Session recording

This workshop will introduce a number of tools and resources that make use of more complex and often underappreciated or underused features offered by Wikidata. It is intended to not only motivate the further exploration of Wikidata beyond what has been frequently encountered for its use and expansion, but also promote wide-ranging discussion of linked data's involvement in GLAM-related disciplines and beyond in nonstandard ways and the role Wikidata can play in these areas. Participants will get the opportunity to approach Wikidata as a multifaceted entity in which different modes of organization and interaction can accommodate the specific needs of disparate subject areas, and they will be able to make improvements in each of these modes. Throughout this workshop constructive discussion among the entire group about linked data usage and editing workflows (including tool choice and editing procedures for specific areas) will be encouraged.
By the end of the workshop, they will be able to
  • manually reconcile diverse catalogs with Wikidata items using mix'n'match,
  • use and contribute information about lexemes for their language of choice, and
  • use and contribute to the structured (meta)data of files on Wikimedia Commons.
There is an initial expectation that participants have some experience using Wikidata, no matter how little this may be (if there's an introductory Wikidata workshop at the conference, for example, then attending that will suffice!), but this workshop may be conducted in a way that accommodates those for whom this expectation does not hold. Beyond this, however, all conference attendees, whether with particularly GLAM-focused interests or otherwise, will be welcome to participate.
