Dear All,

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.

Best wishes,

Dorothy Howard
