On 4 June, as part of the GLAM-Wiki partnership with the British Library, Wikipedians, curators, researchers, authors and even a few American graduate students on a study abroad trip participated in the second Editathon at the British Library (see the Signpost coverage and the event page of the first British Library Editathon). The day was sponsored by the English and Drama Department, and focused on early fantasy and fictional worlds, international modern poets and Victorian authors, resulting in the creation of and improvement of related articles, new images, and audio files on Commons, and new content on Wikisource (results and more pictures are at the event page on Wikimedia UK's webpage). Wikipedians received guided tours of the British Library's Science Fiction exhibit "Out of this world" by the specialist curator who researched the exhibition, and were given opportunities to have a personal hands-on with original rare books and manuscripts, including those of works by Oscar Wilde and Dickens. Richard Power (User:Helical gear), one of the representatives from the British Library, said the "achievements of the day are to be determined in the long term". The Editathon also spawned ideas for future events with the British Library and several image requests.
