  1. Zigzig20s (talk · contribs · central auth · count · email) I've been editing Wikipedia for a decade, creating countless articles. I already use Wikipedia Library resources like Jstor and Newspapers.com a lot to add in-line references, and I believe Emerald would let me do this too, especially in business-related articles. (For example, their access to Journal of Family Business Management could be very useful.)Zigzig20s (talk) 19:03, 30 August 2016 (UTC) Approved @Zigzig20s: Expect an email with further details. AllyD (talk) 08:59, 12 September 2016 (UTC) @Zigzig20s: You should have received account details from Emerald a few days ago; has everything been set up ok for you?

  4. Czar (talk · contribs · central auth · count · email) This publisher wasn't on my radar but I've already found several relevant sources in their backfile on alternative education. I've written multiple GAs in this subfield alone, and I'll continue to dig around. czar 05:31, 31 August 2016 (UTC) Approved @Czar: Expect an email with further details. AllyD (talk) 08:59, 12 September 2016 (UTC) @Czar: You should have received account details direct from Emerald a few days ago; has everything been set up ok for you?

I'm mainly interested in this resource for the engineering, which is my professional field and one I contribute to on Wikipedia, but I don't have access to much resources in this field.

  6. Hnaluru (talk · contribs · central auth · count · email) I have been an active user and contributor of Wikipedia for more than a decade and as I started inching towards more content development, I began to look at sources, Emerald offers to provide such a platform and I am keen to be a part of this library. My interests include India, Archaeology, History, Science and Politics. Thanks for considering. Hnaluru (talk) 18:21, 1 September 2016 (UTC) Not approved Hnaluru: As you don't yet meet the experience requirements, I think it would be helpful for you to do a bit more editing first before applying for access. In the interim, I recommend using the Resource Exchange to seek specific sources you may need. AllyD (talk) 12:25, 12 September 2016 (UTC)
  7. Velella (talk · contribs · central auth · count · email) I am looking for good sources in the water supply and sanitation fields which seem greatly lacking at present.

I have created and expanded Freshwater environmental quality parameters, Environmental monitoring, Slow sand filter, Sewage regulation and administration, Industrial wastewater treatment and some other related articles. I am now retired I no longer have access to Government and Academic on-line libraries upon which I once relied.  Velella  Velella Talk   21:42, 1 September 2016 (UTC) Approved @Velella: Expect an email with further details.
