Hi everyone, I hope this email finds you well as you adjust to quickly
changing work demands right now. If you're looking for virtual projects and
networking opportunities during this difficult time, please know that our
metadata management courses around Wikidata provide GLAM institutions with
a concrete way to execute digital projects from home. Our tried and tested
online training infrastructure has helped dozens of GLAM professionals
conceptualize projects with real institutional impact.

To support all registrants, we are offering group discounts and still have
5 seats eligible for financial aid for courses that start next week. Check
out our registration forms linked from data.wikiedu.org for more details
about our courses and our financial services. You may also email me at any
time with questions.

The Digital Collections team at Carnegie Hall, Lisa Barrier and Kathryn
Gronsbell, went into their Wikidata course expecting to receive an
introduction to editing (and maybe querying) but came out of it also with a
new understanding of how to interpret, share, and grow Carnegie Hall’s
archival collection and performance data.

“We understood that increasing our experience with and exposure to Wikidata
would help us plan for upcoming data projects. We can now work on
continuing alignment between Wikidata and Carnegie Hall’s performance
history data (CH-LOD) and create items for under-described or lesser known
entities (including performers, composers, and artists) who may not be
described in other datasets.” – Digital Collections Associate Lisa Barrier
and Digital Collections Manager Kathryn Gronsbell, Carnegie Hall.
