I'm a metadata librarian. I aim to contribute useful information to Wikidata in accordance with best practices identified by the community, and I welcome constructive feedback.


For work beginning now, I'm hoping to use OpenRefine to reconcile values in tabular data with Wikidata items. This is something people do, right? Shouldn't be too hard... I'm starting here.


Helped to organize and participated in Editing as Activism, Edit-A-Thon to Correct Systemic Bias in Wikipedia at the University of Washington Libraries Research Commons. The event was co-sponsored by the UWL Research Commons, The Labor Archives of Washington, and the Cascadia Wikimedians.


I'm currently helping to publish RDF data about some of our collections, for example the Alaska-Yukon-Pacific Exposition Collections. We are creating links to Wikidata resources wherever possible to increase the exposure of University of Washington Libraries' Semantic Web Data.
