I'm helping put together a series of Edit-a-thons at MA libraries, archives, and
museums for Open Access/Wikipedia Loves Libraries Week, and would love your help! Together
with my co-organizer Amanda Strauss (Schlesinger Library at Radcliffe), we are encouraging
MA GLAMs to join forces for Open Access to Mass History:
We are generally enthusiastic, but inexperienced. This is our first year in trying to
organize a series like this, and we would love to have at least one knowledgeable
Wikipedia editor at each site. (As we contacted potential hosts, each and every one first
asked about how to connect with a Wikipedia editor, so we think there are a lot of people
eager to learn the ropes.) So if there are any folks on this list that would like to
volunteer to be the local Wikipedia expert/tutorial giver, please let me know.
We have our list of confirmed sites up on the page above, and already have a few more in
the works, so hopefully there is a time and date that works for everyone interested.
Also, please feel free to share this widely, and let me know if you have any suggestions
on where else to publicize. And feel free to let us know if we are doing anything wrong!
