- Margaret Kidd ( TheMadGiggler) I edited the finding aid entry to update the mention of DACS to the second edition. Just a basic edit to get the feel of things.
- What are people's thoughts on continuing this conversation and working together after the conference is over? We can begin by using this page but are there other ways to keep engaging such as a wikiproject? Adam Kriesberg (talk) 14:26, 14 August 2014 (UTC)
- I would love to do that! I was thinking about an informal meetup of archivist Wikipedians here at some point during the conference, too, if anyone wants to organize that. Dominic·t 14:45, 14 August 2014 (UTC)
- Open Archives Initiative - updated references and funders. Jeanne Kramer-Smyth (Jkramersmyth (talk))
I clarified the legal definition of "inherent vice" and added a citation. [dlabinsky]
- I also edited the article for former archivist of the United States Robert Warner, adding a link or two and clarifying a bit. Adam Kriesberg (talk)
- Improved Society of American Archivists article by adding presidents. Also added information to the pages of SAA presidents Albert R. Newsome, Waldo Gifford Leland, Robert D. W. Connor, Solon J. Buck, William David McCain, Robert H. Bahmer, William Kaye Lamb, Robert M. Warner. Merrilee (talk) 20:31, 14 August 2014 (UTC)
- Mutation breeding - Added historical information and internal links. The topic is related to my M.A. research on atomic farming, so I'll keep working on it. The page needs copy editing and more content. cdfite
- Worked a bit on the Judith Nadler bio stub and plan to work on several stubs in Category:Library and information science biography stubs. Editing on a tablet was an interesting experience! extabulis (talk) 21:58, 14 August 2014 (UTC)
