Expanding an idea by fonzy, I have created a skeleton for Wikipedians to
organize the sharing of information from proprietary resources. See
The current text that is there:
This page is a reference for Wikipedians in need of certain proprietary
information resources (encyclopedias, CD-ROM archives, expensive books
etc.). The page has a section of resources that are offered and one of
resources that are wanted. These sections are separated into subsections
for specific resource types.
Feel free to offer any type of resource, but please understand that this
page is not intended to facilitate copyright violation -- "shared
resource" implies that you are willing to make use of that resource for
someone else, in your own time. Please provide as much detail as possible
* version of the resource
* storage form of the resource (paper, CD-ROM, online archive etc.)
It is assumed that these resources are available to you for free or that
you are willing to cover any costs. Users should note that these shared
usage offers, unless otherwise noted, are only valid for Wikipedia
Please add your own resources in the appropriate section.
