> Hi lory, you have some hangout link as well?
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!
