This session will combine several ideas and speakers around data partnerships. Anyone who thinks about data partnerships from a data donation to Wikidata to a Wikibase instance at a GLAM partner is welcome to join us.
First, Wikimedia Deutschland's software development teams will present the recently drafted model for data partnerships:
What makes a data partnership different from other kinds of partnerships in the Wikimedia movement? What phases does a data partnership have and what’s the decision process behind it? What types of data partnerships are there, how do we plan a sustainable data partnership project, monitor it and allocate resources to it?
We have compiled our model for data partnerships at Wikimedia Deutschland and would like to share it with you.
In the second part, participants will present on two cases of data partnerships:
The German National Library (DNB) maintains the Gemeinsame Normdatei (GND), the Integrated Authority File for the German-speaking world of libraries. Working within the Wikiverse isn’t new for the German National Library: Since 2008 volunteer Wikipedia editors have been working with the DNB to fix errors in the Authority File. But now the German National Library takes the GND one step further into the wikified Linked Open Data Web: By exploring Wikibase, the software behind Wikidata, as a platform for the GND. Follow us on our journey through libraryland and the world of Linked Data. We’ll tell you about the project that brings a Federal agency and Wikimedia software (and culture!) together. Join us to learn about where we are now, how we have come there, and what we have learned about national libraries and Wikibase along the way!
Open Cities - Linking Data in Sustainable Cities and Communities - Imagine your city as a wiki — what would you do with the data available on mobility, schools and daycare centers, the environment and more? What would you need to get most out of public data sources like Open Government Data and Wikidata? We want your thoughts and ideas about opportunities and barriers provided by data and how we can link data for the benefit of all of us in open cities. After a short introduction of where we come from (Open Data Düsseldorf and the Wikidata team of Wikimedia Deutschland) we want to listen to, discuss and collect your ideas for the future of modern living environment.
Panelists will be available for questions and discussion in the third part of the session.
