The quest for get Wikipedia editors the sources they need is gaining momentum.  
Here's what's happening and what you can sign up for ''right now'':


* '''[[WP:Credo|Credo Reference]]''' provides full-text online versions of 
nearly 1200 published reference works from more than 70 publishers in every 
major subject, including general and subject dictionaries and encyclopedias.  
There are '''125''' full Credo 350 accounts available, with access even to 100 
more references works than in Credo's original donation.  All you need is a 
1-year old account with 1000 edits.  Sign up [[Wikipedia:Credo#Sign-up 
sheet|here]].
* '''[[WP:HighBeam|HighBeam Research]]''' has access to over 80 million 
articles from 6,500 publications including newspapers, magazines, academic 
journals, newswires, trade magazines and encyclopedias.  Thousands of new

In addition to these great partnerships, you might be interested in the 
next-generation idea to create a central '''Wikipedia Library''' where approved 
editors would have access to ''all'' participating resource donors.  It's still 
in the preliminary stages, but if you like the idea, add your feedback to the 
[http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikimedia_Fellowships/Project_Ideas/The_Wikipedia_Library
 Community Fellowship proposal] to start developing the project.  Drop by my 
talk page if you have any questions.  Now, go sign up!
