About me

I became a librarian because I was a Wikipedian. Coming from a small town with an almost-always-closed public library, Wikipedia was my window to a larger world. When I had the privilege of a good library nearby, my goal was clear: sharing knowledge in the Wikimedia Projects, as others did for me.

My work

In February 2023, I joined the Wikimedia Foundation to work as the Senior Program Officer, Libraries as part of the Culture & Heritage team (previously known as GLAM & Culture) which works within Community Programs larger team.

Some hopefully useful resources I've been working on:

  1. How To #1Lib1Ref, a little page where I have gathered tricks, tools and ideas for your campaign
  2. TMIG database, a spreadsheet with the full text of all This Month in GLAM reports from 2011 to March 2023.
Disclaimer: I work for or provide services to the Wikimedia Foundation, and this is the account I try to use for edits or statements I make in that role. However, the Foundation does not vet all my activity, so edits, statements, or other contributions made by this account may not reflect the views of the Foundation.
