Imagine a World where Every Librarian Added One More Reference to Wikipedia.
Twice per year, #1Lib1Ref — abbreviated for one librarian, one reference — calls on librarians around the world, and anyone who has a passion for free knowledge, to add missing references to articles on Wikipedia.
Wikipedia is one of the first stops for readers and researchers. It’s an especially important resource now, during COVID-19 when people are increasingly turning to the platform for trustworthy, unbiased, and up-to-date information.
From the 15th of January to 5th February 2022, join contributors all around the world as we add missing references on Wikipedia. Join us to help improve the quality of content on Wikipedia for the billions of people staying at home during this public health crisis.
Your goal is to add at least one reference to Wikipedia! Any citation to a reliable source is a benefit to Wikipedia readers worldwide. When you edit, make sure to include the hashtag #1Lib1Ref in the edit summary.
Participate in the #1Lib1Ref campaign and win amazing souvenirs.
You can join the campaign by creating new articles, adding references, uploading images and videos or by ‘destubbing’. Check our FAQ for more information
We would love to hear from you.
