"Knowing I lov'd my books, he furnish'd me
From mine own library with volumes that
I prize above my dukedom."

– Prospero to Miranda in The Tempest, Act 1 Scene 2, by William Shakespeare

Welcome to the Literature Wikiproject main page.

Anyone is invited to join in the effort by adding their name to the members list. A list of current jobs needing to be done can be found in the to do section. We call special attention to our current effort to gather new members and determine project scope and status.

To do[edit]

If Wikipedia has an article or article section about those topics, please add links to them.

Departments

Assessment

The assessment department focuses on assessing the quality of Wikipedia's Literature articles. The article ratings are used within the project to aid in recognizing excellent contributions and identifying topics in need of further work.

The ratings are done in a distributed fashion through parameters in the project banner; this causes the articles to be placed in a set of categories that serves as the basis for an automatically generated worklist.

Collaboration

The project's Collaboration department seeks to identify particular articles that would benefit from a significant collaborative effort. A single article is selected as the focus, and the project attempts to improve it, potentially to featured article standards. The current collaboration article is Literature.

Any Literature article is eligible, and everyone is invited to nominate articles.

Task forces

Task forces are informal groups of editors gathered for collaborative work on a particular topic within the field of Literature (as defined in the "scope" above); all project members are encouraged to participate in any task forces that interest them.
