Planning and starting large-scale Wikimedia projects can be daunting. Using the LD4 Wikidata Affinity Group and the Program for Cooperative Cataloging (PCC) Wikidata pilot as examples, this session will explore the integral role consistency plays in implementing large projects. Regularity in meetings, personnel, training, and finding answers to questions have been essential to the success of these projects so far. Future projects could benefit from a similar consistency-based model.

Session Outcomes

[edit | edit source]
  • Examples of large scale organization, gathering people, coordinating institutions
  • Sustained engagement, new editors, new content
  • Building out more structure - training, tools, personnel, and project workflows

I'm planning to attend this session live!
