Glad you're here[edit]

I just wanted to echo the welcome of others. Librarians are some of our fiercest allies and it's really exciting to have you on board. Let me know if you have any questions. I'd also love to hear your feedback on a project called The Wikipedia Library, a way for Wikipedia editors to access paywalled sources for free. Welcome to Wikipedia!

Hi, Ocaasi. Thanks so much for the warm welcome - I really appreciate it! The Wikipedia Library sounds like an interesting project! I know how frustrating it can be for researchers unaffiliated with a university and without access at their local library to try and access content behind pay walls. I like the idea of giving dedicated editors a 1-year account. Like you write on the project page - getting access to these resources can only help improve the quality of Wikipedia articles and citations. I look forward to seeing the project develop! rchopman 19:15, 4 March 2013 (UTC)
You also might be very interested in a few projects we have. One is called WikiProject Resource exchange, where editors provide sources for eachother. It's at WP:RX. Another project is our GLAM initiative. This is an organized effort for Wikipedians to partner with Galleries, Libraries, Archives, and Museums to imrove our coverage of their content, add their collections to Wikipedia when the licenses match, and otherwise advance our common missions. You can read more about it at Wikipedia:GLAM and http://outreach.wikimedia.org/wiki/GLAM. Cheers! Ocaasi t | c 19:48, 4 March 2013 (UTC)
WikiProject Resource looks like a great way to help each other out! I'll definitely have to spend some more time poking around there. I do know a little about the GLAM initiative - we have a few local groups that I haven't had a chance to meet up with yet. I hope to get involved with them soon. I'm glad to know there are so many communities and projects I can get involved in here on Wikipedia! rchopman 13:19, 5 March 2013 (UTC)
