Wikipedia Bookshelf Project
"The Wikipedia Bookshelf Project will create a core set of public outreach materials designed to recruit new Wikipedia editors by increasing their awareness and interest, fostering excitement, and providing the training tools new editors need to get started. Recruiting new high-value contributors to Wikipedia will increase its value today and for the future. The materials will be developed in English and will be designed for translation, adaptation and use by volunteers, chapters and educational institutions such as schools and universities. The Bookshelf will be developed using the Wikimedia project team, community volunteers, and production experts"
