Wikidata Institute – Fall 2024

Want to join the open data movement? Join an upcoming Wikidata Institute course.

As powerful tools for open-linked data, Wikidata and Wikibase have extensive applications across industries and sectors – spanning research and professional fields. Discover how your institution can benefit from the ever-growing possibilities of linked data by joining one of our upcoming online courses. We’ll meet twice a week for three weeks.

“The Wikidata Institute exposed to me to so many opportunities that Wikidata offers, for the work I do, for the research that interests me, and for the ways in which I can make my work more visible to others. While I knew a bit about Wikidata before I started the course, the course — and the peers I met in it — showed me many new avenues and opportunities that I will now pursue.” – former participant
