Wikipedia Library Program Expands With More Accounts From JSTOR, Credo, and Other Database Providers
From The Signpost:
Multiple new account signups for Wikimedia content creators have opened up courtesy of The Wikipedia Library.
Chief among these is an expansion in the JSTOR program, adding an additional 400 accounts. Interest in the program is at (as of publishing time) 367 accounts, with requests dating to 2012, when a partnership providing 100 accounts was first announced.
Credo Reference has given an extra 200 accounts.
New entries to the Library include the British Newspaper Archive, which has digitized a large number of British and Irish newspapers from the 18th through early 20th century, and Keesings World News Archives, which has in-house summaries of many of the world’s events since 1931.
The Library is also offering a new intern position, where students will be hired by partner libraries to create content with the resources available to them at the partner.
