I work as a Wikimedian in Residence for the Scottish Library and Information Council.
If I could visit a fictional character, I would go meet with Thursday Next in Jasper Fforde's Great Library. The OUPBlog has voted the Cheshire Cat as one of the best librarian characters in Fantasy Fiction.
I am particularly interested in the following topics:
- Increasing the amount of quality content uploaded to Wikipedia on Scottish Culture
- Bridging the gender gap - encouraging more women to edit on Wikipedia
- Increasing the number of female artists featured on Wikipedia
- Increasing the number of LGBT and queer artists featured on Wikipedia
Why have a Wikimedian in Residence with SLIC? For those of you who haven't yet heard of the residency, the post was first advertised by SLIC in May 2017. The aims of the residency are to help position public libraries in Scotland as quality content creators of free and open access information on Scottish culture. Sara Thomas delivered phase one of the residency which was completed in April 2018 before moving on to a new post as the Wikimedia Coordinator for Scotland. I have now taken over from Sarah for phase two of the residency and I will keep you posted with my progress.
