*After a brief hiatus, monthly GLAMouts will resume just after Labor Day
this September, on Thursday September 4th at 3pm EST.*
As you may know, GLAMouts are an opportunity for U.S.-based and other
Wikipedians working in GLAM institutions or affiliated projects to share
project updates, discuss recent initiatives, and ask each other questions.
It is also an opportunity for those interested in GLAM-Wiki U.S. to
introduce themselves and learn from other community members.
I encourage you to RSVP and sign up now on our event page
if you are interested in presenting so we can all get a better idea of the
agenda. So far I’ve added a few suggested topics to the list and you are
welcome to claim one of those if you like as well.
Per usual, we will be using a Google hangout which will be emailed to
confirmed participants beforehand, added to the Wikipedia event page just
before the hangout, and Tweeted out via @glamwiki, my own account
@DorothyR_Howard, and the accounts of other regular GLAMout participants.
The video will also be streamed on Youtube for those who just want to watch
and the link will be made available on the event page on Wikipedia.
Please forward this message widely to those you think may be interested.

I'm excited to share that the New Media Consortium has released their first
Horizon Report for Libraries. For years NMC has produced Horizon Reports
for the academic and museum sectors, and those reports are invaluable for
monitoring shifts in the use of technology in informal and formal learning
You can see the full report here:
The Wikipedia Library and DPLA are both mentioned.
I've served on the Horizon Report: Museum Edition advisory board for three
years, and I'm a contributing editor for the NMC blog, where I discuss
Wikipedia frequently. I've always been impressed by the New Media
Consortium's process for incorporating diverse expertise and perspectives
into their reports. Hopefully you all find this useful, as well.
