The LD4 Wikidata Affinity Group began in April 2019 as a community discussion space with calls every two weeks open to anyone to learn more about how libraries can contribute to and benefit from Wikidata. Recently, the Group started hosting regular virtual Wikidata Working Hours every two weeks as well. These have been a time for participants to spend an hour working in Wikidata either on their own projects or on tasks related to a specific topic chosen for that session. This session is a chance for a virtual meet-up to do hands-on work adding references to Wikidata. Wikidata relies on references for data quality and librarians are seen as important collaborators within the Wikimedia community for providing reliable sources. This Wikidata Working Hour will give participants tools, resources, and examples necessary to participate in the campaign and add references to Wikidata and perhaps even host an event at their own institution after the conference. People with all levels of Wikidata experience are welcome to attend!

Please write your questions in the Google doc (bit.ly/LD4Conf2020Wikidatafor the Wikidata track.
