Mon., Feb. 13 / 10 - 11 a.m. - Wikidata BasicsIn this workshop we will describe what Wikidata is and used for; how it's connected to Wikimedia projects (such as Wikipedia); how it's leveraged by many other sites and services as a point of open data; and more importantly, an overview of how you can edit and use it.


Wed., Feb. 15 / 10 a.m. - 12 p.m. How to Get Wikidata Using SPARQL: This hands-on introductory workshop will provide an overview of item records in Wikidata, including how they are structured and described, and a demonstration on how to retrieve these items using the query language SPARQL.


Thurs., Feb. 16 / 2 - 3 p.m. - Using Library Collections for Computational ResearchThis workshop will introduce participants to both technical resources and ethical considerations for the reuse of library collections as research data. We will discuss the importance of metadata and documentation when using collections as data, and will look at one tool for computationally analyzing collections (HathiTrust Research Center Analytics). We will also explore some specific collections held by UCR Library that are available to use as data for historical research.


Fri., Feb. 17 / 10 a.m. - 1 p.m.Wikidata Edit-a-thon: Join us for a Wikidata edit-a-thon! This is a great opportunity to learn basic Wikidata editing skills, and how Wikidata can be relevant to your research. From 10 - 11am, we'll cover how to add and edit Wikidata items. From 11am until 1pm, you can choose your level of participation. Dive into some hands-on solo editing or ask questions. While you can bring your own data projects, we will have a project list, so everything you need to successfully edit or upload a Wikidata item will be provided during the session.
