  • Alterego 21:51, Jun 25, 2005 (UTC)
  • Badbilltucker Back in college, I had a work-study job as a library assistant and I know how difficult it can be. Knowing how difficult wikipedia is, I salute and will do what I can to assist them in their efforts here. ] 13:30, 6 September 2006 (UTC)

  • Ellbeecee - Currently an academic librarian in Ohio, but I've accepted a new position in another state and will be moving this summer. I've not created any articles as yet, but I've got a couple in mind. Most of my contributions to Wikipedia to date include minor grammar/spelling fixes and recent changes patrolling for vandalism. I just came across this portal recently and had to join. Ellbeecee 12:26, 19 April 2007 (UTC)
  • GUllman - Reference librarian at a U.S. public library. I've been contributing to Wikipedia since its second year, and have created such (hopefully useful) articles and projects as Library reference desk, List of books, Lists of articles by category, Wikipedia:Library and Information Science basic topics, and Wikipedia:WikiProject Books. Biggest pet peeve: enthusiastic contributors in other fields are cranking out lots of featured articles, but librarians are not writing about library science and research methodology. It becomes a circular argument that most librarians don't regard Wikipedia very highly and join us when they see the quality of articles in their own field.

  • Mtindia 23:29, 5 February 2006 (UTC) This section is a place where I easily visualize the credibility of the members. This, contrasts, directly with invisible colleagues in other sections of Wiki (who wish to remain anonymous). Members in this section must be congratulated for their authority as they continue to contribute to the area of middleware and facilitate building better methods of knowledge organization. I, as a librarian, like to call this process as information visualization.
