I am an academic librarian who has worked for decades with students in biology, mathematics, history of science, etc. I'm trying to learn how to edit in Wikipedia so I can help students when their instructors give them assignments to improve content in specific subject areas. I am interested in contributing to Wikipedia articles too, but having trouble finding time to research and edit on topics that interest me.

In Fall 2012, I have begun to serve as a campus ambassador for Washington University in St. Louis where I work. I'm no longer very active with this. (2017)

I am eager to work with students, staff, researchers and faculty at Washington University in St. Louis. You can find good ways to contact me on my research guides:

I didn't help much but I'm very proud of the Wikipedia work which students in classes here at my university have done:

Conflict of interest statement[edit]

I, User:Rulew, am an employee of Washington University. I will sometimes edit pages with connections to Washington University or St. Louis (with sufficient secondary sources) but I will not make any edits that would not be beneficial to the goals of Wikipedia.

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. Rulew (talk) 14:50, 25 September 2017 (UTC)
