#WikiWednesdays Resources from Series One

Series 1 – WikiWednesday was funded by a rapid grant from the Wikimedia Foundation. This project ran from November 2022 to March 2023.

Key Concept

Details

Name of site & link

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 covers all the projects and events undertaken by Library and Archives Canada, LAC as part of its collaboration with the GLAM initiative. Using their collection, they focus 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.
