The May 2022 edition of #1Lib1Ref has come to a close with very interesting results. The campaign happened from May 15th to June 5th and it was an opportunity for people in the southern hemisphere to participate.
According to the Outreach Dashboard campaign, we were joined by 24 programs that gathered 520 editors. That is almost 100 more editors than last year!
We also had:
- 8.79K references added
- 1.82M words added
- 10.8K articles edited
- 1.48K articles created
- 1.2K Commons uploads
- 9.54K total revisions on Wikidata
This year's highlights will also go to the campaigns by AfLIA (1Lib1Ref African Librarians Week 2022) and by the Igbo Wikimedians User Group (1lib1ref cite-a-thon). AfLIA added 3.15K references alone and the user group added 1.44K.
This year, the May campaign managed to keep up with last year's stats, overcoming them by a small margin. In 2021, there were 24 programs, 428 editors, and 8.54K references added according to the Outreach Dashboard.
On the other hand, according to the overall stats on Wikipedia, the "#1Lib1Ref" hashtag was used less this year. We are still gathering this data and will update this page with the information soon.
