After you have convinced an institution to donate data (or, if you are an institution: after you have been convinced) the real fun starts — how to upload all the data? Wikidata lacks a big friendly upload button, but that should not put you off. We'll look at various parts of a typical workflow:

  • collecting data (copyright! data base right! fun!)
  • cleaning data (repairing faulty data with Google Spreadsheets and/or OpenRefine)
  • upload (QuickStatements, PyWikibot and everything else)
