Linked data for libraries with Wikibase — using the software behind Wikidata for open library data with examples from all around the world

Session recording (Due to technical difficulties, the audio doesn't start until 2 minutes in to the recording.)

In 2012, the Wikidata project started to give all human beings access to the sum of all Linked Data. The software behind it, Wikibase, has gained some interest in recent years. National libraries such as the Deutsche Nationalbibliothek in Germany or the Bibliothèque nationale de France have evaluated Wikibase with its unique set of features that it inherits from Wikidata: items, properties, a flexible and powerful data model, and the ability to run a SPARQL endpoint for the Linked Open Data Web out of the box. We will give you an overview of how librarians use Wikibase today, what's on the roadmap for the future, and how you can set up your own instance of Wikibase to open up your library data.
