My name is Denise Smith. I am an academic health sciences librarian at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada and I research Wikipedia and consumer health information behaviour. I am instructor in McMaster's Bachelor of Health Sciences (BHSc) program and in Western University's Library and Information Science (MLIS) program.

Research interests and academics

  • I research Wikipedia as a health information resource and health information behaviour
  • I am (slowly) working towards becoming a more active editor on Wikipedia and Wikidata making any contributions of value that fall within my skill set or expertise
  • Feel free to ask me about my research interests or for comment on qualitiative research methods, systematic reviews, health librarianship and information/digital literacy
