The GLAM-Wiki GLAMOut (hosted by the US GLAM-Wiki Consortium but open to
all :) is happening now (3pm ET) on Google Hangouts On Air. Please join us!
Feel free to post questions on the #glamwiki hashtag if you're not one of
those taking part in the Hangout itself, but are instead watching live.
Can't join us now? The video will be available soon. Please post agenda
items and sign up for the July Hangout as well! (The wiki page will be
updated with the new header immediately following this Hangout.)

I saw this on another list and think it is of interest to US GLAM people
-- including people who are not technologists.

> I’m not really a coder. Can I still come to Code4Lib Midwest?*
> Absolutely! Code4Lib events are always open to people who don’t think of

> libraries and cultural heritage institutions. Not all of the talks and
> breakout sessions will be about “code,” either. Topics like digital

> *How much does it cost? What are the logistics?*
> Nothing! Registration for Code4Lib Midwest is free. Just add your name to

> Sunday nights. More logistical information is available on the wiki.
> *How do I propose a talk/workshop/discussion?*
> Just add it to the wiki (http://wiki.code4lib.org/index.php/Midwest). We

This sort of tool is, in its most general form, not specific to Wikipedia.
Are there any widespread tools for tracking visibility of an archive
on other sites on the web?

Cool! Thanks for pointing me to the right direction.
However I need something a bit more, including more languages and
categorization of types of pages (encyclopedia article page, talk and
other "house-keeping" pages) since the goal is to build a tool for
measuring Wkipedia presence of digital humanities websites.
For the case of measuring welshjournals.llgc.org.uk, I believe that
stats from Welsh Wikipedia (cy.wikipedia.org) is necessary for this
case, but not included by the LinkSearch.

The meeting's over. Video should or will be up on youtube (and maybe
eventually commons?) watch the glamout page onwiki.
We will be hosting our next edition of the GLAMout tomorrow (or today,
depending on your time zone!), July 12, starting at 3 p.m. EDT (12 p.m. PDT
/ 07:00 UTC). GLAMout is an opportunity to share news and information with
one another, and hear what is going on in GLAM-Wiki. This month, we will be
hearing about the Chemical Heritage Foundation's new Wikipedian in
Residence and latest editathon, the Smithsonian Institution Archives'
editathon, and the GLAM-Wiki US Consortium's new Wikimedia affiliate status.
We are still looking for more participants! If you have your own GLAM-Wiki
news to share, or would simply like to be part of the on-air conversation,
please sign up at:**
And you can also watch the broadcast live on YouTube, and send in
questions/comments to the participants using the #glamwiki hashtag. We will
be tweeting the link to the live video on that hashtag from @glamwiki
shortly before the broadcast, so please follow along!
