Structured Data on Commons updates
Structured Commons at Wikimania 2018
The GLAM team will attend Wikimania in Cape Town, with quite a few presentations and sessions that are related to the upcoming Structured Data on Commons. Join us!
Workflow for data and media partnerships, covered at Learning Days of Wikimania 2018.
- During Learning Days, there is a 90-minute session on structured data and Wikidata partnerships, highlighting the main elements in a workflow for such a partnership, common tips, and an overview of software tools that can help during such a project.
- Structured Data on Commons is a focus area of the Wikimania hackathon, where we will do some work on modelling files and will be brainstorming about the most important properties and metadata that should be part of structured Commons files.
- On Friday 20 July, several sessions about Commons and Structured Data take place as part of the main conference program. There is a session about the research that has been done about GLAMs' use of Wikimedia Commons, and a 90-minute block of general information about the project, together with a panel of projects that deal with knowledge equity on Wikimedia Commons, followed by a design discussion.
IRC office hour log
On Tuesday 26 June, a IRC office hour about Structured Data on Commons took place. It included some discussion about GLAM pilot projects. You can read the log at https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/IRC_office_hours/Office_hours_2018-06-26
In July, there is a community consultation on Wikimedia Commons, which collects possible properties for media files that will contain structured data on Commons. People with a GLAM interest in this topic are very welcome to contribute.
Other Wikimania news!
Wikimania looks like it will include a diverse and well represented group of GLAM-Wiki presentations. The GLAM-Wiki Team at the Foundation will probably be attending a range of different sessions; here are some highlights, that we think would be useful to any GLAM organizer:
