From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki

About me[edit]

I am a librarian at a university in the United States. I began using Wikipedia as a tool for teaching information literacy skills in 2019. I sometimes create and edit articles related to marginalized histories. In my work I engage with libraries and library staff around the globe with the goal of improving information literacy skills and Wikipedia, simultaneously.
