Alex Jung[edit]

Wikipedian-in-Residence, University of Toronto Libraries

About Me[edit]

I am a paid employee of the University of Toronto Libraries from October 2018 to April 2019, serving in the library's newly-created Wikipedian in Residence role. The relevant project page will be uploaded shortly. I am a Masters student in Political Science at the University of Toronto with research interests in open data, participatory democracy, and digital government. I also help organise Toronto's Civic Tech community. Previously, I studied Fundamentals: Issues & Texts and International Studies at the University of Chicago. My interdisciplinary undergraduate research drew from epistemology, pragmatic ethics, anthropology, and critical media and gender studies.

Conflict of Interest Statement[edit]

As a member of the Wikipedia community participating with an accepted professional affiliation, I am committed to observing Wikipedia's policies and guidelines on conflicts of interest, verifiability, neutrality, and notability. The Wikipedian-in-Residence position was created by the University of Toronto Libraries under the institution's mission to "foster the search for knowledge and understanding in the University and the wider community"[1]. Through the initiative, the Library aims to make its publicly accessible Collections more readily available to the Wikipedia community. All work executed in this role will openly and publicly benefit Wikipedia users.
