GLAM-Wiki, Wikidata, and Global Knowledge

Alex Stinson

How do heritage and memory communities share collections, research and expertise with a broad public? The most mission aligned and visible internet platforms for doing this are Wikipedia and its sister projects which include the linked-open data platform Wikidata and free-media platform Wikimedia Commons. Alex Stinson will talk about the opportunities and challenges reflected in the global GLAM-Wiki community, especially as it relates to the two key trends happening in the Wikimedia community: a turn towards structured data, through Wikidata, and the challenge of creating a equitable global representation of knowledge.
