Hello, everyone --

We have our next LD4 Wikidata Affinity Group Call on Tuesday, May 31, 2022 at 9am PT / 12pm ET / 16:00 UTC / 6pm CEST (Time zone converter<>). Felicia Smith, Nicole Coleman, and Akosua Kissi (Stanford Libraries) will be sharing a project in development called Know Systemic Racism (KSR)<>. It helps users discover factual data about systems shaped by racist policies and take action against them by connecting them with groups that address systemic racism. They are working on incorporating Wikidata into their project and will share this work in progress with us and are looking for feedback and advice on their process and schema. We hope you will join us to learn more about the project, especially if you have experience incorporating Wikidata into your own projects or are hoping to learn how to.

The call details are below. Everyone is welcome to attend. 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.
