Librarians and library lovers,

From *January 15th to February 5th* we will be joining together around the
world to make Wikipedia more reliable. You can participate in *#1Lib1Ref *by
simply adding a citation to Wikipedia's content!

That's all we ask and imagine: a world in which every librarian (or
archivist, reference professional, and scholar) adds 1 more reference to
Wikipedia. This is the fifth year of the #1Lib1Ref campaign and we couldn’t
be more excited to support another year of activities.

Full resources and guides for participating are available on the campaign
website <> (

If you are planning to host a coffee hour
or a edit-a-thon focused on #1Lib1Ref, and you need funding for the event,
you will be able to apply for a Rapid Grant
<>. For the best chance
of approval, requests should be made in the month of November, since
requests related to #1Lib1Ref will be given priority by the Grants team
during November.

You can make sure your contribution is counted by using the Program and
Events Dashboard for your event, institution, or region, and using the
hashtag in your edit summary. Login to start a new event or join an
existing one for the January campaign here:

Please tell your library and library-loving friends about #1Lib1Ref in
January. We need everyone's help to make Wikipedia more reliable!

You can join the 1Lib1Ref community via the Libraries (, and 1Lib1Ref (
mailing lists, or by joining the Wikimedia + Libraries User Group:
