About Me

My name is Neal Stimler. I am a GLAM advocate and seek to facilitate connections between archives, libraries, museums and Wikimedians. My contributions focus on collaboratively building projects, adding citations, data and digital assets. Leave a message on my talk page. I am a consultant.

I had an over ten-year career at W:The Metropolitan Museum of Art, where I collaborated with User:Pharos and Wikimedia New York City for Metropolitan Museum of Art's first Wikimedia in Residence. In Auckland, New Zealand, I served as the inaugural Head of Public Engagement at W:Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tāmaki from 2017-2018.

I worked with W:The Cleveland Museum of Art to further engagement with Wikimedia communities. This work has been done in collaboration with User:Madreiling, User:Fuzheado, User:Multichill, and User:Dominic. I am grateful for their support. You can now find images from the collection of The Cleveland Museum of Art[1] on Wikimedia Commons. I also guided W:The Smithsonian Institution on their open access program, including recommendations on Wikimedia strategies.

Conflict of Interest Statement

I, User:Nealstimler, a consultant, work with cultural institutions per GLAM. I accept the editing conditions specified at that page. I will not make edits that would not be beneficial to the goals of Wikimedia.

My main edits tend to consist of the following activities:

  • Adding authoritative citations, data, and digital assets to improve the quality of existing Wikimedia platforms.
  • Updating project pages related to GLAM and partner GLAM institutions.

I will modify my editing behavior based on problems cited by other editors or if my editing conflicts with other Wikimedia guidelines. I ask that other editors contact me, via my user talk page, if I appear to be going against this declaration. I appreciate all those helping me with my contributions.
