Welcome to WikiProject Wikipedia-Books. This is a collaboration dedicated to improving Wikipedia's coverage and documentation of Wikipedia-Books (from now on, simply 'books'); as well as to improve and maintain the organization of book, books-related categories, and books-related templates; and help people on everything related to books (writing advice, template advice, bugs in the software, and so on). If you would like to help, please join the project, check out the talk page once in a while (or watch it) and see the to-do list below. Other WikiProjects can help by adding the book-class to their Project's banner (see the how-to guide).

Scope & Goals[edit]

This WikiProject aims to help users write Wikipedia-Books, and guide the use of the Wikipedia-Books tools, the Wikipedia:Books page and subpages.

The core of the project is all the pages in the Book namespace (i.e. pages that start with Book:...), and any category or template that deal with these pages. Also concerned are the pages related to the book tool.

Publishing Wikipedia Books[edit]

In the long run we hope to have books that are good enough to be traditionally published. That means they would get an ISBN, be available in stores, both online and offline, etc...

If you're interested in helping with this goal, please also visit the Publishing Wikipedia Books subproject.
