Addition of new 'See also' link[edit]

Dear all,

This is the first time I've done this, so please forgive me (and if possible advise me) if I've not done this correctly.

One of the Library's major collections is the Bartholomew Archive, the archive of the Edinburgh-based cartographic printer and publisher. It is regarded as one of the most important archives of its kind in the world, and as such I believe it warrants a link to the relevant Wikipedia page in the 'see also' section - the page is Collins Bartholomew. It is my aim to help to improve the Collins Bartholomew page meaning it will, in time, become an even more robust link.

My precedent for this is a similar link to the page on John Murray; the NLS holds this important archive too.

What do you think?

Many thanks, User:Karlalbaker —Preceding undated comment added 10:18, 21 August 2013 (UTC)

Potential COI - disclaimer[edit]

I have just updated the information for the NLS's operating budget in the infobox and have fixed the link to the annual audit (which was broken previously). The information is now correct and up-to-date for 2010/11. However, I work for the NLS as the Wikimedian in Residence. This is a minor edit which can easily be verified.

The working link to the the 2008/9 budget is available here and the 2010/11 audit now linked indicates the more recent operating budget in section 3.2 (for info, the Library also publishes its annual review, report and accounts on its website here). Not sure whether this would be a problem but wanted to post here for clarity in case there were concerns. ACrockford (talk) 19:20, 11 September 2013 (UTC)

My reading of the 'main intent' of COI policy is for editors involved in an institution or business making an edit that is promotional or in some way prejudicial for or against, without adequate WP:RS - to simply edit details of annual reports or details seems to be taking that general understanding of the COI issue too far. It is worth stating as above, but hardly an issue. sats 09:18, 12 September 2013 (UTC)
