Hi All,

As many of you know, I will be applying for a Wikimedia Foundation PEG
grant to extend my current working capacity (currently 2 days a week) as
Wikipedian-in-Residence at METRO
<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:GLAM/Metropolitan_New_York_Library_Council>.
One of my main frustrations at METRO is not being able to respond to
requests from non-METRO members as METRO wants me to focus only on
institutions within our membership. This grant (linked)
<https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Grants:PEG/Metro/Institutional_Growth_and_Community_Fellow>
will
enable me to have 1 extra day at METRO where I can do outreach to non-METRO
members as well.

I want to clarify what this grant's relationship to Wikimedia NYC will be
so as to ask for your endorsements and make sure we are on the same page.

*Attn: WMNYC Board members: *If you support this grant, I would be
extremely appreciative if you make a comment endorsing it on the grant's
talk page
<https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Grants_talk:PEG/Metro/Institutional_Growth_and_Community_Fellow>
where the grant committee is currently discussing it.

*Agreement: *

   -

   Collaboration between METRO's Wikipedian-in-Residence and WMNYC will be
   sought for public events. If WMNYC contributes support for an event, and a
   co-host role is approved by the institution or group providing space and
   other event resources, then WMNYC will be listed as a co-organizer on event
   materials. This co-host role will be determined on an event-by-event basis.
   -

   WMNYC may report on the activities and projects organized by METRO's
   Wikipedian-in-Residence as part of the scope of chapter activities and
   official chapter reporting where events were co-organized.
   -

   WMNYC and WMDC may serve in an advisory role over the METRO WiR as
   endorsing chapters, and will have access to project reporting. WMNYC may
   report on its role as an advisor and endorser to this grant
   -

   Funds provided in the grant for food and printing expenses will be used
   towards Edit-a-Thons and other public events hosted by METRO or in
   collaboration with WMNYC or WMDC.


Dorothy
