Philadelphia's GLAM Café continues to meet on a monthly basis. Activities include Wikipedia editing, planning for ThatCamp Philly, and a variety of informal talks and presentations. All are welcome, whether to socialize, strategize, or work on a project.
The July meeting was held in Temple University's new Digital Scholarship Center just days after it opened! Attendees saw some of the center's tech toys, which include Oculus Rift and a new 3D scanner. The next two meetings will also be held there, on Tuesday, August 11 and September 8, 5:00-8:00 PM, the Samuel Paley Library, Temple University, 1210 Polett Walk, Philadelphia, PA. In September, help Temple to celebrate all types of games by working on an article about your favorite game. (You can even bring it along to share with others!)
On Tuesday, October 13, the Cafe will return to the Chemical Heritage Foundation, 315 Chestnut Street, Philadelphia, PA, where it will meet in October, November and December. We hope you will help us to celebrate Ada Lovelace Day on October 13, 2015 by editing articles about women in history and science! Please contact Mary Mark Ockerbloom if you are interested in helping to organize this event.
