We'd love to help you get involved, Get in touch!
This year the organisation of #1Lib1Ref is led by a Global Team of ambassadors, champions and amplifiers. These categories of support are to ensure that each volunteer is able to tie in their available times and levels of commitment towards supporting the campaign. You can reach the global team by sending an email or joining the mailing list (1lib1reflists.wikimedia.org).
- Ambassadors - The core organizers: Experienced community leaders who have organized a 1Lib1Ref activity before, and are willing to mentor, inspire and provide support to other participants who want to participate or host events as part of the #1Lib1Ref campaign.
- Champions - Institutional advocates: Avid volunteers who want to enlist new librarians and libraries while encouraging their institutions to promote and participate in the campaign.
- Amplifiers - Social networkers: Visible voices who want to spread the word about 1Lib1Ref and are eager to publicize it before, during and after the campaign.
