Dear Wikimedia NYC,

It was great to meet all of you at your last meeting. I'd like to share a
few GLAM-Wiki projects I've been working on at METRO.

The Metropolitan New York Library GLAM
regularly updated. Add your name to the contact list and help out by
adding articles about NY GLAM institutions to the To-do list and
contributing your editing skills.

I've made several GLAM-specific guides to help NY GLAMs become familiar
with the movement and editing practices. I give people these links when I'm
doing trainings or intros to GLAM-Wiki.

* Wikipedia for Libraries, Archives,
* A Wikipedia and Open Data LibGuide

We have two Edit-a-Thons scheduled in the next few months. Please spread
the word to your communities and friends. If you plan to come to the events
please sign up on the pages so we know how many editors to expect.
