Hi everyone,

Did you know that the Met, the Cleveland Museum of Art, and MOMA have all
taken advantage of Wikidata? And that Wikidata provides a platform for
museum professionals to make works and individuals more discoverable
through authorities and identifiers? This fall, seize new opportunities for
your library, museum, or institution by taking one of Wiki Education's
online Wikidata courses.

*“Contributing to Wikidata has a ripple effect. *
*It's a great way for institutions to contribute our resources to a wide
variety of communities and meet users where they already are.” - past
course participant*

*Get started now!*

Participants in Wiki Education's online courses meet virtually to learn how
to use, as well as contribute to, the global data repository that is
Wikidata. Each course is six weeks and includes one hour synchronous
sessions with peers, as well as access to hands-on support and technical
training from Wikidata experts. The course will also cover a set of
specialized tools to help museums share their data about their collections
and create linked data efficiently.
