[Wikimedia-l] Recognition of Florida Librarians of Wikipedia

Carlos M. Colina
Dear all,

It is my pleasure, on behalf of the Affiliations Committee, to announce
the recognition of a new WIkimedia User Group: Florida Librarians of
Wikipedia [1]

As their name implies, they are librarians, and they want to focus on
training other librarians on how to contribute to the different
Wikimedia projects, especially Wikipedia. Apart from that, they have
already organized some edit-a-thons and they're looking forward to
organize more, as well as meetups of Wikimedians (librarians an
non-librarians).

Welcome to the family!

Brill Lyle
Congratulations to this new user group!

Hope it's okay -- I added a link to this meta page to the Wikipedia:Meetup
namespace:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Meetup#Projects_.26_initiatives

Please reach out if any of us local Wikipedia chapters can be of
assistance. To the best of our resources, I think I can speak for Wikimedia
NYC and say we are happy to provide remote assistance and more importantly
guidance on helpful resources and event page content.

Also: There are a LOT of librarians in the Wikipedia:Meetup community who
are happy to assist. And hopefully reduce the need to re-invent the wheel
for much of the mechanical parts of editathons.

WM NYC and myself, inspired by the work of Dorothy Howard, have been having
an active discussion about Wikipedia editathons in a box, as well as
metrics in a box. To my mind it's basically event pages on the Wikipedia
meetup space (to onboard people to Wikipedia vs. Meta), with consistent
infoboxes, information, and resources. We also use a tabbed header for many
of the initiatives, as it seems to help a lot.

Congrats again! And Welcome!

Best,

- Erika

Welcome! And congratulations :)

P.S. Are all members of the UG already subscribed to this list?
The page says that the talk page [1] is the best place to contact the group.
Maybe we need to post welcomes there, as Lane did :)
