Come to the GLAM Cafe Meetup!

If you enjoy THATCampPhilly or  PhillyDH events, you'll feel at home at the GLAM Cafe! We provide the space, the coffee, and the snacks; you provide the ideas and the enthusiasm.

Those interested in specific topics or activities, such as geomapping, open data, or Wikipedia editing, can break out into groups. Feel free to propose a topic for discussion... Ask for feedback... Get together to work on shared ideas... Or curl up in a corner and relax… everyone is welcome.

    Tomorrow's GLAM Cafe at the Chemical Heritage Foundation, 315 Chestnut Street, will still be on the second floor, but not in the usual Overlook area. Turn left as you exit the elevators, and go to the Haas room at the end of the hall, to find the GLAM Cafe. As Matt has described, we will have a special presentation on GIS at 5.30 in the breakout room, Garden 2, to the right as you leave the elevator. This will be followed by the usual PhillyDH breakout at 6.30, also in Garden 2. Tuesday's Wikipedia Meetup at the GLAM Cafe will edit articles on Women in Science, and do event planning for "A GLAM Day Out!" on June 26. A Wiki loves Pride 2014 edit-a-thon will be part of "A GLAM Day Out!" on June 26.

    Best wishes, Mary Mark Ockerbloom

    This meetup will have the 1st of a 3 part GIS workshop series with GeoPhilly:

    "GeoPhilly is partnering with GLAMCafe / PhillyDH for a 3 part series on Geographic Information Systems. Join us for a broad overview of Geographic Information Systems. This 45 minute class will discuss how GIS is used, what tools exist, what types of analysis are possible. 15 minutes of question and answer will follow. This will give much needed background to how GIS can be used to solve problems. You will not need to bring a laptop to this event.

    This class has homework. Following the class, install QGIS on your personal machine and follow modules 1-7 in this guide. (Each module takes between 10 minute and one hour to complete). This will create a basic self-guided familiarity with the software, that is imperative to moving on to the next class.

    This event starts at 5:30, be on time!"
