Wikidata and Oxford GLAMs
There has been less activity this month due to the Easter break. A lot of Bodleian images have been moved to a different server, so some time has been spent in bulk edits to Wikidata and Commons to reflect this rather than adding new content. At the Open Educational Resources Conference in Galway, Ireland, Martin gave a workshop on using Wikidata queries to explore issues of representation in online spaces such as Google Doodles or Project Gutenberg, with ideas from Dr Alice White. The main work this month has been internal advocacy of how Wikimedia volunteer work benefits the reach and profile of GLAM institutions.
A new page for the Oxford project gives some overviews of the including an animated video about how Wikidata can help with GLAM discovery and an article with examples of how Wikimedia volunteers raise awareness of the collections of the Ashmolean Museum of Art and Archaeology.
