A WikiProject for work undertaken at IUPUI University Library (Q5975426) to improve the coverage in Wikidata of underrepresented subjects and communities in the State of Indiana with a focus on supporting the Scholarly Profiles as Service model.

IUPUI University Library Commitment to Open Knowledge.

Scholarly Profiles as Service[edit]

The Scholarly Profiles as Service model, developed and implemented by the Open Knowledge Librarian at IUPUI University Library (Q5975426), aims to provide a presence in Wikidata for all IUPUI-affiliated faculty and the scholarship they produce. One way in which we are accomplishing this work is by creating entries in Wikidata for all core faculty from the 16 campus-based schools with an emphasis on women faculty. This focus on women faculty is an attempt to contribute toward balancing the prevalent gender divide in Wikidata. Another piece of this project is identifying whether works by the faculty are already in Wikidata, and if so, making sure they are linked to the corresponding faculty (moving the values from the author name string property to the author property, either manually or by using the Author Disambiguator tool).

IUPUI Faculty Contributions[edit]

The boxes below include links to individual pages containing the work done in support of the Scholarly Profiles as Service model for IUPUI faculty by year. These pages are organized by schools and include the name of the faculty for which an item was either created or enhanced, and publications that were created for or linked to the faculty.

Generating Scholarly Profiles[edit]

To generate Scholarly Profiles using the data contributed to Wikidata, we are employing the use of Scholia. Scholia is a web-based service that feeds from Wikidata to dynamically generate faculty profiles.

Dissertation Project[edit]

The Dissertation Project aims to provide a representation in Wikidata for IUPUI-affiliated Ph.D. graduates and their dissertations. For this project, we are focusing on creating entries for the dissertations first. The second step will be providing a presence for the graduates and establishing the connection between the works and their authors.
