Hi everyone,

Wanted to check in again and let you know that we are running our final round of Wikidata professional development courses next month. More below! 

Are you interested in exploring alternatives to current metadata practices? Are you also curious about the applications of structured, linked data? When asked what future participants would get out of our Wikidata how-to courses, 70% and 90% of previous participants recommended these two learning objectives. If you're interested in access, openness, and having an impact then this course is for you!
