*1Lib1Ref - Start with adding sources on Wikidata! *
In 2019 IFLA started a working group on Wikidata and Wikibase of motivated
professionals. This group aims to coordinate actions, events and
preparation of documents to leverage Wikidata and Wikibase in support of
documenting collections and support capacity building in linked data,
structured data, and cataloguing work.
From 15 May to 5 June 2021, the Wikimedia Foundation
will again launch
to invite library staff and their audiences to improve the reliability of
sources in Wikipedia.
In order to support those interested in expanding this movement by offering
a multitude of tools to contribute to the Wikipedia #1Lib1Ref campaign
Wikidata and Wikibase Working Group offers the possibility for 50
participants to attend a Train-The-Trainers workshop on the 21st of April
at 16:00 CET to learn how to set up an event to contribute to Wikidata
during the campaign period.
We will also provide resources that can help you learn how to edit on
Wikidata, and show the advantages that Wikidata provides for improved
discoverability of library collections.
Details and registration can be found here: https://www.ifla.org/node/93813
