I'm a librarian who lives in Vermont. There is a Wikipedia page about me if you'd like to know more. Feel free to email me. I used to be a member of the Wikimedia Foundation advisory board back when that was a thing and before the whole page was memory-holed. (archived).

I am trying to help Wikipedia adjust its unequal treatment of female Wikipedians and Wikipedia articles about women. Want to read about the problem? This paper is a good start: Ms. Categorized: Gender, notability, and inequality on Wikipedia.

The work on state library associations is a deep dive into library history for which the profession has endless gratitude as will scholars of librarianship, students, and activists fighting for information access. Kmccook (talk) 15:37, 11 March 2020 (UTC)

Thank you for all your work on Wikipedia improving articles about women and their achievements, particularly with subjects with lesser visibility. Edit(s) like these do more than simple copy-editing – they show readers that articles about women are held to the same standards as other entries. Thank you.
