How we created a digital preservation portal for the Wikidata knowledge base

12th Apr 2018 : 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

Webinar overview

The Wikidata knowledge base provides a public infrastructure for machine-readable metadata about computing resources. To optimize the Wikidata knowledge base for digital preservation professionals we need to create additional structured descriptions about file formats and software titles. To facilitate this process, we introduce the Wikidata for Digital Preservation portal. This free software portal allows people to browse, and to contribute data to, the Wikidata knowledge base. The interface guides users in contributing data in alignment with current data models for the domain of computing, which are collaboratively created by members of the Wikidata community.
