National Library of Scotland to Hire a Wikipedian

The BBC reports that the National Library of Scotland is planning to hire a Wikipedian, to help move materials from their collection into Wikipedia, and to help their patrons learn how to use the online encyclopedia.  They mention in the report that the British Library hired its "first" Wikipedian in May, 2012.  I wonder if other major libraries have done this?

Tip of the OOTJ hat to my friend and colleague Roy Balleste, for pointing out the article to me.
