This project aims to coordinate the sharing of resources between the Pritzker Military Museum & Library and the Wikimedia community. The Pritzker Military Museum & Library's mission aligns closely with Wikipedia’s goal to provide "free access to the sum of all human knowledge." The Museum and Library's collections covers all branches of the United States military from the colonial era to the present. The collections focus on the concept of the Citizen Soldier as an important element in a democratic society.[1]
