In this issue we highlight a new partnership on the Library Card platform, and, as always, a roundup of news and community items related to libraries and digital knowledge.

New partnership[edit]

The Wikipedia Library is announcing signups today for free, full-access, accounts for a new partner:

  • Taxmann – a publisher of resources related to taxation and corporate law.

Other partnerships with accounts available are listed on our partners page.

WikiCite[edit]

The WikiCite 2020 Virtual Conference, which ran from 26 to 28 October, is a series of presentations and workshops related to open citations and linked bibliographic data. This year's iteration, an online-only event due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, included a section on librarianship and scholarly communication. You can see the program and recordings of the session at the virtual conference page.

1Lib1Ref[edit]

Mark your calendars: 1Lib1Ref returns from 15 January to 5 February 2021. You can participate by adding a citation to Wikipedia to improve the quality and reliability for all. In light of the pandemic, we strongly encourage virtual activities and advise everyone to follow the WHO health guidelines. You can join the 1Lib1Ref community via the Libraries (libraries@lists.wikimedia.org), and 1Lib1Ref (1lib1ref@lists.wikimedia.org) mailing lists, or by joining the Wikimedia and Libraries User Group.
