#WikiWednesdays - November 2022 - March 2023

#WikiWednesdays are cohosted by Victoria Stasiuk and Navino Evans

Wiki-Wednesdays is a free online monthly learning session designed to help GLAM (Galleries, Libraries, Archives, and Museums) professionals understand how art galleries and museums can use linked open data (LOD) to raise awareness of their organizations and artists.

Funded by the Wikimedia Foundation, these sessions are cohosted by Victoria Stasiuk and Navino Evans from Histropedia.

 

Join our Group for Free!

We gather the first Wednesday of every month (from 12 pm to 1 pm EST) to demonstrate how to use Wikimedia resources and wiki data editing to build knowledge graphs.

For our initial phase from November 2022 to March 2023, we will be focusing on female visual artists that produced works at the same time as the Group of Seven.

If you’ve missed our second session on December 7, 2022, you can register for our next session below, January 4, 2023, February 1, 2023, and March 1, 2023.

Our scope is women’s biographies, women’s works, and women’s issues, broadly construed.

Our objective is to turn red links into blue ones

CRKN is providing a spreadsheet outlining interim subject headings developed as a stop-gap measure while a national vocabulary is being established. 

The goal of this spreadsheet is to provide greater transparency to our work and to aid cataloguers pursuing decolonization and equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI) initiatives at their own institutions. 

This spreadsheet is a living document and should not be considered exhaustive or definitive. It will be updated as language changes, or as an updated national vocabulary is created.   CKRN encourages comments and feedback on this document.

Decolonizing Canadiana Metadata: An Overdue Step in Removing Harmful Subject Headings

This page will cover all the projects and events undertaken by LAC as part of its collaboration with the GLAM initiative. Using our vast collection, we will be focusing on sharing resources to enhance, enrich and fill the knowledge gap within Wikimedia projects.

LAC’s collection includes a large number of books (more than 20 million in several languages), images (almost 30 million including photographs, prints and digital images), films (over 90 thousand including documentaries as well as silent, short and full-length films), newspaper archives, sheet music, drawings, plans, maps and other materials.

Solutions and Strategies for Cultural Organizations

Key aspects of this example to highlight:

  1. The Baroque Orchestra of Catalana used a heritage site. Santa Maria del Mar was built between 1329 and 1383.

  2. This project involved the public outreach of 352 people with excellent technology provided by Igor Studio.
     
  3. The youtube video provides inspirational programming for us all during the Covid pandemic protocols.

#ISing Hallelujah is a participative digital project that has brought together more than 350 people performing the ‘Hallelujah’ chorus from Handel’s Messiah from their homes.

A total of 352 people between the ages of 14 and 82 were encouraged to live the experience of performing this masterpiece of the symphonic-choral repertoire by sending their recordings.
