Volume 1 Issue 3, December/January 2013

(Sign up for monthly delivery)

Happy New Year, and welcome to a special double issue of Books & Bytes. We've included a retrospective on the changes and progress TWL has seen over the last year, the results of the survey TWL participants completed in December, some of our plans for the future, a second interview with a Wiki Love Libraries coordinator, and more. Here's to 2014 being a year of expansion and innovation for TWL!

The Wikipedia Library completed the first 6 months of its Individual Engagement grant last week. Here's where we are and what we've done:
Increased access to sources: 1500 editors signed up for 3700 free accounts, individually worth over $500,000, with usage increases of 400-600%
Deep networking: Built relationships with Credo, HighBeam, Questia, JSTOR, Cochrane, LexisNexis, EBSCO, New York Times, and OCLC
New pilot projects: Started the Wikipedia Visiting Scholar project to empower university-affiliated Wikipedia researchers
Developed community: Created portal connecting 250 newsletter recipients, 30 library members, 3 volunteer coordinators, and 2 part-time contractors
Tech scoped: Spec'd out a reference tool for linking to full-text sources and established a basis for OAuth integration
Broad outreach: Wrote a feature article for Library Journal's The Digital Shift; presenting at the American Library Association annual meeting

FYI about User:24.185.128.158 and article Newark, New Jersey[edit]

Hello Alansohn, Just For Your Information, I've place a post in Wikipedia:Administrator intervention against vandalism about this user so hopefully they'll be put in the corner until they can learn to play nice on Wikipedia. Additionally I've asked to have Newark, New Jersey Semi-Protected from IP address for the time being so that if they try to evade the ban they won't be able to use an IP address. Thanks for keeping a watch. TheGoofyGolfer (talk) 00:55, 29 July 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for taking care of this. I was on alert myself on this issue. Alansohn (talk) 01:07, 29 July 2014 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for August 3[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Mercer County, New Jersey, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Professional Indoor Football League. Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.
