This session will introduce the data-making practices and Wikidata engagement integral to the NEH-funded Wayfinder project at Emory University. The Wayfinder project is an initiative to reimagine James Danky and Maureen Hady’s 1998 African American Newspapers and Periodicals: A National Bibliography as a linked dataset available on Wikidata. The talk will cover the key data modeling decisions made, in partnership with an advisory board, related to adapting a print bibliography to an online resource, the use of artificial intelligence to extract data, and the process of integrating the data into Wikidata. The talk will conclude with a discussion of the risks and benefits of the Wikidata platform for promoting discovery and enhancement of the dataset by both scholars and the general public. This presentation will appeal to data-making practitioners, librarians, technologists and those interested in disseminating knowledge about Black print culture. Slides here.
