- Guided Tours: featured content using Wikiuniversity as a model. Take Dictionary of Greek and Roman Biography and Mythology as an example.
- Wikquote.org Wikisource.org interwiki linking: We should use interwiki links to show the quotes in context from works on Wikisource. Samples include:
- George Santayana (quotes) currently use Project Gutenberg link for Life of Reason by Santayana. Only one of four books is transcribed on WS.
- Baruch Spinoza (quotes) using libertyfund.org for Theological-Political Treatise (1670); Ethics (1674); Political Treatise (1677);
- René Descartes (quotes) for Le Discours de la Méthode
- Jean-Jacques Rousseau (quotes) for Discourse on Inequality (1754)
- Marcus Aurelius (quotes) for Meditations of Marcus Aurelius Antoninus
- Dante for Paradiso (different edition?)
- q:en:Babies refers to page 54 from Hoyt's New Cyclopedia Of Practical Quotations (1922)

Priority to Same Language WikiSource
- If the verse refers to a book in the same language or author, wikilink to the title or author page on WS within the same language. When these pages don't exist, still wikilink leaving the red link for future expansion.
Second Priority Same Language Wikipedia
- If the verse refers to a historical fact (place, person) in the same language, wikilink to the title on WS within the same language.
- No English translation exists for a title, so no linking. Leave text.
