BCMA Webinar: Online Collections – Increasing Education & Outreach through Wikidata and the WikiCommons

January 10, 2024/ 12-1:30 PM (PST)

Join the BCMA and speakers Victoria Stasiuk and Navino Evans for this exciting conversation about Wikidata and WikiCommons! Learn how museums and galleries have uploaded their public domain online collections images to the Wikicommons as well as more detailed information on Wikidata. Explore case examples of how museums and galleries can use this information in education, outreach, and volunteer engagement strategies.

Victoria will introduce us to the Wiki Wednesday Digital Literacy for GLAM (Galleries, Libraries, Archives, and Museums) project and webinar series. Navino Evans will provide us with visualizations and knowledge graph demos that can increase engagement beyond the structured data user interface.
