Wikidata Resources edit

Practical Wikidata for Librarians edit

The goal of the project is to gather together, organize, and expand resources for librarians interested in editing Wikidata, and to provide a space to develop shared data models and best practices. The hope is that sharing these resources will prevent duplicative work at different institutions, and provide stepping stones for librarians interested in working with Wikidata but seeking some direction on where to get started

At each meeting, the co-facilitators, Alex Jung, Sarah Kasten, Susan Radovsky, Hilary Thorsen and Eric Willey, or a guest will present some relevant material related to the topic and we’ll discuss any issues members have encountered as well as helpful resources.
