abstract
Who has never consulted Wikipedia? Probably not a single European academic. Almost certainly not a single western or eastern student. Search engines and free online encyclopedias are having a profound and irreversible impact on many aspects of university life. This impact is further amplified by closely linked initiatives such as the digitalization of university libraries and other printed material. This pilot project, in which the Ethnographic Collections of Ghent University plays a role, is a plea for the start of a virtual ethnographic museums in wikimedia, to which everyone in the field will be able contribute.
