Dear PCC colleagues,

Please see information below about the availability of notes, slides and a recording of yesterday’s LD4 Wikidata Affinity Group discussion focused on an upcoming PCC Wikidata Pilot.  Thanks to those who attended and participated in the active discussion.  I know many of you were interested and not able to attend at such short notice, so I hope these links will be helpful.

All best,

Hello everyone,


Thank you to Michelle Durocher and John Riemer for presenting yesterday and to all who participated in the call. I thought the discussion was really interesting.


I have incorporated chat messages into the notes from the call as well as added a section with questions/comments we didn't have a chance to talk about during the course of the call.


You can see chat messages via the link to the recording. To the right of the recording are two tabs--one with the audio transcript and one with the chat messages. I've also attached the text of the chat to this email in case that is useful.





Take care,

Subject: PCC Wikidata Pilot: preliminary discussion tomorrow


Dear PCC colleagues,

I’m happy to report that the PCC Task Group on Identity Management in NACO is in the final stages of planning a Wikidata Pilot, a milestone activity within the Task Group’s charge.  The Pilot will be a great opportunity for catalogers to begin or continue to work in Wikidata and further integrate contributing to Wikidata into regular metadata workflows. In order to benefit from experience and advice from the Wikidata community as we finalize details for the Pilot, Task Group members will be discussing current plans for the Pilot at the next LD4 Wikidata Affinity Group call tomorrow on Tuesday, June 16th.


These meetings are open to anyone, so if you are interested, the call-in details are below.  When finalized information about the Pilot is determined, a more detailed message will go out on the PCC List along with an open solicitation of interest for participation.


Call Details:

Date and Time: Tuesday, June 16th at 9am PDT / 12pm EDT / 16:00 UTC / 6pm CEST (Time zone converter)

all best wishes,

Michelle Durocher
