Wikidata 101

Wikidata 101 In-Person

Wikidata is one of the most widely available tools freely available to us. It powers Wikipedia and links together data from all over the internet, gathering it together in one searchable space. Can it be used in your work or research? What purpose does it serve? And how can you contribute to it? How should you contribute to it?

Join us to learn about linked data, the ethics of gathering and using it in our work, and how linked data can help us to fill in blanks and gaps in marginalized subject areas.

Bring your laptop and get a crash course in how to create and edit Wikidata or edit on your own.

Snacks will be provided!
