Twice per year, #1Lib1Ref — abbreviated for one librarian, one reference — calls on librarians around the world, and anyone who has a passion for free knowledge, to add missing references to articles on Wikipedia.
Wikipedia is one of the first stops for readers and researchers. It’s an especially important resource now, during COVID-19, when people are increasingly turning to the platform for trustworthy, unbiased, and up-to-date information. Join us to help improve the quality of content on Wikipedia for the billions of people staying at home during this public health crisis.
Your goal is to add at least one reference to Wikipedia! Any citation to a reliable source is a benefit to Wikipedia readers worldwide. When you edit, make sure to include the hashtag #1Lib1Ref in the edit summary.
The #1Lib1Ref campaign is hosted by the Wikimedia Foundation and supported by the Wikipedia Library Team and Wikimedia Affiliates around the world. We also work closely with international and local library networks to promote the campaign.
Amid COVID-19, #1Lib1Ref has transitioned to a fully virtual campaign. Please follow WHO guidelines to protect the safety of yourself and others, and do not hold in-person events. See our resources page for guidance on hosting virtual events, and learn more about Wikimedia’s COVID-19 response here
