Would like to renew as it has been helpful to me in the past. We hope (talk) 21:15, 25 May 2016 (UTC) I will confer with the library coordinator about this. NegMawon (talk) 18:58, 14 June 2016 (UTC)
I received an email from you and have taken care of the questionnaire. We hope (talk) 19:10, 14 June 2016 (UTC)

  2. Obenritter (talk · contribs · central auth · count · email) NEW Request. Professional historian with several year's worth of edits, mostly content in nomenclature.

  3. Pax85 (talk · contribs · central auth · count · email) Project MUSE seems that it would be especially helpful in work in the areas of philosophy, theology, and literature. There are times when I have needed sources, but haven't been able to access them, and my university does not have MUSE. MUSE would be of great benefit as I begin to lean more towards content creation, particularly in theology and literature. -Pax Verbum 17:19, 2 August 2016 (UTC)

  4. Madalibi (talk · contribs · central auth · count · email) I'm a content editor with more than 14,000 edits. Coming back from a long wikibreak, I'm now trying to edit new articles on lesser-known, yet potentially interesting aspects of Chinese history, such as the history of acupuncture or the history of medicine in China. Because Project MUSE gives access to a wide range of scholarly journals in the humanities and social sciences, it would nicely complement the books I already own on such topics. Thank you!

I was approved on August 21, almost three weeks ago, and quickly complete the Google form. I would just like to make sure I did not miss an important step, so that I am not considered "unresponsive".

I'm about to start work on another, and Questia MUSE access could be an excellent resource. Many thanks - The Bounder (talk) 21:13, 21 January 2017 (UTC)
    @The Bounder:, can you confirm that you are interested in Project MUSE? You mention interest in Questia and applied there, and I'd like to make sure that you meant to apply here as well. Smmurphy(Talk) 22:21, 26 January 2017 (UTC)
    Hi Smmurphy, yes I did. The academic journals cover some areas I have worked on (and will continue to do so), including A Christmas Carol, where the Dickens Quarterly would be an excellent resource; the films I have taken to GA would have benefitted from the film journals too, and some of the subjects I'd like to work on in future would be similarly well served by the journals alone. Many thanks for the consideration. - The Bounder (talk) 22:37, 26 January 2017 (UTC)

While I once had access to important research services such as MUSE, I no longer do and cannot grapple with the paywall alone.

Access to this resource will enable me enrich my knowledge on Nigerian/African literature, language, history and culture with the view to making more useful edits on Wikipedia. In my country, Nigeria, we don't have access to premium databases and online libraries like this so this would go a long way to help me.

  21. ContributorQ (talk · contribs · central auth · count · email) I am a contributor of the french Wikipedia, where I actively participate to the Japan project. Many times, the problem is not just to find a relevant source but to get access to as many good sources as possible to get confirmation of an information on the basis of several reliable sources. So, I guess that an access to the Project Muse should be an option. -ContributorQ (talk) 06:00, 7 March 2017 (UTC)

I often use research access to help others with their writing efforts here, as well as to check sources for verification.
