  •   Support I would use this as part of this project to add agents from the Labor Archives of Washington to Wikidata. The project is being done as part of the UW's PCC Wikidata Pilot with the hope of demonstrating the value of Wikidata to local archivists. --Crystal Clements, University of Washington Libraries (talk) 22:01, 28 February 2021 (UTC)

  •   Support I think archives are interested in linked data in general (the SNAC project has been around for awhile) and this could help provide examples they would be very interested in and could use to generate institutional support. --Emwille (talk) 16:10, 3 March 2021 (UTC)
  •   Support I would use this as we begin to contribute data about our archival collections. Lrobare (talk) 19:30, 3 March 2021 (UTC)
