Govdirectory - just another WikiProject?
2021-10-30, 13:30–13:55 (UTC), Room 1

What is WikiProject Govdirectory, and why should you care? We'll talk about how data from Wikidata can be reused for high-impact projects, while at the same time improves the data in Wikidata. How do you go about to try to model and add data for all the public agencies of an entire country?


What will the participants take away from this session?

Participants will learn about structures in a WikiProject, and in this project in specific. They should be able to both start contributing to the structures of their own country, and feel confident to start a giant project of their own.
