Campaign #1Lib1Ref ("One Librarian - One Reference") has been traditionally held worldwide in January for a number of years, with the support of Wikimedia organizations and hundreds of librarians.

In 2018 #1Lib1Ref runs from January 15 to February 3 and for the first time this year it is also held in Russia, where it is organized by "Wikimedia RU".


There are quite a lot of notices of missing references in Wikipedias and only in the Russian Wikipedia they are noted in 35 992 articles. The work of factchecking is constantly underway, but the help of librarians who have access to rare books is extremely needed!
