If Wikipedia is the encyclopedia anyone can edit, Wikidata is the free knowledge base that anyone can edit. In an event sponsored by the LACUNY Emerging Technologies Roundtable, Wikibrarians Megan Wacha and Chanitra Bishop introduced authority control in Wikimedia Projects, with a focus on Wikidata. In addition to the content addressed in these slides, the workshop covered VIAF, categories and authority control on Wikipedia, systematic bias in Wikimedia projects more broadly, and querying Wikidata.
