Jake Orlowitz
*Books and Bytes*

Welcome to the inaugural edition of *Books and Bytes*, The Wikipedia
Library's monthly newsletter. The Wikipedia Library is an open research hub
for connecting libraries to Wikipedia and encyclopedia editors back to
libraries and reliable sources.

There's lots of news this month for The Wikipedia Library, including new
accounts, upcoming events, and new ways to get involved:


*New positions: Sign up to be a Wikipedia Visiting Scholar, or a Volunteer
Wikipedia Librarian

*Wikipedia Loves Libraries: Off to a roaring start this fall in the United
States: 29 events are planned or have been hosted.

*New subscription donations: Cochrane round 2; HighBeam round 8; Questia
round 4... Can we partner with NY Times and Lexis-Nexis??

*New ideas:  OCLC innovations in the works; VisualEditor Reference Dialog
Workshop; a photo contest idea emerges

* News from the library world: Wikipedian joins the National Archives full
time; the Getty Museum releases 4,500 images; CERN goes CC-BY

* Announcing WikiProject Open:'''  WikiProject Open kicked off in October,
with several brainstorming and co-working sessions

* New ways to get involved: Free accounts, user profiles, subject guides;
room for library expansion and exploration
