Navigating Wikidata and Archival Description in Canada - A Panel Discussion
University and College Archives Special Interest Section (UCASIS)
Archival institutions’ enthusiasm for Wikidata has surged in recent years, as repositories have invested resources into the platform as a way of supporting authority control, vocabularies, and collections discovery and promotion. This panel will explore how archival institutions in Canada are adopting Wikidata as a low barrier, easy-to-learn tool to create linked open data for archival resources. This panel will discuss and explore their motivations, project management workflows, challenges, and lessons learned as they navigated the world of structured and linked open data.
This event has been organized by UCASIS.
