getting the word out.
Comments and suggestions on how to improve it or on how to start
corresponding projects on Commons or in other Wikipedia (or even
Wikisource) languages would be most welcome.
Thanks and cheers,

I work for OCLC, a non profit that works with libraries to make library
collections and services more accessible. This summer, we will be hosting a
Wikipedian in Residence. Although the most important qualification for a
candidate is being an established Wikipedian and someone who can
communicate with others about their passion for Wikipedia, a candidate who
is also an early career archivist or librarian would be ideal! Please check
out the position description and let me know if you have any questions!
Please feel free to forward. ****
