Is 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM on Thursday 9/15 still available as a date to work
with the HLSL's French Coutumes collection?
If so, then we could put up a Wikipedia geonotice for the event, and let
people know on the
group (as well as next Monday's meetup). We
could also announce the event to relevant WikiProjects, e.g. WikiProject
Law, WikiProject France, etc.
Would it be possible to upload media for this collection to Wikimedia

See more discussion of 'Wikipedia Loves Libraries' potential events at
Harvard *and* MIT here:
Any luck in following up (see wiki thread above) with the MIT or
Harvard folks, about a Wikipedia Loves Libraries event in October
(which is fast approaching)?
