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

Hi There[edit]

Hello Regent,

If you remember, our paths had crossed during the issue of Pushpak Express. Subsequently we had a discussion on the topic at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Trains#Timetables - existence and convention.

The user Abhishek191288 who was so enthusiastic in undoing what i had done in the article refused to participate in the discussion at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Trains#Timetables - existence and convention where the issue of routing, time tables was discussed in extensive detail.

The article was subsequently modified accordingly but it seems Abhishek191288 is back at it again. I fail to understand why he failed to utter a single word during the discussion & is now running around quoting pages to read as if an answer will drop out of the sky rather than discussing things out.

I would appreciate any suggestions that you may have including temporary page protection. Superfast1111 (talk) 15:54, 29 March 2014 (UTC)

Hi Superfast1111. I'm taking a break from Wikipedia - definitely till the middle of May and perhaps longer. Sorry!--regentspark (comment) 15:45, 30 March 2014 (UTC)

No problem. Sorry to trouble you. Superfast1111 (talk) 04:38, 31 March 2014 (UTC)
