Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]


This template is only for staff of the National Archives and Records Administration, in order to allow them to create pre-made user pages with standard NARA-approved conflict of interest disclosure language. It will also place these user pages in a category (Category:Wikipedia:GLAM/NARA participants (staff)) which allows us to easily see all staff accounts at once.


The template has the following parameters:

About me

I am a paid employee of the U.S. National Archives (NARA), a federal agency which preserves and makes available the records of the U.S. federal government. We are working to make our holdings, publications, and other resources more accessible to the public by engaging directly with Wikipedia.

I live at 700 Pennsylvania Ave. in Washington, D.C. and I am T.R. Schellenberg's biggest fan.

Conflict of interest statement

When I am editing Wikipedia as part of my official professional duties, I always strive to strictly abide by Wikipedia's accepted practices on conflicts of interest, neutrality, and notability. Because the National Archives' educational mission is in line with Wikipedia's mission to disseminate knowledge freely, I will not make edits that I do not believe are in accordance with Wikipedia's practices and procedures. Therefore, I will not make substantive edits to articles related to NARA as an agency (e.g. National Archives and Records Administration), or its personnel. Instead, if I edit articles, they will be to contribute subject matter expertise, for example to improve articles about NARA holdings (e.g. De Lome Letter, Louisiana Purchase).

You can find out more about this project at the National Archives WikiProject. NARA’s work on Wikipedia is being governed by internal guidelines, which we have published on-wiki at our WikiProject. If you believe I have made an error or violated Wikipedia’s norms, please do not hesitate to contact me. My email is also listed on this page in case I am not regularly checking my talk page. You may also contact Dominic Byrd-McDevitt, who is a Wikipedian and the project leader for the National Archives’ presence on Wikipedia, with any concerns.
