Abstract (How) Can Wikidata help you to spread information about your museum collection?
Detailed proposal PACKED vzw is a Belgian Centre of Expertise in Digital Heritage (non-profit). Currently we're running a project involving 7 museums (of contemporary and fine arts) whereby we're helping them to create persistent URI's for over 34.000 works of art they hold in their collections. Wikidata's Q-numbers have been used in one of the first project phases to identify artists having a Wikipedia page, and adding this info to the artwork record in the museum's system. We're now looking to not just enrich the museums' data, but also contribute it back to the Wiki community. Our aim is to submit the persistent URIs about these works of art to Wikidata. This would also allow the museums to publish Linked Open Data about their collection through an already existing infrastructure, while also enriching Wikipedia. The data would act as a placeholder on the work of art, eventually paving the way for actual content (not just data) contribution to Wikimedia. In this pitch session we want to a) explain our project proposal b) learn from Wikidata experienced users how we could go about handling this c) get to know Wikimedia-community people who want to work with us on realising this project (and yes, we have some funding).
None of these above
