#1lib1ref New Hampshire

The Wikipedia #1Lib1Ref Campaign

Wikipedia is a first stop for researchers and students. Libraries can help to make it a better resource!

The University of New Hampshire libraries and local public libraries are participating in the international #1Lib1Ref (One Librarian, One Reference) campaign, which will run from May 15 to June 5, 2020.  The goal is for every participant to add a single reference to Wikipedia during the campaign period (but more are welcome!).

Find out more about this campaign and how to participate.
