Wiknics and Wikidata
Wikidata Workshop at IFLA-WLICAugust is a slow month for many in the United States, so we made our impact on the road.
Wikimedia DC member and Wikidata trainer Andrew Lih was in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia at the IFLA-WLIC 2018 conference to give a Wikidata workshop at the largest annual international gathering of librarians. The workshop (Google Slides) was attended by 40-50 attendees and was the first time Wikidata had been presented at that conference.
More info can be found in the Malaysia report.
