Dear Libraries UserGroup,
I hope you have already heard of this currently-open call for proposals to
lead a "Space" [aka symposia] at Wikimania this year - see initial
With one week to go in the call, we have so far received submissions on a
variety of topic areas (see public summaries here):
However, as you'll note, there's nothing there that is related specifically
to cultural partnerships, GLAM-wiki in general, nor Libraries specifically.
Also, please note that U.G. Medicine, and U.G. Education have proposed to
be the leaders of "spaces" on their respective topics. So, I thought it
prudent to contact you directly to invite you to participate. If you were
not sure if the Libraries U.G. (as a collective), or individuals within it,
were welcome to make a proposal... please consider yourselves invited and
welcome! I personally see a LOT of scope for a Wikimania space dedicated to
issues at the intersection of Wikimedia, the SDGs, and Libraries. So I do
hope that this important topic area is visible in the conference program!
Please contact me if you've any questions. Sincerely,
- Liam / Wittylama (program chair), cc'ing Eric Luth from WM-SE.
