Feedback form is now closed.
This workshop presented will introduce participants to Wikidata with a special focus on representing art information as linked data. Wikidata is a free, open, and multilingual knowledge base that serves as the structured data for Wikipedia and other Wikimedia projects. Art information professionals use Wikidata to visualize data about their collections, identify new research topics, understand historic trends, and enable worldwide access to their collections.

In this workshop intended for beginners, Wiki Education instructor Will Kent will address the fundamental concepts of Wikidata, how to start editing, and ways Wikidata can enhance the work of art libraries and other GLAM institutions (Galleries, Libraries, Archives, and Museums). Participants will also be introduced to Wiki Education’s training modules as well as other resources, useful tools, and opportunities to continue building their skills and collaborate with an active GLAM community on Wikidata.
