The physical event was held in the State Library of New South Wales and was helped by remote contributions, including some from librarian editors who continue their support for our projects and sacrificed some of their weekend to help with this one. Our efforts resulted in a number of good outcomes that are listed on the project page. In brief, we:
created four new articles, including one on Theodora Cowan (pictured) that was DYK on 18 May;
created a useful new table that maps Wikipedia articles against the articles in the Encyclopedia of Women and Leadership in Twentieth Century Australia. This will enable us to continue to improve articles on Australian women as well as use the EWL publication for reference;
The initiative is designed to increase the availability of this publicly-funded free academic research service to the Wikipedia community. As described in The Signpost:
The partnership will give Wikipedia editors of any nationality the chance to use the library's research services on articles related to Australia; the arrangement is that a research librarian can spend up to one hour on the questions asked of them. While many GLAM-Wiki efforts have focused on uploading new content and editing articles related to the institutions involved, this project will break new ground by connecting Wikimedians with the NLA's research librarians. Instead of new content, Wikimedians will be provided with verifiable information backed up with reliable sources from the library's holdings.
