How do heritage and memory communities share collections, research and expertise with a broad public? The most mission aligned and visible internet platforms for doing this are Wikipedia and its sister projects which include the linked-open data platform Wikidata and free-media platform Wikimedia Commons.

2:00pm to 5:00pm
Lathrop Library 370

Free and open to all Stanford affiliates.
Registration required (limited to 25 participants): Introduction to Wikidata

In this workshop, Alex Stinson will introduce how Wikidata, a linked open database describing over 42 million concepts, works and can be used to advance cultural heritage and research projects.
