Hello everyone,

Our next biweekly LD4 Wikidata Affinity Group call is Tuesday, June 2nd at 9am PDT / 12pm EDT / 16:00 UTC / 6pm CEST. As my Wikimedian in Residence position ends at the end of June, I am hoping to find some co-facilitators to help lead the group going forward. As we plan for the future of the group, Ill be joined by Alex Jung, Wikimedian in Residence/Open Technology Specialist at the University of Toronto Libraries for a discussion about our current Wikidata needs and how the group might be able to contribute to addressing them. We hope that the discussion helps us all think through our Wikidata-related priorities. These are some of the questions we'll be considering:

  *   What workflows are you still figuring out?
  *   From a Wikidata perspective, what do you want to learn to do on Wikipedia (and other Wikimedia projects)?
  *   Are there any projects you are working on that you would be interested in sharing on a call?
  *   What other questions do you have regarding Wikidata--or adjacent Wikimedia projects?

Everyone is invited to help brainstorm!

As we're preparing for the discussion, it would be helpful if you could fill out this 3 minute survey:

The LD4-Wikidata Affinity Group is associated with the Linked Data for Production project<>. One of the goals of the project is understanding 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.
