About me

Hello world ! I am Ourytima, a librarian who graduated from the School of Librarians, Archivists and Documentalists (EBAD) of the University Cheikh-Anta-Diop (UCAD), in Senegal. I work at the library of the French Institute of Senegal in Dakar. I am a member of the Senegalese Association of Librarians, Archivists and Documentalists (ASBAD) and the International Francophone Association of Librarians and Documentalists (AIFBD). I am a passionate librarian who fights for access to information and advocacy for the valorisation of libraries.

My work

I started contributing to Wikipedia in May 2020 as part of The Wikipedia Library/1Lib1Ref campaign (one librarian, one reference) with a training proposed by IFLA (International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions). This campaign was an opportunity for me to contribute to Wikipedia and its sisters projects and to be interactive as a Wikimedian. I was able to participate again in the #1Lib1ref project with Aflia (African Library and Information Associations and Institutions)in 2021 as a trainee and in 2022, this time as a country organizer, in Senegal with other members.

Since the beginning of 2022 I have also been involved in other projects:
