If Wikipedia aims to provide access to the sum of all human knowledge, Wikidata aims to structure it. The newest project of the Wikimedia movement, Wikidata is a collaboratively edited, free repository of linked open data that connects knowledge across all 301 language editions of Wikipedia and its sister projects. This workshop will introduce attendees to Wikidata and its applications to the digital humanities, with opportunities for hands-on editing.
This event is organized as part of NYCDH Week 2019.
