Each year the Wikipedia Library team, in collaboration with GLAM folks (Galleries, Libraries, Archives & Museums) all around the world, asks a simple favor: Give Wikipedia the gift of a citation for its birthday.
Website: http://1lib1ref.org This year Wikipedia turns 17 and it's our third annual #1Lib1Ref campaign. The 20-day campaign is now in its second week... What's happened so far? Across the languages we are tracking, editors have added 2097 citations in 21+ languages. 5 languages have made over 100 edits: English, French, Hebrew, Serbian and Catalan. View contributions by language: https://twitter.com/WikiLibrary/status/955590632545726464 On social media #1Lib1Ref is a hype-machine. 37 countries have made 2260 Twitter posts reaching 4.4 million potential readers 8.1 million times. We invited librarians (and library-lovers) around the world to participate. Our Wikimedia Blog post, written by #1Lib1Ref originator and GLAM Strategist Alex Stinson, set the tone and made the case: Read blog: https://blog.wikimedia.org/2018/01/16/1lib1ref-2018/ The blog included a visual 'explainer' video created by Wikipedia Library team member Felix Nartey, narrated by famous U.S. Librarian Jessamyn West.

It's an exciting part of our work and we're very thankful to everyone who adds to its impact and success! Join in. Make an edit. Teach someone how to add a citation. Share something nice about the campaign this week in your social media circles. Help share free knowledge. #1Lib1Ref. Pass it on...
