(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!

South Atlantic track map???[edit]

You make cyclone tracks right? So is a track map necessary to the article: South Atlantic tropical cyclone? I mean like a season summary track map like all other basins which includes all storm tracks? Typhoon2013 (talk) 04:14, 3 August 2015 (UTC)

I have a question ?[edit]

Why don't tropical cyclones regularly form in the South Atlantic and South-east Pacific ? What makes it different from the South-west Pacific and South Indian oceans in that regard? Thanks!Final-Fantasy-HH (talk) 13:21, 5 August 2015 (UTC)

This is a tricky question to answer late at night so i wish to take time to consider my response, but first of all can you please define what you consider to be the South-West and South-East Pacific basins in terms of longitude.Jason Rees (talk) 22:12, 6 August 2015 (UTC)
Yes... South-East Pacific is western ocean regions of Chile and Peru. I checked in Global tropical cyclone tracks and have not seen yet a tropical cyclone in this region and South Atlantic (excepted cyclone Catarina 2004).Final-Fantasy-HH (talk) 11:58, 7 August 2015 (UTC)
Ok I wanted to check your thinking before i answered since i consider the Eastern Pacific to be the International Dateline (180) to America, while RSMC Nadi's basin is 160E to 120W. To the best of my knowledge conditions in the Southeast Pacific, closer to South America, are climatologically unfavorable for tropical cyclone development. The Peru/Chile current continuously brings cooler waters to the region which inhibits warm-core cyclones from forming. During El Nino years though you may find the odd system developing to the east of 120W but these would not be formallly named.Jason Rees (talk) 15:59, 7 August 2015 (UTC)
Thanks you very much. Final-Fantasy-HH (talk) 19:13, 7 August 2015 (UTC)
