An event by the Betty & Gordon Moore Library

This session will open with a talk and Q&A session exploring Wikidata, ContentMine, and WikiCite. The talk will cover how Wikidata relates to the systematic text mining of the scientific literature, as well as the creation on Wikidata of an open collection of bibliographical and citation data. There will also be a free sandwich lunch.

After the initial talk, there will be a 2 hour hands-on session to help you understand how to work with data within a Wikimedia context. Please bring your own device and sign up for a Wikipedia account before the session. We will also fuel you with tea and coffee.

This session is open to all members of the University of Cambridge. We would especially like to encourage librarians, and anyone working with facts and information such as researchers, to come along.

The outline of the afternoon will be:

13:00 Arrival and sandwich lunch

13:30 Talk and Q&A session

14:30 Hands-on session

16:30 Close

We have two ticket types: Talk only and Talk & Hands-on, so you can have the option to come along for one hour only or for the full session.

This session will be led by our Wikimedian-in-Residence, Dr Charles Matthews.
