Greetings everyone,

Our next biweekly LD4 Wikidata Affinity Group call is Tuesday, May 5th at 9am PDT / 12pm EDT / 16:00 UTC / 6pm CEST. We’ll have Alex Jung, Wikipedian-in-Residence/Open Technology Specialist for the University of Toronto Libraries joining us to talk about the use of Wikidata in Wikipedia infoboxes.

The call details are below. To receive notifications about upcoming calls and meeting notes you can subscribe to the ld4-wikidata Google Group<https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/ld4-wikidata>. If you aren't able to attend, the meetings are recorded and meeting notes available on Google Drive<https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1JwTulCABs0TkGQDVSnYbIYEb7bC-j4-n>.

The LD4-Wikidata Affinity Group is associated with the Linked Data for Production project<https://wiki.duraspace.org/pages/viewpage.action?pageId=104568167>. One of the goals of the project is understanding how libraries can contribute to and better integrate library metadata with Wikidata to improve access to library resources on the web. The Affinity Group calls provide an informal space to share information and learn more about Wikidata.
