A GLAM Day Out is a day-long event, held Thursday, June 26, 2014, offering information about institutionally and personally working with Wikipedia. People are welcome to attend whatever parts of the day match with their interests and the time they have available; see the schedule below for times and details.
Invited speakers Dominic McDevitt-Parks and Dorothy Howard will discuss content collaboration and metrics for evaluating institutional involvement with Wikipedia. Learn how to edit pages in a workshop with Mary Mark Ockerbloom, and dive in for some hands on experience editing Wikipedia articles in our edit-a-thon. No previous Wikipedia experience necessary!
In celebration of June as LGBT Pride Month, guest speaker and archivist Bob Skiba will talk about GLAM/LGBT initiatives in the Philadelphia area. He will also discuss LGBT content sources, as an introduction to the "Wiki Loves Pride" themed edit-a-thon. Everyone is welcome. Editors are encouraged to bring materials from their institutions or personal collections, and to work on whatever topics they wish, whether LGBT-related or reflecting other areas of interest. Experienced Wikipedia coaches will be available to help and to answer questions.
