Fwd: Wikipedia at the Harvard Law Library

The people over at HLSL came up with a few ideas of collections we
could work with (and some date suggestions!). The idea being we could
pick one and they would pull together some resources for us to work
with. How do people feel about these?

Faithfully yours,
Molly

1. French Coutumes – collections of local French customary law. HLSL
has the largest collection of these in the US; LC and GWU Law also
have great collections.

Hidden collection – we have HOLLIS catalog records for these but the
collection is not easily discoverable as a whole on google – so a
Wikipedia article would be a great way to draw attention to our
collection, and we can link with the Wikipedia articles noted above
Importance to law: One of the most comprehensive collections of French
pre-revolutionary-war laws in existence
Some of these are really beautiful books/manuscripts as well

2. Crime Broadsides

Not a hidden collection – see http://broadsides.law.harvard.edu/ .  So
there is already readily discoverable information out there, but a
Wikipedia article would be one more avenue of discovery, and this
collection would make the “broadsides” entry in Wikipedia stronger.
Interesting and attractive collection
Importance to law: offers insight into the sensationalism of law in
18c and 19c England

Re: Fwd: Wikipedia at the Harvard Law Library

Woo!  Thanks for looking into this Molly.  Could we do something like
this at the end of the month / before the next term starts?

1) sounds like the best option.  Something already online that is only
"strengthened" by the effort might not be the best place to start.

Re: Fwd: Wikipedia at the Harvard Law Library

I agree that (1) seems better, per SJ's reasoning.

Is there any feeling on how long the event would last?

The times suggested on Doodle (http://www.doodle.com/rf2u7ctekv5xhstd) seem like they would make the event difficult to attend for folks who aren't college students in the Boston area.  Is there any way the event could be on a Saturday or Sunday, or, if it needs to be a weekday, end some time after 8:00 PM?

In any case, this sounds like a great idea, and a good conversation topic for our meetup next Monday (http://www.meetup.com/wikipedia-5/events/23076651/).

Classicist wanted to collaborate with Tufts department on first 'Wikieditions' project.

Hello Bostonians,

Prof. Gregory Crane (Head of Classics Department) from Tufts University is looking for a 'Classics' experienced Wikimedian to assist on a new project. The premise of the collaboration is to  Wikisource and translatevClassic texts, which will be annotated and interpreted collaboratively to form a 'Wikiedition'. If you are, or know anybody in the intersection of the Wikimedia and Classics please contact me.

Gratias,

Max Klein

Re: Fwd: Wikipedia at the Harvard Law Library

Karen Beck (our contact at HLSL) suggested we could do 6-9 over one of
the dates they suggested (Sept 6-9, 12, 13, 15, 16).

Faithfully yours,
Molly
