উইকিবই অনেকগুলো উইকিমিডিয়া প্রকল্পের একটি। Wikibooks is different from many of the other projects in that Wikibooks focuses on writing books rather than single pages. w:উইকিপিডিয়া, উইকিউক্তি, and Wiktionary can each be thought of as hosting a single book for instance. Keeping this in mind should help you to understand many of Wikibooks' differences. This page is intended to help answer some frequently asked questions that people familiar with other Wikimedia projects ask and to help you become more familiar with Wikibooks' policies, guidelines and culture in the hopes that you might become a Wikibookian as well.

Wikibooks is closely related to Wikipedia, but it's not part of Wikipedia[সম্পাদনা]

The most striking differences between Wikipedia and Wikibooks have to do with the nature of the projects. Encyclopedia articles and textbooks simply aren't the same things.

Textbooks vs. articles[সম্পাদনা]

  • Wikibooks are supposed to be Textbooks, meaning that they are intended to facilitate teaching an area of knowledge.
  • Textbooks are self-contained, meaning that the chapters link to each other internally, but not to other wikibooks.
  • Textbooks have chapters, subchapters, and pages. A textbook should have navigation between its pages, a Table of Contents, and other book-like resources (glossary, appendices, etc).
  • Textbooks are not supposed to be collections of individual articles, but are supposed to have a unifying theme and narrative.
  • Textbooks shouldn't just include facts. A book needs to present those facts in a way that will be understandable by its target audience.

Wikibooks uses wikilinks conservatively[সম্পাদনা]

  • As a general rule, Wikibooks pages don't contain as many links as Wikipedia articles. This is because a book is supposed to be a self-contained resource with a contiguous narrative. Links to all sorts of outside places can, furthermore, serve as a distraction. Links to other resources should usually be placed in a separate resources or bibliography section at the end of the book or page.
  • Avoid making red-link references on Wikibooks. While it may sometimes be useful on Wikipedia to make red-links to articles that aren't written yet but would make a useful reference, on Wikibooks they should only be made to pages that fit in with the overall structure of that book.
  • External linking should also be exercised sparsely. If technical terms are used which may be unfamiliar to the book's target audience, you may link to an external source about the term. Note, however, that Wikibooks are not created only for use on this medium, but may be published in other forms (such as off-line or printed) where these links will not work. Please also be careful when doing this, as a link to a non-existent or misspelled Wikipedia article will not come up red on Wikibooks. Make sure to follow the link, see that it works properly, doesn't lead to a disambiguation page, etc.
  • To link to a Wikipedia article, use the form [[w:article|]], where "w:" is the prefix for Wikipedia (there are other prefixes for other Wikimedia projects). Do not use the external link form. Any text after the pipe will render as linked text. If there is no text after the pipe, the "w:" will be removed. This is colloquially known as the pipe trick. The previous example renders as article. The templates {{Wikipedia}} and {{Wikipedia-inline}} are also helpful. For more information on interwiki linking, see Help:Interwiki linking.

Wikibookians take a different approach to many things[সম্পাদনা]

Where are the WikiProjects?
Some can be found at Wikibooks:WikiProject. For ones that do not exist, a place to start a discussion on creating one would be the projects reading room.
