Session recording

Since June 2019, Stanford library staff have met weekly to build skills and work on projects related to Wikidata. This presentation will provide an overview of the structure and format of the working group, and discuss the challenges and opportunities for librarians working in Wikidata that the group's activities have surfaced. Topics covered will include data models, remediation (particularly of external identifiers in Wikidata), and documentation. The presentation will share lessons learned from the working group over the past year, and offer ideas for ongoing future collaboration and community-building across libraries and cultural heritage institutions in the Wikidata space. The intended audience is librarians and other cultural heritage professionals interested in working with Wikidata, whether as contributors, consumers, or both.
