Agenda[edit]

Primary goal is to encourage editing. Experienced editors will assist new users with basics and answer questions. And of course, socializing.

Location[edit]

Computer room of the new Billings Public Library. Will need to use entrance on 6th Ave due to ongoing construction. No food or drink items are allowed in the computer room. WiFi available.

Report[edit]

Rjensen and Tammy Bennert were the only current editors to attend. In addition there were 7 others with various interests. Provided all attendees with my contact information both on and off-Wiki. So far the only follow-up is with a high school librarian. RJensen and I discussed the possibility of a more targeted outreach such as high school teachers. This may be more fruitful as the diversity of the meetup attendees made it difficult to focus the information provided. --Tbennert (talk) 17:28, 20 January 2014 (UTC)
