WikiCite ANZ Conference: Linking bibliographic data

Date: Fri., 14 February 2020

Time: 9:00 am – 3:00 pm AEDT Add to Calendar

Location: Queen Victoria Women's Centre, The Victoria room, Level 4, 210 Lonsdale Street Melbourne View Map

Why should I attend: WikiCite is a project working to build a comprehensive knowledge base of sources, to support open, transparent and verifiable citation, fact-checking, and accuracy. Many Australian and New Zealand languages, authors, academics and subject areas are currently poorly served by Wikidata, Wikipedia and related projects. We need your expertise and help to fix this.

Audience: Wikimedians, educators, librarians, researchers and publishers, open access advocates

What to bring: Bring your laptop (wifi available).

Cost: Free to attend. Supported by WikiCite grant

Registration: Registration essential.

9.00am Welcome

9.10am WikiCite 101 Alex Lum, Wikimedia Australia

9.30am Keynote 1: Disambiguation, data and diversity Siobhan Leachman, Wikimedia User Group of Aotearoa New Zealand

Researchers, librarians and metadata folk all know the pain of disambiguation, particularly when dealing with authors of publications. This highly practical presentation uses Siobhan's work on women illustrators to highlight and explain data curation issues related to WikiCite workflows and how to solve them. What are the issues with ORCID IDs? How do we disambiguate dead people? How can we work with other institutions, such as VIAF and National libraries, to assist us in solving data issues in datasets? Learn about Scholia profiles and other tools that use Wikidata to enhance and link bibliographic metadata.

11.00am Morning tea

11.30am Keynote 2: Integrating your bibliographic data with Wikidata from naught to aught Dr Toby Hudson, The University of Sydney

The power of your data can be substantially magnified by linking and deeply integrating it with other data sources. Wikidata is the spine connecting data from all domains, and allowing anyone and everyone to connect their knowledge. It already operates at a giant scale that allows new types of questions to be answered and new types of tool to be built. This presentation will lay a pathway for you to contribute your data, integrate it with the existing corpus, and then reap the rewards of your efforts. We will take a high-level view of big data contributions, allowing constraint-checking and other cross-validation to locate any irregularities that need individual human inspection. Examples will be drawn from Australian bibliographic projects including: academic publication networks, grey literature, museum works and creators, and interactive multilingual educational glossaries.
