What does the “Q” stand for in an item ID?
Hsianghui Liu-Spencer
42:14
Can you provide a few of good and well-sourced wikidata entries that we can model in the future, i.e. San F you just show.
Ilias Kyriazis
42:31
ok, thanks

wikidata itens can be used as “subject headings” for libraries catalogues?
Adam Schiff
44:00
I have used them as attributes in authority records
Joy Panigabutra-Roberts
44:34
I just used one for Mount Tatum since there is no LC authority for it.
Amarilis M. Correa
44:41
wikidata as identifiers, then?
Adam Schiff
44:49
I have also created demonym items to use in 386 of bib records along with URI in $1
Amarilis M. Correa

Ilias Kyriazis
54:50
are the alternative terms for a property (under its description) only in english?
Oddrun
55:04
Since Sparql is supported, I assume the data can be represented as triples. But how are qualifiers and References (which are info about statements) represented in that formalism?

a few of us are in a basic linked data workshop. We're supposed to do a query that locates pizzarias in Washington DC -- which property for this statement?
Bradley Carrington, NM State Lib, Santa Fe
01:00:08
yes
SARAH
01:00:44
It's possible add new properties?
Ilias Kyriazis
01:01:40
so, are properties also multilingual?
Adam Schiff
01:06:33
I proposed three authority properties (Hilary helped!) and all three got approved after a week! Very exciting!
Stela Madruga
01:07:29
how long does it take to get the result of the request?
Adam Schiff
01:07:29
After the first, it was smooth going and easy to figure out
Joy Panigabutra-Roberts
01:07:43
I'd like to know what they are, Adam. Thanks!

Mairelys (she/ella)
01:14:11
archive url?
Amarilis M. Correa
01:14:15
The most recommended is to bring reference from wikipedia?
Mairelys (she/ella)
01:14:18
yes
Oddrun
01:14:51
Can it be to a Wikipedia page?
Adam Schiff
01:15:02
I've used an id.loc.gov URL to point to an authority record where the info was in. Is that OK?
Prema Desai
01:15:04
If I add "stated in" then will I be required to create an item for that item?
Mairelys (she/ella)
01:15:04
I use it all the time. But I don’t see many people using it.
Prema Desai
01:15:36
Thanks!
Amarilis M. Correa
01:16:20
how can we see what itens need references?
Amarilis M. Correa
01:16:51
thanks
Joy Panigabutra-Roberts
01:17:16
Where do I go from the dashboard
Chris Pierce
01:17:21
I am sorry... are we to use the dashboard to launch a wikidata item?
Joy Panigabutra-Roberts
01:17:55
thanks!
Ilias Kyriazis
01:18:46
so we create a reference and then we will delete it? (just as a test, right?)
Hsianghui Liu-Spencer
01:21:42
so I add a reference in but where to add 'retrieved'?
Bradley Carrington, NM State Lib, Santa Fe
01:22:52
what kind of reference for an image
Chris Pierce
01:23:34
okay I click add qualifier and I get property window, but I just want to add the url?
Bradley Carrington, NM State Lib, Santa Fe
01:24:31
the image was from commons.wikidata
Hsianghui Liu-Spencer
01:24:44
but the published button is gray out?
Treshani P. (she/her)
01:24:44
There's only one reference URL under San Fran but why does it state there are "2 references"?
Chris Pierce
01:24:50
ok I see
Chris Pierce
01:24:57
i was not getting the dropdown menu
Treshani P. (she/her)
01:25:34
https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Q96391937
Treshani P. (she/her)
01:25:49
"located in the administrative...…"
Christine Fernsebner Eslao
01:26:19
I think it has two references
Treshani P. (she/her)
01:26:29
Got it!
Chris Pierce
01:26:31
do you save the reference update after entering it?
Amarilis M. Correa
01:27:01
Can I edit the description if it’s too short?
Treshani P. (she/her)
01:27:17
Thanks, Will!
Christine Fernsebner Eslao
01:27:25
It’s really easy to make this mistake, especially if the light blue box background gets washed out on your monitor
Chris Pierce
01:27:50
i am not seeing anything to save the updated reference?
Chris Pierce
01:28:26
oh i see it's grayed out
Amarilis M. Correa
01:28:42
Sorry, about the description, I clicked at the pencil but it opened the alias box.
Amarilis M. Correa
01:28:51
couldn’t right a longer description
Amarilis M. Correa
01:29:01
write*
Amarilis M. Correa
01:29:04
sorry
Chris Pierce
01:29:37
my reference wasn't saved
Stela Madruga
01:30:44
=) thank you
Chris Pierce
01:30:57
oh ok i got it to save!
hilary thorsen
01:31:07
Awesome, Chris!
Chris Pierce
01:31:08
i think my browser glitched
Joy Panigabutra-Roberts
01:31:24
Thank you. I actually got to link items to our libraries' digital collection.
hilary thorsen
01:31:38
Yes, sometimes things get out of sync, so refreshing and perhaps entering the data again as needed can usually fix things
Chris Pierce
01:32:08
yeah, i am also having some internet connection uses apparently (according to a popup on the edit page)
hilary thorsen
01:32:25
tricky—glad it ended up working out!
Stela Madruga
01:37:13
can i save new examples?
Ilias Kyriazis
01:40:05
what do the prefixes p:, ps:, pq: mean??
Amarilis M. Correa
01:41:13
adding image as a variant, the result will bring only mayor with pictures or there would be a blank for those that don’t have image representation?
Joy Panigabutra-Roberts
01:41:57
Can you limit it to a state?
Susan R.
01:42:13
But there’s also another prefix: p:, which points not to the object, but to a statement node. This node then is the subject of other triples: the prefix ps: (for property statement) points to the statement object, the prefix pq: (property qualifier) to qualifiers
Christine Fernsebner Eslao
01:42:14
Amarilis, I think that depends on whether the part of the query is wrapped in an OPTIONAL { } but I’ll ask Will
Susan R.
01:42:22
From: https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Wikidata:SPARQL_tutorial
Amarilis M. Correa
01:42:39
thanks, Christine
Hsianghui Liu-Spencer
01:42:55
WOW! exciting! So, when the query will be normally broken, is there a place or trouble shoot to find the error? It seems that there is pop-up, but what is the help for the query beginner?
Adam Schiff
01:43:25
In the San Francisco record, how did you get from head of government property to mayor?
Adam Schiff
01:43:47
I mean, mayor is diff than head of gov?
Amarilis M. Correa
01:43:48
thank you both
Bradley Carrington, NM State Lib, Santa Fe
01:44:29
so back to the assignment that Steven F. gave us in the basic LD workshop: What is the name of the one pizzeria Wikidata knows about in Washington D.C. So, what would be a good example or the first couple of moves to make...
Adam Schiff
01:46:01
oh ok thanks
Joy Panigabutra-Roberts
01:46:40
I found that I can limit by Geonames
Christine Fernsebner Eslao
01:48:09
The notorious Comet Ping Pong
Amarilis M. Correa
01:48:19
If Geonames were added as identifiers, Joy?
Joy Panigabutra-Roberts
01:48:55
Filter. I still did not get the results yet though.
Amarilis M. Correa
01:51:31
But I mean that Genomes ID must have been added to the item before, right?
