Bringing Indiana Libraries and their Collections to Wikidata

Event Date: 
Tuesday, August 21, 2018 -
10:00 to 15:00
Event Location: 
IUPUI University Library - UL 1130

IUPUI University Library is hosting a Wikidata workshop on August 21 from 10:00 A.M. to 3:00 P.M. Let’s make sure we put your library on the map!

A growing number of cultural heritage institutions are contributing their curated data to Wikidata. Sharing data about collections not only enables new research and creative projects, but also helps researchers find an institution’s collections.

Wikidata is the newest project of the Wikimedia Foundation, the organization that also sponsors Wikipedia, the online encyclopedia. Wikidata is a free multilingual knowledge base which aims to serve as the hub for structured linked data for all Wikimedia projects. It provides an open and global platform for data sharing.

Wikidata affiliates data about collections with the library or museum that holds the items. However, if the library or museum is not already represented in Wikidata, data about the collection is invisible. Thus, every Indiana library needs a Wikidata entry.

During this workshop, we will give an overview of Wikidata, talk about the involvement of other libraries with this project, show external tools used to display Wikidata’s data, and demonstrate how to create an entry for your library and collections.

No prior experience using any Wiki project is necessary. Lunch will be provided. To participate, please fill out the registration form found at https://goo.gl/forms/oVi3ib8Y21zwGClS2 by August 13, 2018.
