Hello Everyone,  

We have our next LD4 Wikidata Affinity Group Call on Tuesday, May 30th 2023 at 9am PT / 12pm ET / 16:00 UTC / 6pm CEST (Time zone converter). We will discuss results from our community survey on advocacy for Wikidata in libraries and hear from community members Mary Aycock, Steve Baskauf and Eric Willey about their experiences with advocacy and gaining support for Wikidata work within their respective libraries.

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.
