Dear Librarians and Library Workers,

We would love to have you participate in Wikipedia’s upcoming #1lib1ref
campaign, happening January 15th through February 3, 2018 during
Wikipedia's sixteenth birthday.

The general idea is simple: *Imagine a World where Every Librarian Adds One
More Reference to Wikipedia*. If every librarian in the world added one
citation to Wikipedia, Wikipedia wouldn’t have any more [citation needed]

Libraries are fundamental allies to Wikipedia’s mission: collecting and
disseminating the sum of all knowledge. Wikipedia editors have been
engaging their local libraries as part of the Wikimedia movement's
<https://outreach.wikimedia.org/wiki/GLAM>GLAM (Galleries, Libraries,
Archives and Museums) outreach strategy and #1Lib1Ref is part of that.

Getting involved can be as simple as committing to add a citation to
Wikipedia--you can use our Citation Hunt tool to simplify this process--or
hosting a Coffee Hour, edit-a-thon, or other event at your library. We are
also always looking for people to assist us with translation, publicity, or
just general enthusiasm for helping improve Wikipedia.

Add the #1Lib1Ref hashtag to your edits and we can track participation.
Grab yourself a #1Lib1Ref userbox for your Wikipedia page.
