Hello, everyone –

We have our next LD4 Wikidata Affinity Group Call on Tuesday, March 19th, 2024 at 9am PT / 12pm ET / 16:00 UTC / 6pm CEST (Time zone converter<https://zonestamp.toolforge.org/1710864000>). Please join us on March 19 for a community discussion about how GLAM professionals can incorporate Wikidata/linked data into their work week. Bring your success stories about institutional buy-in and how you’ve communicated the value of linked data to managers and colleagues. We hope to share some strategies that you can take back and use in your own workplace. This will be a followup of sorts to our call last May, and you can review some of what we talked about then, plus slides from our survey here: Notes from May 30, 2023 Meeting<https://docs.google.com/document/d/1Yy-MOJf2U-fMyC1NEkWHjIcDPKF5_3dnsdxJnt9yIiQ/edit?usp=sharing> on Advocacy for Wikidata & Linked Data in Libraries
