Greetings, everyone –

Over the summer and into the fall the <https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Wikidata:WikiProject_LD4_Wikidata_Affinity_Group> 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/Wikidata_Working_Hour_Summer-Fall_Project_2023> to give folks an opportunity to try out various Wikidata-related skills and tools by assembling a data set of diverse library and information science (LIS) materials (articles, conference proceedings, books) and adding it 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, exploring LIS literature, and have been looking for a fun Wikidata project to contribute to.

The eighth Wikidata Working Hour will be an open editing session to help complete our dataset. Participants will be able to create author or work items or use the Author Disambiguator Tool.

Date and time: Friday, December 8th, 2023 at 10:00am PT / 1:00pm ET / 18:00 UTC / 7:00pm WAT / 7:00pm CET (Time zone converter<https://zonestamp.toolforge.org/1702058400>)
