What is the GLAM Café?
The GLAM Café is an informal gathering for Digital Humanities and GLAM (Galleries, Libraries, Archives and Museums) enthusiasts, including Wikipedians. It's like an Unconference or ThatCamp, where attendees choose their own agenda and break out into special interest groups for whatever interests them.
We would like to encourage Wikipedians, and people interested in learning more about Wikipedia, to attend the GLAM Café, to discuss Wikimedia and wikis and to collaboratively edit Wikipedia. There's no set agenda, and you are welcome to recommend articles for others to edit, or to edit on your own. The concept is similar to DC's WikiSalon.
You don't have to be an expert. We're happy to provide suggestions and help as needed. If you're interested in a particular topic related to the history of science or chemistry, ask us a few days in advance, and we can request that the librarians and archivists search for resources on that topic.
We provide the space, the coffee, and the snacks; you provide the ideas and the enthusiasm. Feel free to propose a topic for discussion... Ask for feedback... Get together to work on shared ideas... Or curl up in a corner and relax… everyone is welcome.
