  2. 2. ▶ Inventory of Heritage Institutions ▶ Inventory of Protected Buildings ▶ Performing Arts Example Projects – Overview
  3. 3. Inventory of Heritage Institutions
  4. 4. ▶ Starting Point: • Existing inventories of heritage institutions in various countries (cf. OpenGLAM Benchmark Survey) • For most countries, many heritage institutions are not referenced in Wikidata yet. ▶ Goal / Rationale: • Create a worldwide inventory of heritage institutions ▶ Swiss Pilot Project: • Case Report ▶ Potential Partners: • ICOM, IFLA, ICA The Project in a Nutshell Platform Typology According to Information Depth Description of institutions Description of collections Item-level metadata Item-level content Searchable content (OCR, transcriptions, etc.) Structured Data
  5. 5. tinyurl.com/zhdke63  1858 GLAMs in CH and FL Example item with few / many statements
  6. 6. ▶ Existing Data Set of Swiss Heritage Institutions • Add coordinates based on street address • Clean up existing statemets (e.g. institution != building) • Add further statements (e.g. inception, director, etc.) • Translate labels and descriptions ▶ Swiss ISIL Inventory • Ingest the ISplus dataset (ISIL Inventory) ▶ Ontology / Conceptual Work • Clean out the existing ontology (clarify & translate definitions) • How to describe the institutions’ collections in Wikidata? ▶ Data Ingest for Other Countries • Find a contact person in the respective country, ▶ Tools for Data Maintenance • Set-up / create tools to monitor coverage and data completeness ▶ Put the Data to Use • In Wikipedia, Wikivoyage, etc. • In apps, etc. To do
  7. 7. ▶ Finding the time / volunteers to further pursue the project  break the tasks down into smaller chunks ▶ Finding a contact person in every country that assists in gathering the GLAM inventories and helps maintaining the database ▶ How to model the description of heritage collections? • Information to guide users, visitors, researchers, etc. • Information to support the coordination of preservation and digitization activities Main Challenges
  8. 8. Inventory of Protected Buildings
  9. 9. The Project in a Nutshell ▶ Switzerland: Ingested the federal inventory of cultural properties of national or regional significance. ▶ Monuments lists of several other countries have been ingested as well.
  10. 10. «Monumental» – The Web App URL: https://tools.wmflabs.org/monumental/ Documentation: https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Wikidata:Tools/Monumental
  11. 11. ▶ Data Import Switzerland • Import the monuments data from the canton of Zurich and the City of Zurich • Import the remaining monuments data and labels from Wikipedia monuments lists (e.g. via the WLM Monuments Database) ▶ Data Cleansing? ▶ Tools for Data Maintenance • Set-up / create tools to monitor coverage and data completeness • Create a tool to facilitate the annual update of the official data set and to monitor changes in Wikidata ▶ Put the Data to Use • In Wikipedia, Wikivoyage, etc. To do
  12. 12. ▶ Time-Consuming Data Reconciliation for the Zurich Data Sets • Overlaps: many objects are already in the national data set • Group-part relationships need to be dealt with on a one-by-one basis ▶ Ontology • Minor coordination issues with the community regarding the creation / use of properties Main Challenges
  13. 13. Performing Arts
  14. 14. ▶ Starting Point: • Platform Project of Swiss Theatre Collection & Swiss Dance Archive • Swiss Performing Arts Data Model ▶ Goal / Rationale: • Create a worldwide inventory of performing arts productions • Such an inventory provides considerable value added when it comes to interlinking finding aids from various theatre archives ▶ Swiss Pilot Project: • Ingesting a dataset with 30 years of production data of the Schauspielhaus Zürich ▶ Potential Partners: • Swiss Archive of the Performing Arts • Belgian and Dutch theatre archives • Carnegie Hall • User:Harmonia Amanda (inventory of Broadway productions) • British Library (playbills crowdsourcing project) • Fachinformationsdienst Darstellende Kunst, University of Frankfurt • University Tor Vergata, Rome • Bern University of Applied Sciences (students projects) The Project in a Nutshell
  15. 15. Swiss Performing Arts Data Model Coverage: • Theatrical, musical & choreographic works (FRBR) • Performance works, performing arts productions • Creators, contributors, artists • Performance roles • Venues • Organizations • Theatre seasons • Festivals, competitions, events • Awards • Heritage objects • Archival collections (RiC, ISAD(G)) Technological approach / philosophy: • RDF-based ontology with a focus on linked data • Integration of dominant and emerging data models in the different heritage domains (archives, libraries, museums) • Mapping to ontologies widely used within the LOD community
  16. 16. Status Quo – Wikidata
  17. 17. ▶ Project framework established for Performing Arts Productions, Corporate Bodies, Venues and Events: • WikiProject « Performing Arts » • WikiProject « Cultural Venues » • WikiProject « Cultural Events » Status Quo – Wikidata Achievements & Current Challenges • Performing Arts Data Model partly implemented • Initiated an overview of existing data sources • Data cleansing & linking is a great challenge • Still very little performance data ingested PLUS: synergies with existing projects in the area of bibliographic records (works) and authority control (persons)
  18. 18. ▶ There is plenty of relevant material, but it needs organizing and curation ▶ Structured data on Wikimedia Commons is expected to be a great enabler Status Quo – Wikimedia Commons
  19. 19. ▶ Current examples show a great potential for the inclusion of Wikidata-powered content in the field of the performing arts. ▶ Current initiatives may benefit from improved coordination – also across linguistic borders. ▶ Despite many examples of how structured data is used, the data is usually not pulled from Wikidata. ▶ Large parts of the structured data in Wikipedia related to the performing arts is not available on Wikidata. Status Quo – Wikipedia
  20. 20. Example: List of Productions of « Les Galas Karsenty » (French Wikipedia)
  21. 21. Example: Infobox « Das Land des Lächelns » (German Wikipedia)
  22. 22. Example: Infobox « Aksandr Golovin » (Russian Wikipedia)
  23. 23. Example: Listing of the scenographic work of Aleksandr Golovin (Russian Wikipedia)

  25. 25. Example: Infobox Opéra Bastille (French Wikipedia)
  26. 26. Example: List of Artistic Directors and Well-Known Artists at Stadttheater Bern (German Wikipedia)
  27. 27. ▶ Implementation of elements of the Swiss Performing Arts Data Model on Wikidata; mapping between the two data models ▶ Implementation of data modelling examples on Wikidata ▶ Data ingestion (Swiss & Belgian performing arts related data, etc.) ▶ Community building Further tasks down the road: • Ingest structured data from Wikipedia to Wikidata • Monitor data quality and completeness on Wikidata • Change existing templates to pull the data directly from Wikidata; create additional templates where they are missing • Enhance the metadata of performing arts related media objects on Wikimedia Commons (linking them to a performance database implemented on Wikidata) Next Steps – Join us!
  28. 28. Synergies & Potential for Cross-pollination
  29. 29. Wikidata, Wikipedia, Wikimedia Commons • Complementary data (artists, works, etc.) • Potential for crowdsourcing / community- sourcing certain aspects of data maintenance • Application of the data model in an international context • Visibility, exposure of performing arts related information Swiss Performing Arts Platform • Plenty of performance data from Switzerland • Comprehensive data model for the performing arts domain • Plenty of know-how and source material in the area of the performing arts • Digital content (in the longer term, due to copyright issues) Areas for Cooperation • Mutual interlinking of data & content • Community building and outreach to further data providers • Establishing a widely accepted data modelling practice in the area of the performing arts • Organization of editathons and similar events
