Grants talk:IdeaLab/Free document delivery service for active authors
The Wikipedia LibraryEdit
Hi @Flyingfischer: I noticed this proposal, and I was wondering if you are familiar with the The Wikipedia Library. The program focuses on developing different types of partnerships with publishers, libraries, and library networks to support different approaches to. German language efforts were being supported @Saehrimnir:, though I haven't seen much activity recently. We also talked to @Veronika Krämer (WMDE): about supporting similar efforts.
Wikipedia Library branches connected services available throughout the Wikimedia community to help editors with research. Some language communities have developed projects like the Resource Exchange on English which act like an Interlibrary Loan by facilitating access to materials, like those provided in Publisher Access Donations to be shared with editors upon request.Astinson (WMF) (talk) 15:50, 29 March 2016 (UTC)
April 12 Proposal Deadline: Is your project ready for funding?Edit
The deadline for Individual Engagement Grant (IEG) submissions this round is April 12th, 2016. If you’ve developed your idea into a project that would benefit from funding, consider applying!
To apply, you must (1) create a draft request using the “Expand into an Individual Engagement Grant” button on your idea page, (2) complete the proposal entirely, filling in all empty fields, and (3) change the status from "draft" to "proposed." As soon as you’re ready, you should begin to invite any communities affected by your project to provide feedback on your proposal talk page.
If you have any questions about IEG or would like support in developing your proposal, we're hosting a few proposal help sessions this month in Google Hangouts:
I'm also happy to set up an individual session. With thanks, I JethroBT (WMF) 00:38, 2 April 2016 (UTC)
