referenceworks.brillonline.com[edit]

My account doesn't seem to work on pages in the domain http://referenceworks.brillonline.com. It did work on booksandjournals. Is this expected, or did I configure it wrongly? Is there any plan to expand access to referenceworks, given that there's high quality content there? HaEr48 (talk) 04:04, 7 December 2016 (UTC)

@HaEr48: We currently only have access to Books and Journals from Brill, however Reference Works is something we know is in demand and we're working on getting it added to the available resources. Samwalton9 (WMF) (talk) 14:31, 7 December 2016 (UTC)
That will be a good news for us. --Mhhossein talk 07:11, 9 December 2016 (UTC)
@Samwalton9 (WMF): any update about Reference Works? HaEr48 (talk) 02:36, 23 January 2018 (UTC)
@HaEr48: Unfortunately not yet. I'll be sure to update here if it's likely to be made available. Samwalton9 (WMF) (talk) 21:27, 23 January 2018 (UTC)

Account renewal[edit]

Hello, my account seems to have expired, as I can no longer access articles and chapters on Brill's website. Is it possible to apply for a renewal? Thank you, ContinuaEvoluzione 16:07, 27 January 2017 (UTC)

@Continua Evoluzione: We've not heard back from Brill about continuing the access donations for another year yet, but I'll see if we can get an answer. I'll let you know for certain when I know more. Samwalton9 (WMF) (talk) 18:14, 27 January 2017 (UTC)
@Samwalton9 (WMF): Hey, any fresh news regarding Brill? --Mhhossein talk 07:23, 24 September 2017 (UTC)
@Mhhossein: Unfortunately I haven't heard back from our contacts at Brill for some time, but I'll see what I can do. Samwalton9 (WMF) (talk) 09:40, 25 September 2017 (UTC)
@Samwalton9 (WMF): Yes, it would be nice to hear more about them. I was second or third on a waitlist from a year ago, but that list was recently deleted without explanation, and no one seems to have been granted access in a long time. I'm still hoping to get a Brill account through Wikipedia, as access to JSTOR and MUSE have both helped immeasurably in my editing. Thank you for being our liaison!

@Madalibi: FYI, the list hasn't been deleted, it's still at Wikipedia:Brill (see header Waitlist). The section is closed given the lack of current accounts available; the intention is, if/when more do become available, waitlisted editors will be pinged to see who is still active and interested in applying.

@Nikkimaria: Oh, I see! Sorry for the misunderstanding, and thank you for the clarification. Do let me know if new accounts become available. Thank you! Madalibi (talk) 03:34, 26 September 2017 (UTC)
