Hi everyone,

Over the summer and into the early fall the LD4 Wikidata Affinity Group<https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Wikidata:WikiProject_LD4_Wikidata_Affinity_Group> will be offering a series of Wikidata Working Hours<https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Wikidata:WikiProject_LD4_Wikidata_Affinity_Group/Wikidata_Working_Hours> to give folks an opportunity to try out various Wikidata-related skills and tools by adding data about diverse children’s books<https://ccbc.education.wisc.edu/literature-resources/ccbc-diversity-statistics/> from the Cooperative Children’s Book Center at the University of Wisconsin, Madison to Wikidata. Wikidata Working Hours provide  hands-on Wikidata experience in a supportive space. We hope you will join us if you are interested in learning more about Wikidata, love children’s books, or have been looking for a fun Wikidata project to contribute to.

The third Wikidata Working Hour in the series will cover manually creating and editing contributor (author or illustrator) items: showing how to create items, add statements to items, add references, and use gadgets.

You do not need to have attended the previous Wikidata Working Hours in the series to attend this one.

Date and time: Friday, August 5, 2022 at 10:00am PT / 1:00pm ET / 17:00 UTC / 7:00pm CEST (Time zone converter<https://zonestamp.toolforge.org/1659718801>)

Subsequent Working Hours will cover creating and editing items manually in Wikidata for publishers, and bibliographic works and editions, uploading batch metadata to Wikidata using OpenRefine and Quickstatments, and using SPARQL to query and visualize the data we’ve added to Wikidata. You don’t have to attend every session to benefit from the series, but attending whenever possible will offer the best experience in terms of applying skills and tools to a single data set. We’ll also record the demo portions of each Working Hour, so you can always catch up on anything you miss.
