State Library Queensland
The 2018 Wikidata Tour Down Under started on Tuesday 11 September 2018 at State Library Queensland, who had invited an audience of GLAM professionals to a presentation and workshop with Andy Mabbett, on Wikidata and its relationship to the GLAMscape. Andy's presentation covered:
What is Wikidata?
Why does the GLAM sector need to know about this?
Who verifies the quality of Wikidata?
How can my organisation contribute and how will this data be used?
Pru Mitchell and Andy engaged with participants and met with partner organisations in the exhibition hall, and Andy presented on Wikimedia and Open Science, as well as giving a lighting talk during the plenary session.
