Description: 

Wikidata is a global collaboratively-edited knowledge base created by the Wikimedia Foundation. It was launched in 2012 to contain structured data (in the form of linked data) for use in other Wikimedia projects like Wikipedia and Wikimedia Commons. This presentation will outline how Wikidata has been used in GLAM institutions around the world, how UVic Libraries has begun to integrate it into its archival and library metadata workflow, and discuss benefits and challenges related to Wikidata involvement.
