"...Abstract:...By using Wikidata as a hub for scholarly data, librarians at Vanderbilt can now programmatically access and collect information about Vanderbilt researchers from ORCID and about their publications from DOI registry services like CrossRef. The panelists are currently working towards partially or fully automating the aggregation of those data with existing Wikidata items, then transforming those tabular data to be consistent with the Wikibase data model so that new data can be uploaded to Wikidata using tools like OpenRefine and software bots. The librarians on this panel will speak from their practical experience using linked data principles for tracking scholarly research and share how the decision to build their workflows around Wikidata has increased their productivity while also making their activities more accessible and comprehensible to colleagues. This panel will be of interest to librarians and higher educational professionals interested in using Wikidata to measure and evaluate scholarly productivity...."
