It is natural for some Wikiversity participants look to Wikibooks for online textbooks. It is natural for some Wikiversity projects to contribute to the development and improvement of textbooks. This does not mean that the Wikibooks and Wikiversity projects are in competition or in a state of conflict. It simply means that some Wikiversity Learning Projects will lead to improvements in textbooks at Wikibooks and some Wikiversity participants will make use of textbooks at Wikibooks to facilitate the attainment of their educational goals. This synergy is a win-win situation for Wikiversity and Wikibooks. There should be links from Wikiversity to every textbook at Wikibooks and a standing invitation for Wikiversity participants to both use and help improve those textbooks.

Template for linking a Wikibooks textbook module to a Wikiversity project


This template can be added to a Wikipedia article in order to inform Wikipedia users that a Wikiverity project exists that might be of interest to readers of that Wikipedia article.


note: this template automatically inserts the name of the page where the template is included (example to right). The template call should include the page name of the project: {{WikiversityInterWikiLink|Wiki 101}}
