  • 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)[reply]
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)[reply]

I clarified the legal definition of "inherent vice" and added a citation. [dlabinsky]

  • 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
