The March 2023 Working Hour will feature a presentation by Ross Spencer of Siegfried 


Using a custom Wikibase with Siegfried 

In 2020 Ross Spencer worked alongside the team at Yale University Library (Dr Kat Thornton, Euan Cochran) and Siegfried Developer Richard Lehane to develop an integration for the popular file format identification tool, and Wikidata. The work has also been expanded with a little careful configuration to enable the integration to work with custom Wikibases as well. In this LD4 Wikibase working hour Ross will describe the Siegfried/Wikidata/Wikibase integration in more detail; engagement between the digital preservation and wikidata community; and the benefits he sees in this work for the discipline. Ross is happy to field all and any questions about the work and is especially happy to receive questions in advance if there is anything specific anyone would like to see covered. 

Ross Spencer (He/Him/They) (https://orcid.org/0000-0002-5144-9794) is a part-time open source software developer, and full-time digital preservation specialist at Ravensburger AG based in Germany.
