The Bookshelf, Young Texas Reader, Blog Notes, & Texana Youtube Channel

The Texas Bookshelf is for single, specific books' reviews and author interviews . The Texas Parlor ranges more broadly than my other websites. The Young Texas Reader focuses on the youngest through teenagers. Texas Blog Notes surveys blogs of historical and literary interest. I've started a Will's Texana Youtube collecting channel where 1,000 videos are collected in 100 playlists . Find Will in Houston or at willstexana {at} yahoodotcom

Wikipedia: WikiProject Texas

A WikiProject self-definition is
"This is a WikiProject, a collaboration area and open group of editors dedicated to improving Wikipedia's coverage of a particular topic, or to organizing some internal Wikipedia process."

The WikiProject Texas is defined as:
"Some Wikipedians have formed a project to better organize information in articles related to the U.S. state of Texas. This page and its subpages contain their suggestions; it is hoped that this project will help to focus the efforts of other Wikipedians. If you would like to help, please inquire on the talk page and see the to-do list there."
Scope: "This WikiProject aims primarily to expand Wikipedia's resources on Texas and present Texas in a fair and accurate manner."
"To improve the quality and quantity of Texas related articles, as exemplified by the featured articles Galveston Hurricane of 1900; Ike Altgens; Texas Ranger Division; Marshall, Texas; Houston, Texas; 2005 Texas Longhorn football team; and Texas A&M University.
To present a holistic view of Texas rather than the view of one region of Texas.
To make Wikipedia one of the premier online resources on Texas.
Contribute to the Texas portal: WP:Texas "

A list of individual participants is available on the webpage.

One of the sub-projects is exemplified by Dallas-Fort Worth project
