About The Wikipedia Library

The Wikipedia Library is an open research hub where active Wikipedia editors can gain access to reliable sources that support their editing. We aim to make access and use of sources free, easy, and collaborative.

Each Wikipedia Library branch is run by a great team of local coordinators and supported by the Wikimedia Foundation. This [Language] branch is coordinated by [User:Example] and [User:Example]. Make use of our services to do better research, get involved, and help out!

GoalsEdit

We are working together towards five big goals:

  • Connect editors with their local library and freely accessible resources
  • Partner to provide free access to paywalled publications, databases, universities, and libraries
  • Build relationships among our community of editors, libraries, and librarians
  • Help editors to find and use sources
  • Promote broader open access in publishing and research
