  • Looking to expand Iron Mountain’s artistic side

    The Boston Globe - 08/02/2016

    College professors reading through their students’ essays often have to determine if they pass the sniff test: Does the paper seem authentic, or does it rely a bit too heavily on Wikipedia?

    But for Cecelia Musselman, an English professor at Northeastern University, writing a Wikipedia entry was the entire point. Over the past year, she’s had dozens of her students write articles for the online encyclopedia, as part of a push to increase the number of science-related entries on the site. In all, 141 articles were written by Northeastern students, who wrote on topics ranging as varied as dolphin feeding techniques to gyrification. The effort was part of the “Year of Science” program that has been hosted by the Wikipedia Education Foundation.
