This year’s ARLIS/NA Digital Humanities Special Interest Group (DH-SIG) Business Meeting will focus on Wiki* projects—including Wikidata, Wikibase, Wikipedia, and Wikimedia Commons—in the context of art and architecture libraries.


The first half hour of the business meeting will feature lightning talks by five ARLIS/NA members. Each will briefly touch on an aspect of the Wikidata projects underway at their respective institutions. The lightning talks will be followed by a half-hour of open discussion.


We hope to hear from attendees about how they’re currently using Wiki* platforms and/or ideas they have for future projects while considering ways the DH-SIG could help foster a community for ARLIS/NA members working on Wiki* projects.


Attendees may also be interested in the related workshop hosted by the DH-SIG at the annual conference, “Wikidata for Art Librarians,” scheduled for Monday, May 10, 2:30–4:30pm ET. You can add-on the workshop when registering for the conference at:
