Report

With a regional WikiCite event planned for Australia on Friday 14 February 2020, Wikimedia Australia hosted a small WikiCite seminar and discussion in Melbourne as part of DisruptEd 2019, RMIT University’s Learning & Teaching Conference.

Speakers included Alex Lum (Wikimedia Australia), Thomas Shafee (WikiJournal of Science) and Nicole Kearney (Biodiversity Heritage Library), who spoke about the exciting work underway using Wikidata to develop a bibliographic database and a knowledge graph of academic and literary citations.

Wikimedia Australia wishes to acknowledge the assistance of Leigh Blackall, and the generous support received from RMIT who provided the venue and catering as part of the DisruptEd Fringe.

A metrics dashboard was set up, however conversation rather than editing was the order of the day: https://outreachdashboard.wmflabs.org/courses/Wikimedia_Australia/WikiCite_Workshop_Melbourne_(Wednesday_9_October_2019)
