  1. User:Iselilja. Renewal. Mostly English Wikipedia lately, but also Norwegian bokmål Wikipedia. I write about society and politics, so newspaper articles are of high interest. I have found HighBeam especially valuable for topics from non-English speaking countries (other than Scandinavian) because there are often a draught of sources for those topics. Regards, Iselilja (talk) 17:30, 27 September 2013 (UTC)
  2. User:درفش کاویانی. Renewal. My account has expired, and I would like to extend it please. im ctive in Persian Wikipedia, Tajik Wikipedia, English Wikipedia and German Wikipedia. I start editing in wikipedia since 14 August 2008. i wrote 7 featured article and 3 good article in Persian Wikipedia. I write about History and Photography. Thanks Darafsh Kaviyani (Talk) 15:36, 3 October 2013 (UTC)
  3. User:TenPoundHammer. Renewal. Expired and I'd like to extend. I'm mainly active on retail and country music articles, and the Highbeam subsription was extremely useful in fleshing out mall articles. I've been editing since December 2005 and have created nearly 1,500 articles. Highbeam has a lot of information that is of great use to me. Ten Pound Hammer(What did I screw up now?) 04:00, 5 October 2013 (UTC)
  4. User:MrX. Renewal - I have used Highbeam extensively over the past year to add references to newly created and existing articles. I have more than 30,000 edits and have created 138 articles. Thank you for your consideration. - MrX 12:21, 5 October 2013 (UTC)
  5. User:Malik Shabazz Renewal. I've been an editor since 2006 and have made more than 76,000 edits. Very helpful resource. Thank you. — Malik Shabazz Talk/Stalk 18:48, 6 October 2013 (UTC)
  6. User:Gobonobo. Renewal. Despite having library access to many databases, I often find myself wanting access to HighBeam sources. I intend to use access to work on historical biographies of women. Gobōnobō + c 20:20, 6 October 2013 (UTC)
  7. WhisperToMe (talk · contribs) - I have been active editor for about a decade and I would like to have Highbeam to help expand my sourcing. I do not have highbeam access from an alternate source. WhisperToMe (talk) 17:39, 8 October 2013 (UTC)
  8. 4nn1l2 (talk · contribs). Persian Wikipedia. It's the second year I'm editing on Wikipedia and of course enjoying it. I usually write about Middle East history, culture, and societies. Aside from Middle East topics, I enthusiastically edit articles on engineering and fundamental sciences. I have wrote 2 Featured article yet and expanded a whole bunch of other ones. I intend to expand my work on Wikipedia but unfortunately due to recent sanctions against Iran, I have lost my access to digital libraries. I really appreciate it if you let me have access to HighBeam. 4nn1l2 (talk) 11:36, 9 October 2013 (UTC)
  9. User:Shalbat. Spanish Wikipedia. I have more than 24 000 edits and I have created more than 200 articles. I would like to go on with this work. --Shalbat (talk) 15:07, 9 October 2013 (UTC)
  10. User:Smsarmad Renewal, I am an active English Wikipedia user and have more than 26,000 edits. I mostly edit articles related to Pakistan, a topic area that lacks in a number of ways, one of which is availability of online sources. HighBeam is a good resource and was helpful in creating/expanding a number of articles. -- SMS Talk 10:25, 10 October 2013 (UTC)
  11. User:Mackensen Renewal. I've used HighBeam over the last year to improve our coverage of North American railroading topics. I do not have access from an alternative source. Thank you. Mackensen (talk) 13:05, 11 October 2013 (UTC)
  12. User:Czar. enwp. History of education, art, and video games—mostly content expansion, new articles, but also source verification. I've hit the paywall dozens of times in the last year and my institution doesn't have HB access. My research time spent would be greatly improved with access. czar  13:12, 15 October 2013 (UTC)
  13. User:Apwoolrich I am an independent scholar, interested in C19 industrial history and biography. Just now doing intensive research into Rees's Cyclopaedia Apwoolrich (talk) 06:59, 19 October 2013 (UTC)
  14. Doc Taxon (talk · contribs): I am active in en:WP:REX and especially active in its German sister project de:WP:BIBA or de:WP:BIBR.

Thank you, -- Doc Taxon (talk) 13:47, 22 October 2013 (UTC)
  15. User:Blackberry Sorbet. Interest lies largely in articles that often predate the commonality of the internet and access to HighBeams digitized archives of older print publications would be extremely useful in sourcing material as well as opening avenues for new articles which might otherwise fall by the wayside for lack of access to sources. BlackberrySorbet 18:24, 24 October 2013 (UTC)
  16. -jkb- (talk) 15:00, 27 October 2013 (UTC) dewiki, cswikisource, etc.; renewal needed for research in quite difficult themes (Czechoslovakia - History, Eastern Europe, etc.), thanks, -jkb- (talk) 15:00, 27 October 2013 (UTC)

  18. User:Thoughtfortheday Renewal. I have found some of the publications (often behind a payroll) very useful, for example for classical music content. I hope to introduce the resource to other wikipedians. Thoughtfortheday (talk) 21:11, 27 October 2013 (UTC)
  19. Jason Rees: I have found some of the materials useful, so i would love to renew this account if at all possible.Jason Rees (talk) 21:13, 27 October 2013 (UTC)

Over 4 years, have totaled 18,000 edits, 344 articles created, 4 Featured Lists, 5 Good Articles, and 18 DYKs. Typically edit articles in Wikipedia:WikiProject Universities, Wikipedia:WikiProject Pittsburgh and Wikipedia:WikiProject National Register of Historic Places.

  23. Yoninah (talk · contribs) Renewal The service was very helpful for accessing archived articles on Jerusalem streets and architecture, and Jewish subjects and personalities from around the world. Another one-year subscription would be ideal. Thank you, Yoninah (talk) 22:23, 27 October 2013 (UTC)
  24. Bbb23 (talk · contribs) Renewal. English Wikipedia. I use it often in sourcing issues when an Internet link is not used in the reference. I have over 50,000 edits.--Bbb23 (talk) 22:26, 27 October 2013 (UTC)
  25. ssriram_mt (talk · contribs) New .English Wikipedia. I am part of wikiproject India and Hinduism and need higher reference sources. I have 18 GAs and more than 60,000 edits.

  26. Khazar2 -- Renewal. One of the top 100 Wikipedians by edit count, have contributed to 40-50 Good Articles in the past year. I used Highbeam almost daily for its encyclopedias, reviews, and newspaper articles. -- Khazar2 (talk) 00:25, 28 October 2013 (UTC)

  28. OppidumNissenae -- Renewal -- I wrote about news 500 entries in some Italian VDQ is of medical interest and more, I think HighBeam is a valuable resource.OppidumNissenae (talk) 00:32, 28 October 2013 (UTC)
  29. DCDuring. Most active as admin at English Wiktionary. We constantly need to attest to usage in a wide range of subject areas. One of our particular weaknesses is in coverage of terms used in contemporary workplace, especially other than computing. That in turn is partially attributable to lack of access to trade press, not well covered at Google or other free sources. English Wiktionary is an important resource for other wiktionaries. DCDuring (talk) 00:53, 28 October 2013 (UTC)
  30. Roisterer (talk) 01:23, 28 October 2013 (UTC) Active member since 2004 with 22,000 & a bit edits, a couple of GAs and lots of article creation and editing, all of which would be greatly improved with a HighBeam subscription.
  31. Froid (talk) 08:05, 28 October 2013 (UTC). I meet the requirements and will fulfill expectations. Highbeam will enhance my contributions to Wikipedia; I've long wanted access, as when conducting research for the purposes of contributing or verification of preexisting content, I frequently encounter sources for which a subscription is required. My stats: # Froid (talk) 08:05, 28 October 2013 (UTC). First edit Sep 09, 2006 / Unique pages edited: 7,401 / Live edits: 20,734 / Deleted edits: 0 / Total edits (including deleted): 20,734.
  32. billreid -- Renewal as per my previous application. Thank you. --Bill Reid | (talk) 09:18, 28 October 2013 (UTC)
  33. KrakatoaKatie Active English Wikipedia admin with around 20K edits - I mainly work on biographies but I often find great articles to improve, in many different subject areas, while doing admin work. It would be a great help to have access to the Highbeam database. :-) KrakatoaKatie 10:29, 28 October 2013 (UTC)
  34. Harrias -- Renewal -- Very useful for sports articles research. Harrias talk 13:51, 28 October 2013 (UTC)
  35. Esoglou -- I think HighBeam would be very useful both for adding new material and for checking attributions. Esoglou (talk) 19:45, 28 October 2013 (UTC)
  36. User:Enric Naval. Renewal I have successfully used Highbeam to locate newspaper articles for Mother's Day, cold fusion, crop circles and others. I intend to use HighBeam to keep locating old newspaper articles as necessity arises. Enric Naval (talk) 16:01, 29 October 2013 (UTC)
  37. Rlendog. Renewal - 50,000+ edits, over 100 articles created. Work on a number of projects, including mammals, music and sports. Useful for looking up information in old newspaper articles. Rlendog (talk) 19:58, 29 October 2013 (UTC)
  38. Mayooranathan -- New --I am an active Wikipedian in Tamil Wikipedia for 10 years now. I started more than 3,500 articles and improved many more. Highbeam access will be very usefull for me in the above work. Mayooranathan (talk) 09:48, 31 October 2013 (UTC)
  39. Ryoga Godai -- Renewal --My subscription expired this August. I edit music articles and anime, manga articles. Highbeam is a really useful source for old newspaper articles that are not usually found on the internet. A renewed subscription would really help me. ごだい (会話) 12:12, 31 October 2013 (UTC)
  40. Ca$e (talk). Renewal. I found HighBeam very useful. I work - currently with > 40k edits - on a range of topics esp. in philosophy and religious studies and am, among other things, involved in the respective editors' forums in the german WP. Ca$e (talk) 17:26, 31 October 2013 (UTC)
  41. SchroCat. Renewal: great source, and I now find myself struggling without it. - SchroCat (talk) 03:34, 1 November 2013 (UTC)
  42. Queeste Mostly active on the Dutch Wikipedia, less on the English. Especially interested in the psychology and psychiatry journals, in addition also history and religion. --Queeste (talk) 08:33, 1 November 2013 (UTC)
  43. Amqui Contributor on several Wikimedia projects, but would use this access mainly to contribute on the French Wikipedia where I wrote more than a dozen Good Articles, created more than 1,000 articles, and have more than 20,000 edits in the mainspace. I write on a lot of different subjects, including but not limited to anthropology, botany, ethnology, geography, history, religions and zoology. Amqui (talk) 19:39, 4 November 2013 (UTC)
  44. Tyrol5 -- Renewal. Great resource. I've worked on several historical U.S. election articles and having access to historical news articles is invaluable. Great to have access to journal articles as well when I dabble into the U.S. space program, etc. Tyrol5 [Talk] 00:44, 11 November 2013 (UTC)
  45. User:Hack. Renewal. Used this mostly for researching biographies on historical sporting figures. Hack (talk) 14:00, 14 November 2013 (UTC)
  46. John M Baker. New. English Wikipedia. I work on articles about finance and about words and phrases, and I contribute to the Reference Desk and the Resource Exchange. Although I have access to some other databases that I use for the Resource Exchange, I do not have HighBeam access. John M Baker (talk) 20:46, 16 November 2013 (UTC)
  47. Doug Coldwell. New. English Wikipedia. I work on articles about colonial people of the United States. I have about 300 Did You Know articles and over 20,000 edits. I do not have HighBeam access and believe it would give good biographical information.--Doug Coldwell (talk) 19:16, 29 November 2013 (UTC)
  48. Acather96 - New. I've been an editor on Wikipedia for nearly four years with 29000+ edits, would find access to sources extremely useful(especially if they include information on plants). Acather96 (click here to contact me) 20:55, 29 November 2013 (UTC)
  49. User:HueSatLumNew. English Wikipedia. I write about just about everything and find paywalls extremely frustrating. I believe HighBeam would provide more and higher-quality sources for writing better and more accurate articles. Cheers, ~HueSatLum 18:42, 5 December 2013 (UTC)
  50. Spanglej Renewal Editing since Feb 2009, around 22000 edits, mostly literary biography content, 12 new biogs. I had Highbeam access for a year through WP and found it mighty useful for biog research and GA development. Span (talk) 16:00, 13 December 2013 (UTC)
  51. User:Sagaciousphil New English Wikipedia. I'm a fairly slow and ploddy editor in comparison to most but I like working on historical information; I do have access to some databases through my library card and I pay for Questia myself. I feel High Beam would greatly enhance the sources available. SagaciousPhil - Chat 19:24, 13 December 2013 (UTC)
  52. Diannaa Renewal; access would be useful for copyright investigations. Thanks, -- Diannaa (talk) 01:12, 22 December 2013 (UTC)
  53. Quadell (talk · contribs). English Wikipedia. I've been a Wikipedian for nearly eleven years. I am very active in reviewing Good Article nominees, Featured Article candidates, and Articles For Creation. I frequently spot-check sources given by content creators. It would be very useful for me to be able to check sources that HighBeam would provide access to. Quadell (talk) 21:09, 16 December 2013 (UTC)
  54. Ponyo (talk · contribs) My old account has expired and my access to prime library sources has ended; I'd certainly appreciate a renewal in order to carry on with BLP sourcing!--Jezebel'sPonyobons mots 16:41, 21 December 2013 (UTC)
  55. RL0919 (talk · contribs) Over 8 years and more than 21K edits. I've written and expanded a number of articles about people, books, and plays from the 20th century, topics for which HighBeam should have useful source material. I'm long past university, and my local library has several other databases but not HighBeam. --RL0919 (talk) 21:54, 23 December 2013 (UTC)
  56. User:Jack Greenmaven. English wikipedia. I have done a lot of copyediting and created several articles. I have been editing just over three years and have an edit count of 22,000. Greenmaven (talk) 05:53, 28 December 2013 (UTC)
  57. EMP (talk · contribs) Renewal; editing since Sept 2009. I've had Highbeam access for for the past year and have found it most helpful in my research to update and improve multiple articles.EMP (talk) 19:09, 13 January 2014 (UTC)
  58. Michig (talk · contribs) - frustratingly as I was about to use HighBeam to improve an article I find that my account appears to have expired and I'm now asked for payment - renewal would be much appreciated. --Michig (talk) 11:55, 4 January 2014 (UTC)
  59. VVVladimir (talk · contribs) - editing since 2007, mostly in the history and culture of the Balkans. I helped promote several FAs and GAs, and intend to continue this work. Vladimir (talk) 17:38, 9 January 2014 (UTC)
  60. Hobbes Goodyear (talk · contribs) - My initial one-year account has expired--I would like to renew. With Google News archive out of commission, I think that having Highbeam access has become even more important. I just created a new article on a subject where references are tough to come by, and there are two on Highbeam I'd like to include. --Hobbes Goodyear (talk) 13:38, 12 January 2014 (UTC)
  61. EricEnfermero (talk · contribs) - Renewal; on English WP for about two years, >11,000 edits. I focus largely on content creation, particularly related to biographies in sports, psychology and medicine. HighBeam has been helpful in expanding articles, including successful GA nominations. EricEnfermero HOWDY! 05:02, 20 January 2014 (UTC)
  62. Grolltech (talk · contribs) - Renewal; Have enjoyed using HighBeam over the last year, as I have found it to be very useful. I had a whole bunch of articles staged for use – I just added one the night before last, went to bed, but by morning the account had expired. Hoping all of that good research I've accumulated wasn't for naught.  Grollτech (talk) 12:21, 22 January 2014 (UTC)
  63. Jeremy112233 (talk · contribs). English Wikipedia. I have spent 2-3 years editing Wikipedia and focus most of my attention on content generation. All of my reference use full citation information, which helps users to verify the information I add to the encyclopedia even if they do not have access to the pay-site's articles. Most of my articles require a large amount of research as they deal with contemporary issues where the sources I need are often behind paywalls rather than available freely on Google's reference searches like Scholar or News. That said, they just changed the Google News search so the old Archive function is no longer available, providing even less good sources to create articles. My articles are largely on law, medical, or entertainment related people or firms, and Highbeam would make my articles better researched, and allow me to create articles on subjects I may otherwise not be able to. I do not currently have ready access to HighBeam through either a university or a library. Jeremy112233 (talk) 16:39, 24 January 2014 (UTC)
  64. Lwarrenwiki (talk · contribs). English Wikipedia. My first edit was in Aug. 2013, and I have been quite active since then, with over 500 edits. If you have any flexibility in your requirements, I would very much appreciate being able to access your resources with a free account. I am diligent in providing detailed citations to references, and it's clear to me that HighBeam can allow me to provide higher quality in my editing and will greatly enhance my research. My areas of interest are listed at User:Lwarrenwiki, and I have seen that HighBeam covers (for example) major city newspapers with reporting of music-related events, as well as music criticism. I fully expect that I would be using HighBeam regularly for greater quality. I do not have other sources of free access. I respectfully request your approval for a free account. Thanks for your consideration. Lwarrenwiki (talk) 22:51, 27 January 2014 (UTC) - updated 05:17, 28 January 2014 (UTC)
  65. CaroleHenson (talk · contribs) - renewal, per talk. Nikkimaria (talk) 20:20, 31 January 2014 (UTC)
  66. User:Tokyogirl79 - I'm a frequent flier at AfDs and other deletion type scenarios, but I frequently find myself in situations where I need to check older articles that are not visible on the Internet. I edit mostly film and book related articles, but I also edit articles on various other topics that could predate news coverage on the Internet. Tokyogirl79 (。◕‿◕。) 10:38, 27 January 2014 (UTC)
  67. User:Storye book. I've been an editor here for 9 years; I've created over 50 DYK articles including one GA, and a load more of created or expanded articles. A lot of the articles are on buildings, structures and people, plus other historical subjects; all are fully cited. I have contributed over 2000 own-work and archival photographs to WP and Commons, and am listed as an auto-patroller on Commons. I do have access to certain online databases, mainly via my local library membership, but this tends to be limited to UK databases, - so Highbeam, for example, would expand my research worldwide. I'm currently working on an article on a 19-century church, with associated biographical articles, including artists of the Arts and Crafts movement. --Storye book (talk) 09:50, 1 February 2014 (UTC)
  68. TheBigJagielka (talk · contribs) - I've been editing for about four years, I have made many edits and most of my edits are on historical association football competitions. TheBigJagielka (talk) 19:38, 7 October 2013 (UTC)
  69. Bearcat. Active in new article creation and referencing improvements, predominantly in the areas of Canadian politics, LGBT topics and Canadian and international film, TV, music and literature. For a long time I wasn't sure if this project would actually be useful to me or not, but nowadays I quite frequently run into HighBeam previews in the course of trying to track down sources, so I figure I may as well give it a shot. Bearcat (talk) 22:08, 9 February 2014 (UTC)
  70. User:Brianhe. Active Wikimedia project: WikiProject Motorcycling. Have added HighBeam to many articles (with credit of course), my account apparently just expired. HighBeam used for a variety of research on vehicles, biographies and miscellany. -- Brianhe (talk) 06:03, 11 February 2014 (UTC)
  71. User:Kopiersperre. Active Project: de:Wikipedia:Redaktion Chemie. 6000 edits there.--Kopiersperre (talk) 12:07, 14 February 2014 (UTC)
  72. User:Krimuk90. Renewal. I have been the principal contributor to 3 featured articles on Indian film artists. The Highbeam tool enabled me to find a lot of references, something that is otherwise difficult due to limited sources available for older Hindi film articles. A renewal of my account would significantly help me continue editing other film-related articles. Thanks. --krimuk 90 04:04, 20 February 2014 (UTC)
  73. User:Aviados. Renewal (my access expired in 04/2013). I'm a 6-year editor with a significant contribution to the Hebrew Wikipedia. Active mainly in content generation and research. Created and/or substantially contributed to thousands of articles. Aviados (talk) 20:25, 22 February 2014 (UTC)
  74. I had HighBeam access for a year, before my user name change from user:Malleus Fatuorum, and I found it very useful. Eric Corbett 23:12, 8 February 2014 (UTC)
  75. User:TParis, I'd like to work on articles relating to Ford Island.--v/r - TP 21:54, 23 February 2014 (UTC)
  76. Seeking renewal,    C M B J   13:17, 27 February 2014 (UTC)
  77. User:Rhododendrites. English Wikipedia, Commons (but far less frequently). Plenty of experience adding substantial content to articles, checking references, adding references, etc. I'm an active Wikipedia user as well as a grad student researching Wikipedia and encyclopedias. Thanks very much. --— Rhododendrites talk |  02:55, 4 March 2014 (UTC)
  78. User:Gaurav Pruthi Had used Highbeam for citing various articles earlier. Hope to get my subscription renewed.Gaurav Pruthitalk 09:38, 4 March 2014 (UTC)
  79. User:ColonelHenry. Mostly on the English Wikipedia, although I do translate English content into Farsi for that project. As of March 2014, almost 17,000 edits, several FAs and GAs (listed on my userpage), I generally focus on content creation and improvement especially towards articles on poetry, literature, historical biographies, regional history and historical places/landmarks, looking to expand my work into theology and botany. Often I get an odd urge to edit an article I happen to come across randomly, and with access to more tools, I would do that more often. I would be honoured to have access and make good use of it and would gladly help other editors looking for certain journal, newspaper, or other resources.--ColonelHenry (talk) 07:34, 9 March 2014 (UTC)
  80. User:TransporterMan. English Wikipedia. I do dispute resolution and am the second most active volunteer at 3O, the most active at DRN, and a member of the Mediation Committee. Access to sources is useful in sorting out content disputes. This is a renewal application, my prior account having expired some time back and I not realizing that it was possible to so easily renew. — TransporterMan (TALK) 17:11, 13 March 2014 (UTC)
  81. User:Racconish. English and French Wikipedia (where I am an active mediator). Over 48,000 contributions to Wikipedia projects. This is a renewal application. Thanks, — Racconish Tk 18:40, 13 March 2014 (UTC)
  82. User:MrBill3. WP:WikiProject Medicine, WP:WikiProject Citation cleanup, WP:WikiProject Nursing, WP:WikiProject Skepticism. Formatting refs on hundreds of articles, adding archive versions of refs. Adding and improving refs on many articles. Verification of references on many articles. Adding content and refs to a significant number of articles. Top ten contributor to medical articles in 2013. Contribution of content to articles on scientists and skeptics. I am a very active editor. I use the resources I have access to extensively, the addition of HighBeam would help me verify references and improve my ability to contribute content and sources as well as provide sources for existing content. - - MrBill3 (talk) 05:04, 19 March 2014 (UTC)
  83. Dezastru (talk · contribs). English-language Wikipedia editor since January 2012, with 3,000+ edits. Most of my contributions involve American history, politics and current events, and biographies. My local library recently eliminated online access to archived news sources due to budget cuts, which has substantially limited my research options. Dezastru (talk) 17:05, 20 March 2014 (UTC)
  84. User:Shakehandsman Editor since 2006 with over 11,000 edits. Working on Wikiproject British Crime articles including creating a good article almost single handedly. Also work on politics, biographies, and football. I often add refs for unreferenced material. I intend to continue the same work into the future and would really benefit from access to additional sources that Highbeam provides.--Shakehandsman (talk) 08:44, 25 March 2014 (UTC)

  95. Dom497. I have been active since 2011 and have made over 11,000 edits. I work largely with Amusement Park related articles. I used to be able to find news articles through Google Archives which provided articles from almost a decade ago. I used these article to get several roller coaster articles to the GA or FA level. Google has since removed the archive feature and is now hard to find news archives. I've done a few searches on some roller coasters through the database (you search without an account, just can't read them) and found lots of articles that would really help.--Dom497 (talk) 18:56, 28 April 2014 (UTC)

  118. User:JonRichfield. In the past four years or so I have done well over 3000 edits, and a fair proportion of my work has been on articles that I initiated. Most of the topics that I deal with are substantial, plus many RFCs (no groupie celeb touting for example). Most of my work is in a wide range of scientific and technical matters, particularly biological and computing, though I deal with a certain amount of historical and philological material as well. I am not familiar with HighBeam resources, but it sounds extremely valuable for some kinds of data search for up-to date citable material. A good proportion of my work is in dealing with "citation wanted" texts, so my requirements for reputable citations is atypically high. I am retired and cannot often reach the local university libraries and it is not clear to me that the HighBeam resources would be available there even if I could. I do not apply for any material benefit to myself nor to any third party, commercial or otherwise. In short, if I find that HighBeam resources are appropriate to my work, I not only would be able to put them to good use, but would in the process be publicising their value in good faith and without reducing their market value. I remark that I am thoroughly aware of my responsibilities in protecting the interests of the publisher. Thank you for your attention. JonRichfield (talk) 20:02, 29 April 2014 (UTC)

I've predominantly been working on Australian related articles, covering topics such as Australian musical groups, Australian comic book artists, Australian architecture/heritage buildings and Australian architects. Numerous times I've been frustrated at the lack of credible and reliable sources to cite in articles, particularly newspaper references which can only be accessed with a Highbeam account. Having readily available access to Highbeam would enable me to verify numerous known but un-cited facts in many of the articles I've edited or would like to create.Dan arndt (talk) 13:56, 30 April 2014 (UTC)

I have paid access to The New York Times, The Economist, and Foreign Affairs. Better access to research materials would greatly strengthen my ability to contribute well cited Wikipedia content. I worked as a journalist and documentarist for many years. I no longer have access to a broad range of research tools. Though I live in a major metropolitan area, my local library is very small, and I have no access to academic libraries.

Being a long-time proponent of the idea of building and sharing knowledge, I'm contributing to (mostly the English and German) Wikipedia since 2006, and since 2010 under this account, which has accumulated 19,000+ edits meanwhile. I have a broad scope of interests from arts, music, literature (passive and active) to philosophy, ecology, geology, journalism to various fields of sciences and technology. Professionally, I'm into hardware and software research & development. Therefore my main areas of expertise and consequently of activity here evolve around topics of computer sciences, electrical engineering, physics, and photography, including many history of technology themes, which I find particularly important to preserve for generations to come. While I have a large personal archive/library myself, it is still sometimes difficult to find suitable references, in particular for older and more special stuff. I am not familiar with HighBeam yet, but it sounds like it could help to conveniently fill this gap, therefore I apply. --Matthiaspaul (talk) 19:48, 4 May 2014 (UTC)

I write articles on plants, animals, and locations in the Pacific region and notable deceased Americans. I intend to continue a similar pattern of editing. Access to Highbeam would help me because it's difficult to find reliable sources on some of the topics and the libraries in Fiji, where I live, are difficult to access and not well stocked.

  160. Edward321 (talk · contribs) I have been on Wikipedia since 2006 and have over 22,000 edits. While recent edits have been largely verification, I would add more content if allowed to use Highbeam. My areas of interest are history and historical biography, with specific interest in 15th Century Europe and western Asia, as well as the mid-19th century. Edward321 (talk) 00:15, 7 May 2014 (UTC)
  161. Star Mississippi (talk · contribs) user and admin. I work most frequently in museums and historic sites, whose values are frequently discussed behind scholarly paywalls. StarM 02:38, 7 May 2014 (UTC)
  162. Patrickneil (talk · contribs) since 2005 I've used High Beam for its historic articles, often to source topics like sports or academics from before 1980. Just this week I found an article from 1906 that I could only see a summary of, but might be able to get the full text with High Beam.-- Patrick, oѺ 14:53, 7 May 2014 (UTC)
  163. Atama (talk · contribs) User and administrator, editing since 2006 and an admin since 2009. My interests vary widely, I often get involved at articles where there is a dispute or some other controversy. HighBeam's articles make it easier to find sources for articles when I'm trying to determine if they are eligible for deletion (through WP:PROD usually, but I do WP:AFD discussions on occasion). I also help out with conflicts of interest issues (especially at WP:COIN) and being able to find independent sources can be challenging. -- Atama 21:04, 7 May 2014 (UTC)
  164. Mike Searson (talk · contribs) User and coordinator of the knives and firearms projects. I have been active since 2006 and have 26000 edits. I am always looking for high quality source material.--Mike - Μολὼν λαβέ 22:49, 7 May 2014 (UTC)
  165. GaryColemanFan (talk · contribs) Editor for 7 years with just under 20,000 edits. I have been primarily active in professional wrestling, with quite a few edits to other topics. In wrestling, it can be hard to find reliable sources, so this would be a very valuable resource. I would also like to expand into some baseball biographies and would find this a very helpful resource. GaryColemanFan (talk) 05:44, 8 May 2014 (UTC)
  166. ChrisGualtieri (talk · contribs) 440,000+ edits, 40+ GAs - High Beam would be great for gathering more information on historic properties. Previously used it to add many citations and built out some key pages through its sources. ChrisGualtieri (talk) 02:18, 9 May 2014 (UTC)
  167. Kmzayeem (talk · contribs) I have been editing in Wikipedia since May 2012 and made over 9000 edits so far with almost 80% of them being in the mainspace. My prime interests have been the articles related to culture, arts, music, history and economy of Bangladesh and South Asia in general. Apart from content creation, I have actively participated in the verification of numerous existing articles as well as saving several articles from deletion. A free access to Highbeam's online resources would help me a lot to do the works more effectively.--Zayeem (talk) 08:30, 9 May 2014 (UTC)
  168. Fleetham (talk · contribs). Most active writing about Chinese car firms but also have an interested in economic- and foreign policy-related pages.

  170. Ἀλήθεια (talk · contribs) I have been an editor for more than 6 years with over 1,100 edits int he mainspace. I am actively involved in creating pages for notable theologians and biblical scholars. Since many of these people pre-date the internet, a lot of this information is locked away in academic journals. Having access to Highbeam would help locate better sources.

  171. Ehrentitle (talk · contribs) I have been on Wikipedia since 2005 and currently have nearly 2000 edits and created two dozen articles globally over all the wikis.

  172. Pokey5945 (talk · contribs) I have over a thousand edits since 2005 (and more under my previous user name). My Wikipedia work focuses mainly on American social movements and their leaders, some music articles, and various other random articles that catch my interest. I've created five articles across my two user names. Highbeam is a first-rate source for accessing journalistic and scholarly sources, and would be very useful in my editing endeavors.Pokey5945 (talk) 20:10, 9 May 2014 (UTC)
  173. Coretheapple (talk · contribs) I have over 8,000 edits in my two or so years at the project and have eclectic interests, ranging from the Chicano labor movement to early Broadway theater. Until recently I had ProQuest access and was happy as a stuck pig. Without it I could not have created Johnny Broderick. But that has ended so I now drift forlornly through the Internet, which inevitably fails me as much of what I seek is pre-Internet. HighBeam would be tremendously useful in my content endeavors.

  174. Iñaki LL (talk · contribs) Hi, I am an English wikipedia editor, occasionally on the Basque, French and Spanish ones also. Editor since January 2008 with 3,300 edits. I work on areas related to Basque language, culture, geography, and history—text, pictures, and maps. I also have a handful of worldwide and Basque specific pictures uploaded in wikicommons. I find little on English sources related to these topics, and often based on Spanish references. A good part of my contribution so far came down to bridging information gaps and fixing inaccuracies. While I have attempted to gain access to English language journals, I find many or most of the papers are (frustratingly) restricted. Iñaki LL (talk) 10:24, 10 May 2014 (UTC)

I routinely read/check references to verify that article text is consistent with the cited reference. I also perform a considerable amount of citation data verification (i.e. citations accurately describe the reference in a way that allows a reader to obtain the reference for verification.

  182. Madalibi (talk · contribs) – I have over 11,000 edits on Wikipedia since 2008, mostly on East Asia. I lost access to all databases when I finished my PhD in 2010, and I have lived in China ever since, far away from accessible libraries. I buy a lot of books, but sorely lack access to academic journals, newspapers, and magazines. I would use the Highbeam database to find reliable content and keep building articles that last. Madalibi (talk) 13:49, 13 May 2014 (UTC)
  183. Judae1 (talk · contribs): I am an active editor and I enjoy research, and tend to look for references to enhance wiki articles in need of assistance. Access to this would be helpful to see the full articles and not just the initial graph to see whether it is a valid source for an article. Juda S. Engelmayer (talk) 18:26, 13 May 2014 (UTC)

  191. Carlstak (talk · contribs) I've made over 6,000 edits since August 2011 and have created about 15 articles, including some quite long ones, on historical subjects and biographies. I am especially interested in Spanish subjects, and in translating articles from the Spanish, Catalan, and Portuguese Wikipedias. I also spend much time adding quality sources to articles. Highbeam's resources would be very useful to my research. Carlstak (talk) 00:16, 12 June 2014 (UTC)
  192. Oceanflynn (talk · contribs): I've made 6925 edits in 5 projects since 2006. I often contribute to articles related to Canada, including Canadian history, First Nations, human geography, physical geography, etc. I created articles such as Caribou and Boreal woodland caribou in 2013. (There was an attempt at creating an article entitled caribou, years ago but it had been merged with Reindeer which then became overburdened with North American content. The article I created included much content, some new images and many new references with inline citations.) Because of paywalls. etc, I am often unable to access robust online references that would be invaluable in a Wikipedia article to which I am contributing.

  203. Dream Focus I used my Highbeam account quite a lot when I had it previously, before it ran out. I would like to have that sort of access again to be able to reference articles in need, as I did quite a lot of before. I have edited Wikipedia for 7 years, 11 months and made over 26,000 edits.

  204. These days I've been mostly writing articles about topics of local historical interest. Having access to old newspapers would greatly help me out with this. If given access I would also be willing to be active on Resource Exchange. (Since everyone else is giving it, I've been an editor for about 7 years now, my edit count isn't high, though high enough for the requirements, but I do a lot of public outreach these days). Just recently I had a new Wikipedian ask me to help him verify a paywalled resource. I would love to be able to check Highbeam for these sorts of things as well.
