Wikipedia Books ("books" from now on) are a relatively new way to visualize Wikipedia content. In this talk, I will explore the several ways the production of offline content affects the quality of the online content. In particular, I will tackle aspects such as
- How books drive the creation of new content
- The concerns of a book writer vs the concerns of an article writer
- Using books to identify problems and lackluster areas in online content
- Books as mini "WikiProjects/Taskforces"
- WikiCulture and Community; Research, Analysis, and Education
- Length of presentation/talk
- 25 Minutes

I don't have any special requests
