Develop materials to support Australian GLAMs engagement with Wikidata Matthew Moore 2020-05-04 8000

Wikimedia Australia has a long history of working with the GLAM

(Galleries, Libraries, Archives, Museums) communities. Primarily these projects have focused on Wikipedia although there have been some examples of Wikidata projects. WMAU wants to build on those existing relationships to drive the uptake of the Wikidata platform.

Discussions with the Wikidata GLAM community and a review of the existing materials indicates that there are significant gaps in the resources to materials needed to facilitate this onboarding. In particular, more work is required to fill out:

- “Pre-upload” stages of GLAM institutional engagement (a value proposition, early stage planning, data identification and prioritisation); - “Impact” stages (measurement, benefits realisation). - Examples of existing content and engaged Australian institutions: - Data and media partnerships workflow - Integrating your bibliographic data with Wikidata from naught to aught

We would like to commission a content developer to build out the content within the existing framework and with Subject Matter Expert (SME) input from the global Wikidata community.

Simultaneously, we would work with the Australian Wikimedia community to identify suitable institutions to approach and test the materials in an iterative way.

We envisage the following timeline: - May - agree funding, advertise role, appoint content developer, commence engagement with global Wikidata and Australian Wikimedia communities. - May - develop content with SME input, commence testing with Australian Wikimedians and their GLAM contacts. - June - finalise v1.0 of Wikidata GLAM engagement content in multiple formats (Web, PDF, PowerPoint, demos).

Outcomes - A foundational set of globally reusable deliverables that can be further developed. - Content for webinars to brief the Wikimedia Australia community presenting to GLAMs about Wikidata - Improved relationships with Australian GLAM institutions. - Data from 5 new institutions to be identified as target datasets to be available via Wikidata, and pitch made to these GLAMs - Project report
