The Wikipedia Library

The Wikipedia Library is an open research hub, a place for active Wikipedia editors to gain access to the vital reliable sources that they need to do their work and to be supported in using those resources to improve the encyclopedia. We aim to make access and use of sources free, easy, collaborative and efficient.

The Wikipedia Library is run by a team of Wikimedia Foundation staff and global volunteers.

What we do[edit]

Database access: Arrange donations of free access to paywalled resources which editors can sign up for.

Source sharing: Create resource sharing pages where editors can request a source from other editors.

How you can get involved[edit]
