Hello! That's an awesome idea.

How do you envision this? Would it be some kind of context (which means tracking the edits in some way), or just a communication operation to encourage librarians to participate?

A first step would be to add more information to the page, for example a more detailed description of the tasks, maybe some links to help pages (thinking of people who don't have a lot of experience with Wikidata yet). You could also add a "participants" section so people can sign up.

You could run the operation before the birthday, and present the results as a birthday gift, like people from Sum of all Indian paintings. Another option is to kickstart the operation during the birthday. In both cases, you can create an entry in the calendar or facilitate a slot on this topic during the 24-hours meetup.

And finally, you will need to communicate about the operation to get people onboard: WikiProjects, the facebook group "Wikidata + GLAM" and the Wikidata mailing-list seem to be good place to announce the operation and get people onboard.

How does that sound? :)

Hi. I added some english translation of my german SLUBlog post.

I hope to encourage #MenschenInBibliotheken -- librarians and all others -- people in libraries: working, studiing, researching. making, playing ... Will think about your questions! Please feel free to add more ideas. :)

+1 To be honest: max. participants or max. item edits can't be the goals für ''1Lib1nearby'' in 2020. I would prefer max. blog posts (in max. languages) sharing the idea and user experiences by using Special:Nearby. I will publish in https://de.hypotheses.org, it would be great if others could spread the word ... #1Lib1Nearby -- the Wikimedia*s, Wikidata*crowds, 1Lib1Ref-Communities ... :)

Viele Grüße

Hi Lea,

... more ''1Lib1Nearby'' visuals would be great too ... to catch ''up 1Lib1Ref'' of! ;) Perhaps somebody has ideas for ''Wikidata:Special:Nearby'' visialisations, with or without library or GLAM associations.

How does that sound? :)

For logos like File:Wikidata_8th_birthday_logo_dark.png, it'd be best to include a white border to text to enhance readability when elements overlap (see example here)

You can do this with to the SVG easily in inkscape by setting a stroke colour to 'white', width to '20px', and order to 'stroke-fill-marker'.

If you save them as svg files on commons, it's also easy for others to edit them for you.

Hope that helps!
