Sorry for cross posting.

Hi everyone,

HighBeam is offering free accounts for Wikipedians with an account for
one year and 1000 edits. So far only about 300 people have applied and
they have 1,000 slots. HighBeam is a paid newspaper and journal
resource, and as a researcher, even I don't have access to it, so I was
happy to see this opportunity.

And if you don't have the right amount of edits, you can have your
Wikipedian friends find things for you ;-)

See below!

1000 free accounts are available from the internet research database,
HighBeam Research. HighBeam has full versions of tens of millions of
newspaper articles and journals and should be a big help in adding
reliable sources--especially older and paywalled ones--into the
encyclopedia. Sign-ups require a 1-year old account with 1000 edits on
any Wikipedia. Here's the link to the project page: (account sign-ups are linked in the box on
the right). Sign-up! And, please tell your Wikipedia-friends about the
opportunity! Cheers, Ocaasi
