In addition, he has compiled a Wikipedia Table of Contents, and a Wikipedia Contributor Appendix.
Since introducing self-publishing in 2002, Lulu.com has empowered creators in more than 225 countries and territories to produce nearly two million publications. Lulu.com is available in six languages: English, French, Spanish, German, Italian and Dutch.
