Hello! My name is Jessica Ouvrard (talk) and I am a librarian working at Library and Archives Canada. I live in Ottawa, but grew up in Montreal and lived for many years in Halifax. I have been an inactive member of Wikipedia since 2006, but I am now joining the Wikipedia community in a more official capacity and hope to contribute more as the Wikipedian in Residence at Library and Archives Canada to various Wikipedia initiatives through the Library and Archives Canada GLAM page.

Conflict of Interest Statement[edit]

I, User:Ouvrard, am an employee of Library and Archives Canada (LAC), 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 activities will focus on the following areas:

  • Updating project pages related to the LAC GLAM pages.
  • Adding material to the Wikimedia Commons and/or WikiSource.
  • Compiling lists of resources - photographic or textual - that could be digitized during scanathons to strengthen stub or missing articles on Canadian topics.

This list is probably incomplete and will change as the role is new and evolving within the institution.

Should my activities conflict with Wikipedia's stated practices on neutrality, notability or conflict of interest, I will change my editing behaviour accordingly and I encourage others to reach out to discus these with me through my talk page. Ouvrard (talk) 20:26, 27 September 2017 (UTC)
