REMINDER for upcoming TSRT Training: Exploring the Use of Wikidata: Highlights of a Sabbatical Project.  Below are the details:
Hi fellow OLA members,
The TSRT wants to welcome you all to an engagement opportunity presented to you from the Technical Services Round Table: Exploring the Use of Wikidata: Highlights of a Sabbatical Project. This session will be presented by Lori Robar of the University of Oregon Libraries and active steering committee member of the TSRT.  The session details are as follows:

Wikidata is a knowledge base of structured, open linked data - multilingual and collaboratively edited. It supports Wikipedia and serves as a linking hub for identifiers. As libraries begin to transition from MARC-based bibliographic data to linked data and from authority control to identity management, Wikidata provides interesting opportunities for collaboration that may enrich Wikidata and benefit library discovery. This session will describe a sabbatical project to explore the use of Wikidata as an approach to identity management, raise the profile of people and organizations important to Oregon by creating structured data about them and their works in Wikidata, and explore the feasibility of using Wikidata as a platform for publishing and linking library authority data. The session includes a live demo of creating items for a person and a book and resources for getting started with contributing to Wikidata.

The presentation is scheduled for November 6th at 11:00 A.M. through zoom (details below).  Please plan to attend this information session and learn the details of Wikidata.

OLA vmeeting is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.
