Application Review
With regard to Wikipedia Library User Group's application for user group status and criteria:
  • At least 3 active Wikimedia editors: CRITERION MET
  • Focus advances Wikimedia: CRITERION MET
  • Mission aligned with Wikimedia Foundation: CRITERION MET
  • Compliance with naming guidelines and trademark policy: CRITERION MET
  • Information about group published on a Wikimedia wiki: CRITERION MET
  • Plans for activities or efforts to advance Wikimedia projects: CRITERION MET
  • Allows new members: CRITERION MET
  • Two designated contacts for Wikimedia Foundation: CRITERION MET
Based on this review I would like to approve Wikipedia Library User Group’s application and grant them user group status for one year. If there are no concerns or objections, I will move forward with this action Tuesday, May 23, 2017, after a 72 hour window for AffCom members to raise potential concerns or objections.
It is the opinion of the Affiliations Committee that the group meets the requirements for Wikimedia User Group status.
Therefore be it resolved that Wikipedia Library User Group is recognized as a Wikimedia User Group for a one-year, renewable period, effective on 8 June 2017.
