New articles

It was so much fun creating new articles that people kept creating them... and creating them...

Drafts started in sandbox

People practiced editing in their sandboxes, beginning to develop possible articles or just trying out editing with an artist they knew. Everyone is invited to bring their computers to the next GLAM Café, March 10, 2015, where they can continue to develop their articles.
