Hello, everyone –

We have our next LD4 Wikidata Affinity Group Call on Tuesday, February 21, 2023 at 9am PT / 12pm ET / 17:00 UTC / 6pm CET (Time zone converter<>). Jim Hahn and John Mark Ockerbloom will present on Penn Libraries Linked Data Vision:
This presentation will introduce the University of Pennsylvania Libraries Linked Data Vision (<>), and describe our experiences developing and implementing it. Our vision document defines a framework for activities and goals around linked data, involving both existing standards and systems as well as new desired functionality that linked data may help us address. We will share successes in carrying out the linked data vision, and also discuss areas where we have not yet made progress. We will also discuss some of our projects with Wikidata tie-ins, including our Digital Scriptorium Wikibase project, our Deep Backfile copyright information project, and other Wikidata enhancement projects. We hope to have ample time for conversation with those interested in or working on bringing new functionality to their libraries with linked data.
The call details are below. If you aren't able to attend, the meetings are recorded and meeting notes are available on Google Drive<>. To receive notifications about upcoming calls and meeting notes you can subscribe to the ld4-wikidata Google Group<>.

The LD4 Wikidata Affinity Group is associated with the LD4 Community and investigates how libraries can contribute to and better integrate library metadata with Wikidata to improve access to library resources on the web. The Affinity Group calls provide an informal space to share information and learn more about Wikidata.
