|Invitation to join GLAM-Wiki US|
Hello! This WikiProject aligns closely with the work of the GLAM-Wiki initiative (Galleries, Libraries, Archives, and Museums), a global community of volunteers who assist cultural institutions with sharing resources with Wikimedia. GLAM-Wiki US is a new community initiative focused on organizing cultural collaborations within the United States. GLAM organizations are diverse and span numerous topics, from libraries and art museums to science centers and historic sites. We currently have a backlog of interested institutions- and we need your help!
Are you interested in helping with current or future GLAM projects? Join→
I have (with the help of others) made a small user script to detect and highlight various links to unreliable sources and predatory journals. Some of you may already be familiar with it, given it is currently the 39th most imported script on Wikipedia. The idea is that it takes something like
- John Smith "
Article of things" Deprecated.com. Accessed 2020-02-14. (
John Smith "[https://www.deprecated.com/article Article of things]" ''Deprecated.com''. Accessed 2020-02-14.)
and turns it into something like
- John Smith " Article of things" Deprecated.com. Accessed 2020-02-14.
The script is mostly based on WP:RSPSOURCES, WP:NPPSG and WP:CITEWATCH and a good dose of common sense. I'm always expanding coverage and tweaking the script's logic, so general feedback and suggestions to expand coverage to other unreliable sources are always welcomed.
Do note that this is not a script to be mindlessly used, and several caveats apply. Details and instructions are available at User:Headbomb/unreliable. Questions, comments and requests can be made at User talk:Headbomb/unreliable.
I have been tidying up this WikiProject as some links had rotten/ added in some new features to help navigate the scope of content. Hope it helps us on our journeys :D Jamzze ( talk) 21:43, 18 May 2022 (UTC)
Just out in the current "Signpost", at Wikipedia:Wikipedia Signpost/2022-08-31/Serendipity (permalink) is article "Two photos of every library on earth" by User:Smallbones. With lots of nice photos and some plans. Discussion comments are welcome there. -- Doncram ( talk) 00:22, 1 September 2022 (UTC)
- I just read the article. Would anyone be interested in a subproject equivalent to w:es:Wikiproyecto:Bibliotecología/Ninguna biblioteca sin fotografía (no library without photos)? Or is it better kept separate, since it intersects with architecture and photography? ⁓ Pelagic ( messages ) 11:56, 3 September 2022 (UTC)
Hello can see the draft: Albertson Public Library has seen some declines due to "only local sources". Any tips or guidance on what makes an acceptable, good or great library building article? Would be great to support editors like this Rhagfyr ( talk) 20:00, 19 September 2022 (UTC)
