Metropolitan New York Library Council (METRO) is a consortium of libraries and archives in New York. The focus of this project will be to educate our member institutions about how they can use Wikipedia to fulfill their institutional missions and reach new audiences. The project includes but is not limited to: Wikipedia consultations for members, private staff trainings and educational Wikipedia events, Wikipedia Edit-a-thon and events organizing, panel and workshop curation, the development of online resources for educating librarians and archivists about Wikipedia, bridging institutions working with Wikipedia together, and the documentation of the GLAM-Wiki movement in New York.

Dorothy provides consultation, project support, and technical advising on Wikipedia editing to the New York community. Dorothy has also lectured widely on Wikipedia and offers staff Wikipedia editing trainings to institutions, as well as advising on Wikipedia Edit-a-thon and events organizing.
