Login to the Event Dashboard with your Wikimedia account to keep track of your edits today

You're welcome to work on your own projects, but if you're looking for things to work on, consider working on editing and creating items related to Art + Feminism + Activism.

SpreadsheetEdit

We'll be working off of a spreadsheet today with a list of artists, activists, and organizations. This is not by any means comprehensive. Please add to the list if you would like.

Additionally, here is a spreadsheet that I made for editWikipedia4BlackLives earlier this week that you are welcome to work from. --Librarian lena (talk) 15:37, 12 June 2020 (UTC)
Lena shared an [https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1iewWl0CHoZLBAMBR26MntejwrQVkSf0D-9bj-AEwAuQ/edit#gid=0 updated spreadsheet] with us to work from.
And yet more additionally, here's a list of articles and other resources on "Disrupting Whiteness in Libraries and Librarianship". I'm interested in creating items for articles and books, especially older ones that aren't like to be creating by bots that work on recent journal articles, as well as their authors, where possible. --User:Fernsebner

Add your initials or some other marker to indicate that you are working on a person or organization in the "Initials" column.

If you can't find enough information about an entity to create an item or encounter another obstacle, you can add it to the "Notes" column.

ReferencesEdit

Most statements on Wikidata should be verifiable in some source of information. They point to a source that supports the data in a statement. References have a property and value like statements. The value is the source. The property is usually:

  stated in (P248) for publications and media
  reference URL (P854) for websites and online databases
References are not required in some circumstances:Edit
  • Statement represents common knowledge that isn’t disputed
 George Washington (Q23)instance of (P31)human (Q5)
  • Statement refers to an external source of information that can be easily verified
 Mary Jo White (Q6779939)ISNI (P213)0000 0000 4948 7201
  • Item itself is a source for the statement
References for WebsitesEdit

The most common sources in Wikidata are probably websites. Use reference URL (P854) with the website as the value and retrieved (P813) with the date you accessed the website.
