I've had a lot of interest (during workshops, etc) about the potential of
Wikidata, both from librarians and from researchers; there's a general
sense that it'll be very interesting, but no-one's quite sure what they'll
be able to do with it :-)
We'll be having a Wikidata session at GLAM-Wiki, but of course not everyone
is happy to come along to a short session on a Friday afternoon as part of
a larger conference. To get around this, I've organised an introductory
workshop at the BL on 26th April, 2-5pm.
All welcome - my targeted audience is librarians & digital-humanities
types, but if you're a Wikimedian who's interested in figuring out what's
going on with the new project, please do come along!
Conversely, if you're comfortable using/understanding Wikidata, and you'd
like to come along and help me *give* the workshop, please do let me know
:-). I'm reasonably comfortable with talking about it, but I'm aware there
are some gaps...
