Sue, sorry we won't see you, but another time, for sure.

This connects up to Asaf's desire to work on bibliographies, I think. I, too, am very interested in that. My goal would be to have a set of good readings on as many of the topics in Wikipedia that we can cover. Not a giant-o complete list of everything written, but perhaps a "start here, continue on to..." There's no use giving folks a list of 3000 books and articles on a topic if you don't give them a starting point. So I've been reading up on principles of bibliography, classification, etc., and I think this is something that we can do that is totally useful.

If I get a chance I'll make a short bibliography of these on Zotero or something, so that they don't get lost.

Gah. I just realized I'm out of town that weekend so I won't be at the
editathon. That's a shame --- I'd been looking forward to it.

FWIW though, in case anybody wants to edit on transgender issues, here
are the books I've been working from. I'm not saying they're the best,
but they seem fine :-)

Thanks,
Sue

        The journal

                 Sue, great. Do you have a sense of what your sources
        will be?
                 I'm thinking that we could have some "reference
        materials" in
                 the room on our topics. In addition, BPL has some journal
                 subscriptions that might be useful. (SFPL has more, if
        you have
                 a library card with them.)

                 I know what you mean about "actually editing."
        Sometimes you
                 don't get much done, but I find I do get a lot of
        stimulation
                 for later edits.

        <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/__Wikipedia:CHEATSHEET

                          WP:CHEATSHEET is the easiest/most compact to use.

                          I'll also try to come up with some possible
        topics and
                     add them to
