Librarian working to improve Wikipedia and make editing Wikipedia a more achievable goal.


Conflict of Interest Statement from 2020[edit]

I, User:Fernmother, am an employee of Smith College Special Collections, 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 Smith College Special Collections

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. --Fernmother (talk) 15:07, 1 May 2020 (UTC)
