In November 2011, Wikimedia Argentina held a meetup at La Plata Astronomical Observatory. Photographs of the meetup can be found on Flickr. The event was attended mostly by local Wikimedians, and included workshops for new editors. Several students and professors from La Plata University attended, along with Matthew Roth who took videos for Wikimedia Foundation's fundraiser. The meetup included a session for librarians where they learned how to scan books, using a "Do It Yourself" Book Scanner. The group worked on scanning an astronomy text from 1764, which is already uploaded to Commons.
