Edit-a-thons, improved

Edit-a-thons or editathons are as unpronounceable as they are popular: a common way to welcome novices to the realm of Wikipedia by means of a specific expertise. The participants in this roundtable have set up various local and international edit-a-thon series, for example in the frameworks of Europeana Fashion, Europeana Sounds and Europeana Awareness. In this roundtable they share their experiences, do's and don'ts in order to explore what makes the form so attractive for GLAMs, propose tips on making it more successful for the GLAMs involved and discuss how their long-term effect can be optimized for the Wikimedia community.
