2015 Schedule

The schedule for 2015 has be finalised. Here is a brief overview:

6 edit-a-thons including one for Engineering Week and several with National
Museum of Ireland

Attendance at 4 conferences including the annual CESI Conference, EdTech
Conference, and Digital Preservation Conference

2015 Wiki Loves Monuments Contest

We hope to have several programs up and running at NUI Galway

We also hope to establish relationships with NMI Collins Barracks and the
National Maritime Museum


In conjunction with the report on the WLM grant SE will request to retain
unused funds to help to fund the project for the next year. The funds will
be used to acquire several wifi boxes and laptop computers for events, a
printing budget, and other miscellaneous costs


One of the main focuses of this year will be recruiting. JQ has some
contacts at NUIG, Glasnevin and Trinity that might be interested. A casual
meeting will be arranged in the next few weeks to “pitch” the group and try
to recruit more members

The next meeting will take place on Wednesday 14 January at 6pm. If you
would like to attend, either in person or virtually, please send an email
