One of our partner library services made a presentation at the sector-wide "Digital Champions" meeting (coordinated by SLIC) about their involvement in the project so far; this resulted in a number of good leads including a presentation made to a potential new public library service partner in early March.
On Friday 23 February an edit-a-thon was held at the Scottish Poetry Library - hopefully the first of many - on "Lost Poets of Scotland". 10 editors created 4 new pages and 5 new draft pages. Help is welcomed in improving the latter so that they can be moved to mainspace, details can be found here.
A pre-edit-a-thon training session was held for new editors in Greenock, with our project partners Inverclyde Libraries. This event was extremely positive and bodes well for the edit-a-thon (taking place Wednesday 7 March) and for future activity.
SLIC & the WiR are currently hosting an Information & Library Studies Masters student from the University of Strathclyde, Jenny King. Jenny is working with a local history group based in Govan on an edit-a-thon which will take place at the end of March. This group have engaged with Wikimedia before and are keen to make this part of their ongoing work around Suffragettes & the history of the protest movement in Glasgow.
