The Betty & Gordon Moore Library


Since its foundation in 2012, Wikidata, the database attached to Wikipedia, has grown steadily. It started life as an index to all Wikipedias, across hundreds of languages. It has become one of the most active sites in the constellation realising the concept of “semantic Web”. It is also easy to edit, and is a versatile resource with numerous applications. The talk element of this session will touch briefly on major aspects of Wikidata and some of the ways it is used, with an additional Q&A section. There will also be a free sandwich lunch.

After the initial talk, there will be a 2 hour hands-on session to help you understand more about how Wikidata works. Please bring your own device and sign up for a Wikipedia account before the session.

This session has now finished. If you would like us to repeat it, please let us know
