1Ju, B. ; Stewart, B.: "The right information" : perceptions of information bias among Black Wikipedians.
In: Journal of documentation. 75(2019) no.6, S.1486-1502.
Abstract: Purpose The purpose of this paper is to examine motivators that drive Black Wikipedia contribution. The authors explore motivations around content contribution, effects of gender on motivations and self-perceptions of Black Wikipedia labor. Design/methodology/approach A total of 318 Black American Wikipedia contributors completed an online survey. The authors employed both quantitative and qualitative methods in the study including descriptive statistics, multivariate (MANOVA) and univariate (ANOVA) analysis of variance to examine gender differences in Wikipedia content contribution. In addition, open-ended responses were evaluated, through content analysis, to make inferences on their perceptions of Wikipedia labor. Findings This paper identifies racial identity and perceptions of information quality as strong motivators in content contribution among Black Wikipedians. Motivators are gender variant; men are more motivated than women with the lone exception being racial identity. Additionally, the study identifies Wikipedia as a contested space among Black contributors and is a site of resistance. Originality/value Black Wikipedians information activity is a relatively new and understudied phenomenon. This paper presents new insight and a deeper understanding of Black Wikipedians' motivations for information sharing behaviors in the most popular encyclopedia on the internet.

2Keck, K.A. ; Stewart, B.: Cataloguing non-English government publications in a medium research library.
In: Cataloging and classification quarterly. 17(1993) nos.1/2, S.207-218.
Abstract: The authors provide a brief review of recent literature addressing cataloging of non-U.S. government publications (with an emphasis on publications in languages other than English) and discuss issues specific to bibliographic processing of official government publications, including poor internal bibliographic control, restrictive or unusual government policies, unusual government structures and practices,and highly irregular publishing schedules. They summarize a survey of cataloging copy availability conducted for non-English, non-U.S. government publications in the OCLC database, and conclude with a discussion of practice in dealing with these materials in place in one medium-sized library.
