Through the Wikipedia Visiting Scholars program, experienced Wikipedia editors gain remote access to library resources like databases, ebooks, and special collections. Scholars use the research materials to improve Wikipedia articles in one or more of the university's topic areas of specialization. In doing so, libraries expand the impact of their collections while contributing to public knowledge. Scholars and sponsoring universities agree upon a fixed term, usually 1 year, and specific or general goals for the Scholar, such as number of articles to work on or to improve to a particular level of quality.
Wikipedia Visiting Scholars is a program developed by The Wikipedia Library and administered in the United States and Canada by the Wiki Education Foundation. If you have questions, leave a message on the talk page or reach out to User:Ryan (Wiki Ed).
