Picture of an Israeli librarian, using Wikipedia, used to publicise the project
|Date||15 January 2016|
#1Lib1Ref ("One Librarian, One Reference") was a Wikipedia publicity drive that asked each librarian on Earth to mark the 15th anniversary of the foundation of Wikipedia, on 15 January 2016, by adding a citation to the online encyclopedia.
The organisers estimated that if each librarian on the planet spent 15 minutes adding a citation, then the English Wikipedia's backlog of 350,000  templates would be cleared.
