Position announcement: Wikipedia Affiliate

In conjunction with The Wikipedia Library project, the University of California, Riverside (UCR) Libraries are seeking applicants for a “Wikipedia Affiliate.”

This is an unpaid, year-long, remote research position beginning May 1, 2014 and ending April 30, 2015 that entitles the affiliate to full library privileges at the UCR Libraries, including VPN access to the majority of the online materials to which the UCR Libraries subscribe: more than 600 databases, and thousands of scholarly journals, mainstream periodicals, and ebooks.

The position is designed to give research library access to a Wikipedia editor who does not currently have such access or who has only limited access to scholarly resources: the purpose of the position is to help improve Wikipedia’s reliability and accuracy by providing Wikipedia editors with access to the best scholarly information resources while providing a model for other universities to do likewise.

To apply, see the complete position announcement and application instructions.  The application deadline is April 10, 2014.
