Good afternoon and happy Thursday,
At Wiki Education we’re continuing to serve our community during the COVID-19 pandemic. We know you’re likely adjusting to a new routine of working from home and may be looking for virtual projects and networking opportunities, especially after upcoming conferences may have been cancelled. With our tried and tested online training infrastructure, we truly believe we can offer you and your colleagues an online project with real institutional impact that complements your new work environment.
April 15 – May 20, 2020 | Elevate your Collection | Wednesdays at 9am PST
Does your GLAM institution have a special collection or focus you wish the world knew more about? By sharing related institutional data on Wikidata, the open data repository behind Wikipedia, you can use your institution’s unique identifier to bring exposure to your data, drive traffic to your website, and situate your institution as a leader with that collection. With online meetings once a week via Zoom, Elevate your Collection will give you one-on-one coaching from our Wikidata experts, the chance to conceptualize online projects for your institution, and a network of your peers cheering you on.
“Using Wikidata to enhance and build our oral history project’s structured knowledge base allows the collection to continue to be more utilized, valued, and fulfill the project’s goals.” – Jake Kubrin, Metadata Librarian at the Stanford Law School Robert Crown Library. Read more….
If your members have shifted to more online work, or if a conference they planned to attend this spring is now cancelled, we hope our online courses can help them continue to meet institutional goals and allow them to stay in touch with their constituents where they are… online.
During this difficult time, we are offering group discounts and financial aid for anyone who does not have access to professional development funds. Check out our registration form linked above for more details about the course and our financial services. You may also email me at any time with questions.
