> Hey #1lib1ref organizers, WikiLibrarians and GLAM-Wiki enthusiasts,
> We wanted to send a brief update on how the campaign is going:
> As of writing the email, the campaign has tracked over 1930
> by 392 contributos in 1332 articles in 15 different languages
> (remember we
> expect we are missing 1/4-1/2 of contributions that don't use the
> This well surpasses our [https://meta.wikimedia.org/
> wiki/The_Wikipedia_Library/1Lib1Ref/Lessons contributions from last
> and we still have another week and a half to go! We published a brief
> update blog at https://blog.wikimedia.org/2017/01/24/1lib1ref-first-
> week-highlights/ to highlight these accomplishments.
> We have seen a slightly smaller amount of blogging and newsletters as
> of the Campaign this year. We think this may be in part, because the
> campaign is less novel and in part because of the broad number of
> distractions in the press at the moment (we actually think this means

> sure to share them at:
> We are testing a Central Notice Banner, to encourage Wikimedians to go
> to their librarians about #1lib1ref. So far we have seen pageview
> from Wikipedians, but it is not clear how much that will transfer into
> activity. We have yet to see a social media boost or huge boost in
> participation using the hashtag. If you want to try the banner in your
> language, instructions are below 
> We could still use your help reminding librarians in your context to
> participate! Something as simple as visiting your library and showing
> librarians how to add a citation to Wikipedia, or sending an email to
> local library organiziations, would be awesome. Sharing in digital
> communications attracts some participants to the campaign, but we also
> that many of participants are encouraged by friends, peers, colleagues
> patrons to participate.
> We look forward to seeing what other activities events emerge this
> year. If
> you need help, make sure to contact the Wikipedia Library team.
> Keep up the energy through February 3!
