About Me[edit]

I am a GLAM enthusiast & do my best to facilitate connections between archives, library, and museum staff and Wikipedians and Wikimedians. I like to write about art and artists, notable women, local landmarks, podcasts, and library and information science. You are most likely to find me making articles more attractive and easier to read by revising leads and adding authoritative citations, headings, images, & infoboxes. Leave a message on my talk page or find me on twitter @sosarasays.

Conflict of Interest Statement[edit]

I, User:sarasays, am an employee of the Smithsonian American Art Museum, a cultural institution per WP:GLAM. I accept the editing conditions specified at that page. I will not make any edits that would not be beneficial to the goals of Wikipedia.

My main edits tend to consist of the following activities:

  • Creating or enhancing existing biographies of notable American artists or art world figures based on both published and original primary source materials.
  • Creating or enhancing existing biographies of other notable scholars, researchers, and cultural figures, especially those from under-represented populations.
  • Adding authoritative references, citations, and images to improve the quality of existing articles of all types.
  • Updating project pages related to GLAM and to the Smithsonian

I will modify my editing behavior based on problems cited by other editors or if my editing conflicts with other Wikipedia guidelines. I ask that other editors do not hesitate to contact me, via my user talk page, if I appear to be going against this declaration. --Sarasays (talk) 18:22, 6 July 2012 (UTC)
