BAAC conference 2018 - Wikimedia keynote


Published on

Keynote talk for the Baltic Audiovisual Archival Council conference 2018 - 7-9 November in Tallinn, Estonia
Presentation description:

Since the mid-2000s, cultural institutions around the world have worked together with Wikimedia volunteers in hundreds of collaboration projects. In these GLAM-Wiki projects, cultural organizations make their collections and specialized knowledge more widely accessible via the free encyclopedia Wikipedia and the free media repository Wikimedia Commons. In the past five years, Wikidata (Wikimedia's free, multilingual knowledge base) has gained a lot of influence in this area as well. As a very accessible and re-usable structured data and semantic web project, it has become a popular instrument for cultural institutions to publish collections as Linked Open Data, obtain multilingual data, place their collections in a much broader context, and enrich their collections with crowdsourced metadata. In 2017-19, Wikimedia Commons is also enhanced with structured data from Wikidata, with much improved APIs that make more smooth collaboration in GLAM-Wiki projects possible.

This keynote presentation provides a short overview of GLAM-Wiki collaborations and their impact, with special attention for the potential and use of Linked Open Data via Wikidata and via structured data on Wikimedia Commons. It includes examples of GLAM-Wiki projects by audiovisual archives and collections around the world.
