Hello all – apologies for any cross-posting.


Just wanted to announce that there will be a Wikimeet taking place in Edinburgh on Sunday, 27 October, at the Malt Shovel Inn from 13:00 onwards. The Malt Shovel Inn is a very short (i.e. 2-3 minute) walk from Waverley station, so we hope to encourage Wikimedians and GLAM representatives interested in GLAMWiki collaborations to attend from outside of Edinburgh as well. Details are available on the events page here: https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Meetup/Edinburgh_4. This is the fourth Edinburgh meetup, but the first since 2011 as far as I can tell. It also follows off of two successful Wikimeets in Glasgow this past year, and we hope this trend will continue!


There is no formal agenda but as you can see on the events page a number of GLAM events have been raised as of interest so we very much hope to see many faces both new and old from WMUK and cultural institutions in Scotland.


See you there!
