Description from store See relevant results from the Digital Public Library of America on any Wikipedia article. This extension queries the DPLA each time you visit a Wikipedia article, using the article's title, redirects, and categories to find relevant items. If you click a link at the top of the article, it loads in a series of links to the items. The original code behind WikiDPLA was written at LibHack, a hackathon at the American Library Association's 2014 Midwinter Meeting in Philadelphia: http://www.libhack.org/ ☆☆☆ OPEN SOURCE ☆☆☆ See the code on GitHub: https://github.com/phette23/wdpla-ext Found a bug?

  • (2019-05-05) Bryan Stark: Extremely useful if you are going to school and your instructor is telling you that you can't use wikipedia as a scholarly source. With this, you can research DPLA to find scholarly sources cited in wikipedia.
  • (2014-07-28) Jake Orlowitz: I helped Phette code this script at LibHack and it's been nifty from the beginning. It does just what it says, surfaces relevant documents and images on a live Wikipedia article. It pulls directly from DPLA's API and is a great way to go digital explorin' from the encyclopedic overview of Wikipedia to the archival treasures catalogued at the Digital Public Library of America. Neat!

  • (2015-04-09, v:1.0.2) Patrick Durusau: Login to Wikipedia required for all uses
    I started to file a problem report b/c the browser extension wasn't working. The text: "This version is a Wikipedia userscript that only works when you are logged in. For a persistent experience use the Chrome browser extension" left me with the impression that Wikipedia login was only necessary with the userscript, not with the Chrome browser extension. Suggest saying that Wikipeida login is required in all cases, assuming that is correct. Interesting extension, looking foreward to seeing more. Patrick
