Join #1Lib1Ref 2021: Celebrating citations at the heart of Wikipedia

 

The 2021 #Lib1Ref campaign is the sixth iteration of a campaign calling on librarians and knowledge advocates from around the world to add a single reference to Wikipedia, helping make the encyclopedia more reliable and useful.

The campaign runs twice per year: First, from 15 January through 5 February, and later in the year from 15 May to 5 June.

The act of writing Wikipedia is a group effort. The more people and perspectives that contribute to an article, the stronger it becomes. Wikipedia’s vast repository of information beginswith a human seeing a gap, then researching, adding a statement, and adding a citation. That seemingly small act of reading, summarizing, and attributing a source for knowledge is at the heart of the human learning experience that drives Wikipedia.

As we celebrate Wikipedia’s 20th birthday and the people who make it possible, it is important to remember how integral libraries and librarians have been to helping the world do the same act that is involved on Wikipedia: asking key questions about what knowledge needs to be shared, seeking expert information to help us understand it and give context, and making it available to the world. Especially in a world facing uncertainty around a global health crisis, this important act of sharing the right information at the right time in a public forum makes us all stronger.

The annual «One Librarian, One Reference» (#1Lib1Ref) initiative is an opportunity for communities around the world to celebrate the unique and invaluable overlap of libraries and Wikipedia. This year, communities in Africa, Western Europe, North America, Central and Eastern Europe, and many other parts of the world are going to be celebrating. You can help us do that too by adding a single (or several) missing citations to Wikipedia articles.

One of the best birthday gifts for Wikipedia is your time helping to improve it.

Last year, #1Lib1Ref participants added 18,032 citations across over 60 languages – making more trustworthy, neutral information available at a time when it is needed most. We hope you will help us build on these efforts by joining #1Lib1Ref this year.

Participating is simple:

  1. Find an article that needs a citation, using Citation Hunt or any other preferred means.
  2. Find a reliable source that can support that article.
  3. Add a citation using referencing tools.
  4. Add the project hashtag #1Lib1Ref in the article’s edit summary.
  5. Share your edit(s) on social media and invite others to participate!
