Bloomsbury access

I got an email on May 13 that I had been approved for access to Bloomsbury resources, but I haven't received my credentials yet. Just following up... - PKM (talk) 20:43, 10 June 2017 (UTC)

@PKM: Could you please send me an email? Nikkimaria (talk) 01:07, 14 June 2017 (UTC)

APA access

Hello, I made an application for American Psychological Association for Wikipedia in January [1] and received a mail last February informing me that I could have an access for Wikipedia, so I filled the form corresponding but since then, nothing happened... Could you help me ? Thank you, best regards, --Pierrette13 (talk) 05:38, 26 June 2017 (UTC)

@Pierrette13: Apologies for not seeing this sooner. Do you have access now? If not I'll chase this up. Samwalton9 (WMF) (talk) 09:10, 17 July 2017 (UTC)
Hello hello Samwalton9 (WMF), thank you for your message, it's ok, I have the access now, best regards, --Pierrette13 (talk) 09:15, 17 July 2017 (UTC)

Library card platform

I am getting weird messages via e-mail from the Library Card Platform. It indicates Dear 34469123 (whoever that is) your application for Alexander Street Press, Cambridge University Press, and Jstor have been waitlisted (each one was a separate e-mail). I already have access to each of those and did not ask for access. Why am I receiving this if I did not request access? Is this to move my existing accounts to the new platform? SusunW (talk) 21:25, 15 July 2017 (UTC)

Hi SusunW and anyone else getting these messages: the developer for Library Card is importing data from all of the old spreadsheets/Google Forms, and it sounds like that's resulting in a bunch of strange emails getting sent out. Your access is exactly the same, and you don't need to do anything in response to this. Nikkimaria (talk) 21:47, 15 July 2017 (UTC)
Nikkimaria Thank you. Wasn't sure if it was a glitch, if I needed to do something, or if I should just ignore it. I always appreciate how fast you respond and your help. SusunW (talk) 21:50, 15 July 2017 (UTC)
Nikkimaria, thanks. I've been wondering about this too. SarahSV (talk) 22:52, 15 July 2017 (UTC)
This issue shouldn't occur again, and the related issue of being addressed with an ID rather than your username should also now be fixed. Apologies for the confusion, we'll be sending out an email to clarify this. Best, Samwalton9 (WMF) (talk) 09:10, 17 July 2017 (UTC)

Email delivery of Books & Bytes newsletter

We're excited to announce that email delivery of our bi-monthly newsletter Books & Bytes to your email is now possible. This is such an obvious thing that should've existed way long ago, but we finally got to it. If you are interested in receiving the newsletter via email, please subscribe here. If you have any questions regarding the subscription or the landing page, please drop me an email at avasanth[at]wikimedia[dot]org. Thanks --AVasanth (WMF) (talk) 04:15, 22 July 2017 (UTC)

New application process

I have just updated some of the partnership pages for which I provide coordination and I noticed that the description of the application process (specifically the process outlined here) is no longer accurate. I do think a template like that might be helpful to applicants to review before they click the Library card platform link, but it needs to be updated for generic use by all partnership pages.

Secondly: For the partnerships that I coordinate, I have marked the WP:PARTNERSHIP/Approved (and "Not approved") pages as historical and as archives. You can see what I mean at the top of this page. Do those headers make sense? Should all such pages be marked like this? -Thibbs (talk) 15:50, 22 July 2017 (UTC)
