Quick Wikipedia citation code added to collection

Another of the many incremental changes slowly being added to the Museum’s collection database went live today – Wikipedia citation code.

You can now find this at the bottom of each object record (for example this Lawrence Hargrave Photographic Print) and if you happen to be editing an article in Wikipedia and need to reference one of the Powerhouse objects you can now just grab the code and paste it directly into Wikipedia’s editing interface.

Nothing too exciting but having seen the National Library of Australia do this a few months ago in their Australian Newspapers project we felt it was worthwhile doing too.
