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
...Read Books & Bytes!

The Wikipedia Library: New Account Coordinators Needed[edit]

Hi Books & Bytes recipients: The Wikipedia Library has been expanding rapidly and we need some help! We currently have 10 signups for free account access open and several more in the works... In order to help with those signups, distribute access codes, and manage accounts we'll need 2-3 more Account Coordinators.

It takes about an hour to get up and running and then only takes a couple hours per week, flexible depending upon your schedule and routine. If you're interested in helping out, please drop a note in the next week at my talk page or shoot me an email at: jorlowitz@gmail.com. Thanks and cheers, Jake Ocaasi via MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 23:41, 20 June 2014 (UTC)

Edit war warning[edit]

Dear RR, thank you for your warning, I am well aware of the 3 RR rule and the heightened sensitivity of the page we are addressing. I think I have made my disquiet at your argumentation very clear, however you may be assured I shall not be reverting the category status again - I think it was fairly plain by quoting Joshua, that my last revert was its last. I think the position of the page as it stands is a serious and foolish anomaly, quite inconsistent with wiki, the egregious error of which will become increasingly obvious, for reasons I need not reiterate here. Nonetheless, Best wishes, CS Cpsoper (talk) 20:04, 22 June 2014 (UTC)

Arbitration enforcement editing restriction (Arab-Israeli conflict) amended[edit]

In response to opinions by other administrators at WP:AE, the duration of the restriction banning you from commenting about enforcement restrictions by others is set to three months.  Sandstein  09:40, 29 June 2014 (UTC)

I was not aware that there was any such ban. Please inform me when it was imposed, by whom, and for what offence; this is the first notification I have received. RolandR (talk) 10:13, 29 June 2014 (UTC)
Sorry, I meant to leave this message for another user but opened the wrong talk page. Please disregard this message.  Sandstein  11:08, 29 June 2014 (UTC)
