Wikidata presently knows of 70 libraries in Africa, so it would be great to get it more complete. Here's the query: https://w.wiki/Aam
Lucas
23:33
why using has part (P527) and part of (P361) instead of subsidiary (Q658255) and parent organization (P749)?
Lucas
24:11
subsidiary (P749)
Martin Poulter
25:34
Maybe because an archive or collection is not always an organisation in its own right, so can't have a parent organisation?

This is not about the finding GLAMs project, so maybe a question for later on in the call: We had a Wikipedia and Wikidata workshop at NYU for archives week (some colleagues organized it), but some of our edits got flagged for COI. Anyone have any advice?
alexandra provo
27:29
Thank you!
Martin Poulter

Be vary wary editing about yourself or your employer: better to declare your interest up front and request edits on the Talk page.
Martin Poulter
27:58
Include {{request edit}} in your Talk page statement, that will highlight the request on a dedicated COI noticeboard.
alexandra provo
28:17
Thanks! We’ll try this next time. This was only adding a link to the finding aid
alexandra provo
28:42
Awesome, thanks!

There are thousands of spammers/ PR agencies bombarding Wikipedia with external links, so admins are understandably jumpy about accounts that add external links.
Elizabeth Russey Roke
29:30
Maybe try adding the link in Wikidata (archivesAt).
alexandra provo
29:39
Got it—thank you, Martin! Some of these editors also didn’t have user pages
alexandra provo
29:43
We did that as well! :)

What is the meaning of the green bar at under the column headings?
Cliff Landis
48:26
Dark green = reconciled against existing; light green = creating new records
agilbert
48:30
Thank you!
alexandra provo

How would you go about adding multiple aliases?
Cliff Landis
55:00
Same as with multiple "instance of", you can have several columns dedicated to aliases, then add them as separate values
alexandra provo
55:34
Thanks!
Elizabeth Russey Roke

If you had a larger set of fields in OR but only wanted to upload part of it to Wikidata, can you just ignore those fields in the schema?
agilbert
01:01:17
Could you add images to a batch for Wikidata using OpenRefine?
alexandra provo
01:01:36
How do you submit for bot review?
agilbert
01:01:37
Thanks!

Is there a way to take OSM entries and get them into Wikidata (somewhat close to automagically)?
Chris J
01:02:58
Thanks - there are a fair number of libraries that are in OSM, thus our interest
Martin Poulter
01:03:28
I saw a recent demo of this software for reconciling OSM and Wikidata which seemed impressive, though I haven't tried it. https://github.com/EdwardBetts/osm-wikidata
alexandra provo
01:04:51
OSM is open street map?
alexandra provo
01:05:20
I’d be interested in that!
Cliff Landis
01:07:34
Sorry, I typed the Notes in the Agenda! Whoops! :)
hilary thorsen
01:08:04
No prob! Thank you for taking them!
Martin Poulter
01:08:05
Thanks Hilary for the demo. I learned useful new stuff about Open Refine.
alexandra provo
01:08:10
Yes, thank you!!
