- Article development
Editors researching articles they have created, have gone to libraries and information sources requesting further help, only to find their article is
given back to them as the main source of information to work from.
The Loop; editor creates, utilises sources, goes to a library or source,
to find the article created has become the main source.
This presentation looks at the problem where google and wikipedia as the first
search item by library staff, is a limiting factor in developing reliable
articles, and looks at ways of developing beyond the loop.
