We have our next LD4 Wikidata Affinity Group Call on Tuesday, July 27, 2021 at 9am PT / 12pm ET / 16:00 UTC / 6pm CEST (Time zone converter). Andra Waagmeester will be joining us to share work on using Shape Expressions in Wikidata to describe the genomics of the SARS-CoV-2 virus. The Shape Expression language is used to represent schemas in Wikidata. You may find this call helpful if you are interested in creating and using schemas for types of Wikidata items. 


The call details are below. Everyone is welcome to attend. If you aren't able to attend, the meetings are recorded and meeting notes are available on Google Drive. To receive notifications about upcoming calls and meeting notes you can subscribe to the ld4-wikidata Google Group.  


The LD4 Wikidata Affinity Group is associated with the LD4 Community and investigates how libraries can contribute to and better integrate library metadata with Wikidata to improve access to library resources on the web. The Affinity Group calls provide an informal space to share information and learn more about Wikidata.
