From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki

June 28-29, 2018[edit]


  1. Meeting Frequency
    • Doodle poll responsibilities
    • Facilitator rotation
    • Meetings per month: just one (4 in support)
      • More sustainable
      • Easier to schedule
      • Important to work asynchronously
      • May bring back less active members
      • Challenge to make people proactive
  2. Discussion: do we need roles (chair, vice-chair, etc.)
    • We need task owners based on means/ends
    • Need clear to-do's from meetings
    • Hard to have a single leader for workload reasons
    • Inaction possibly a result of not having poll results yet
  3. Means and Ends Poll update
    • Books & Bytes
    • Analyze poll results
  4. Wikimania
    • Librarians 101 preconference
    • Book Swapping
      • Need to announce soon and broadly
      • W + L Community Booth requested
      • Could make basic stickers for preconference and Wikimania
        • Need URL (but bit.ly is fine), can get domain name later with logo and tagline
        • Better to just have a handout
    • User Group Meetup Lunch
    • Session guidance
    • Who is attending?
      • Need a report back from WM attendees
      • Share videos of library-related talks
