About me

Hello! My name is Bukola James and this is my user page. I go by "Bukky" in real life, but often by "Bukola" online. People sometimes assume that "Bukky" is just a nickname for "Bukola", but it's actually my shortened first name. I joined Wikipedia in 2020 as a passionate free knowledge, and SDGS 4 Advocate. I'm a Librarian, Researcher, Infopreneur and Indexer. I offer research assistance, help authors index their books, compile bibliographies, references and curate video contents. I have actively participated in several contests and campaigns that promote and create visibility for African-related contents, enhance articles, create Wikidata items and promote visibility for African Scholars on the online encyclopedia. I am also a certified Trainer (Eduwikimedian) of the Reading Wikipedia in the Classroom Program, and Certified Content Campaign Organiser. I am proud of being part of the Wikipedia community, and I am grateful for what it has offered to millions of people worldwide.

Wikipedia Journey

I joined Wikipedia during the covid-19 lockdown in May 2020 through the 1lib1ref campaign organised by the African Library and Information Associations and Institutions for the first online African Librarians Week.
