Abstract[edit | edit source]

A short and beginner-level introduction to Structured Data on Commons (3 minutes 43 seconds)
Slides from Giovanna Fontenelle and Dominic Byrd-McDevitt's presentation

The development of Structured Data on Commons, or SDC, took place between 2017 and 2019. Since then, it has been an important feature to make media files on Wikimedia Commons more discoverable and available for more people, in different languages. It is transforming Commons into a multilingual, accessible, and machine-readable platform, as well as making its files and data more interconnected, findable, and reusable.

In this presentation, we plan to provide a background on Structured Data on Commons, share some GLAM-Wiki initiatives that are using SDC, give an update on the future direction of the project, and have a conversation about metadata modeling and the use of the Wikidata depicts property.

  • Introductions and background on SDC - Giovanna Fontenelle
  • Structured data adoption in the community - Giovanna Fontenelle
  • Digital Public Library of America initiative - Dominic Byrd-McDevitt
  • Update on the future direction of SDC - Carly Bogen
  • Introduction about modeling and depicts
  • Q&A from the chat

After the presentations, the session will continue as a discussion on Unconference:
