Hello all,

I'm a new Wikimedian in Residence as part of the Linked Data for Production project<>. One of the goals of the project is understanding how libraries can contribute to and leverage Wikidata as a platform for publishing, linking, and enriching library linked data. A number of institutions that are part of the grant are working on projects involving Wikidata and we decided to start an interest group with biweekly meetings to discuss various aspects of Wikidata in support of the projects. Possible topics include Wikidata best practices, documentation, communication channels, policies, and tools.

At each meeting, myself or a guest will present some relevant material related to the topic and we’ll discuss any issues members have encountered as well as helpful resources. Our next meeting is Tuesday, May 7, 2019 at 9am PST / 12noon EST / 5pm GMT / 6pm CET.

The Affinity Group is open to anyone interested, so feel free to share this invitation. The call details and communication channels are below.
