I'm involved in outreach for the Wikimedia projects, including Wikisource. I've previously done this in my role as Wikimedia Ambassador for the educational charity Jisc.

From April 2015 to March 2016 I was the Wikimedian In Residence at the Bodleian Libraries, Oxford. This involved paid editing on the Wikimedia projects (to share content from the Bodleian and elsewhere in Oxford University). I am also using this account for volunteer editing.

My "home" wiki is the English Wikipedia. My profile there lists my publications about Wikimedia.

My profile on Wikimedia UK lists the workshops and presentations I've given for or about Wikimedia.

I'm interested in meta:Wikisource Community User Group.

Volunteer work[edit]

Awards for participation

The feminism portal struck me as quite scant when I first saw it, so I have been adding some essential texts.

I'd like to expand Wikisource's collection of humour, especially of Victorian England, so these sources appeal:

Other works I'm interested in:
