Linking the Art in the Christian Tradition Image Database to Wikidata (On Demand)

The presentation will begin with a general introduction to Wikidata and to the Art in the Christian Tradition (ACT) image database. We will provide a brief description of our experience linking artwork items in Wikidata and Wikimedia Commons to their corresponding records in the ACT database and will summarize some of the key points we have learned from the process. During the presentation, we will demonstrate how to make manual edits to Wikidata using its graphical interface, providing the participants with an opportunity to try it themselves. We will also discuss some of the software tools that can be used to increase the speed and effectiveness of editing. We will conclude by showing how entering information into Wikidata can improve the visibility and discoverability of collections data.

For more information about the presentation see the webpage of Wikidata: WikiProject Art in the Christian Tradition.
