualitative and comparative based on semi-structured interviews with librarians in charge of local studies collections and with the administrators of the wiki. The study includes an analysis of a selection of local studies collections and criteria for inclusion into the local history wiki. A short comparison with history wikis in other countries is added.

Findings – Local studies collections contain valuable and unique material for the wiki, especially metadata resources. The expertise of librarians could increase the value of the wiki. Generally, librarians are not active contributors. Strategies for involvement are needed.

Originality/value – The paper may encourage and inspire local studies librarians to contribute actively to the wiki and incorporate relevant parts of their collections.

Accessing the inaccessible: Creating a digital cartobibliography of embedded maps Haggit C. Journal of Map and Geography Libraries English 2009 Maps within printed books have long been both useful for research and often difficult to access. Numerous indexes have been published in the past 150 years to resolve this problem, though these efforts have necessarily been limited in scope. A selection of these works is reviewed, and an online and collaborative cartobibliography aimed at providing a method to index embedded maps using wiki software is discussed. 0 0
