Wikipedia Library does not reflect account expirations
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Under the "Individual access" tab under "My Library" it says that I have access to and However, my access to both expired earlier this year (as I was only given a 1-year complimentary account on each). It would be nice if my account on Wikipedia Library reflected this.

Note that this also prevents me from being able to re-apply to those partners.

The core issue here is that when partners distribute accounts to users on an individual basis (i.e. not via proxy), we don't have a clear understanding of when that account expires. In some cases we know approximately (in the case of it's ~1 year from approval time) so we can send renewal reminder emails, but providing a fixed date or direct information about the status of individually granted access is challenging.

That said, you should still be able to file for a renewal of this account at any time. I notice that I also can't renew my access, which looks to be a bug.
