Wellcome Collection enriching its data pipelines with Wikidata, LCSH, MeSH, - Harrison Pim
From Ewan McAndrew
Wellcome Collection is starting to enrich its data pipelines with Wikidata, LCSH, MeSH, etc, and using an underlying graph of connected works, people, and concepts to improve search and discovery.
On 19 June 2020, the Science Museum Group hosted a free, public webinar on Wikidata and cultural heritage collections. This was the first in a series of convenings as part of the Heritage Connector project.
The webinar brought together a set of short case studies from practitioners who have worked in this field to present their work and the opportunities and challenges as they saw them.
