The Library

TarValon.Net's Library (or simply the Library) is an extensive knowledge base on all things Wheel of Time (including book and television series) and TarValon.Net's history. The Library is in the form of a wiki and is powered by MediaWiki software.

The creation and editing of Library articles happens on a volunteer basis by members of TarValon.Net. All articles submitted in the Library are automatically copyrighted and are TarValon.Net's property; they shouldn't be distributed without the knowledge of TarValon.Net, or used for personal or otherwise monetary gain. Please read the TarValon.Net Library Copyright Policy for more information.

Contributing to the Library also has its benefits - there are several Merit Badges that can be earned by editing or writing articles for the Library.

The Manual
