In 2018, ARL convened a task force of expert Wikidata users, which recommended a variety of ways for librarians to use the open knowledge base in advancing global discovery of their collections, faculty, and institutions. The task force, and its resulting white paper, is meant to inform the ARL membership about GLAM (galleries, libraries, archives, and museums) activity in Wikidata and to highlight opportunities for research library involvement, particularly in community-based collections, community-owned infrastructure, and collective collections.

Providing background on the Wikidata community and knowledge base, the white paper includes use cases exploring projects and initiatives in the broader cultural heritage community, and specific recommendations for institutions, departments, and individuals to experiment with Wikidata locally.
