PCC WikiData Pilot Project: Fun ‘n’ Learning: A report
By Jesse A Lambertson
Metadata & Digital Resources Librarian
D’Angelo Law Library (UChicago)

A few librarians from University of Chicago joined the PCC WikiData pilot project to learn: how Wikidata might help UChicago’s collection metadata, how to enhance LCNAF entries with WikiData IDs, about the WikiData community generally, and whatever else could not be planned for in advance. This short presentation will detail these goals as they were applied to the UChicago Library’s Middle East Photograph Archive metadata.
