There is a Library Carpentry course on the topic, but it's a bit out of date (large section on SourceMD which is no longer functional in the same way as it used to be)https://librarycarpentry.org/lc-wikidata/01-introduction/index.html
Apologies: landing page = https://librarycarpentry.org/lc-wikidata/
thanks for quick muting Phoebe!
It’s like managing wiki vandalism!
how can we roll out learning pattern for other academic librarians?
We will be making the Twine source code available on GitHub

I’m one of those Visiting Scholars (since March 2017)!
“how does scholar-qa work with wikicite” depends on definition of “wikicite”.
In any case we are very supportive of: https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/WikiCite/Shared_Citations#Internet_Archive
Would love to talk about the slavery work sometime - I’ve been working a lot on wikidata slavery info.

Just learned that some people were stuck in the waiting room…
:). Thank you! @Thomas: no nothing’s automatically sync’d with Wikidata but some of these pages link to the Wikidata item. In the future some can be uploaded
Peter -- really great interesting stuff
Having zoom links up on meta isn't usually a problem.It's mainly an issue when a zoom link is put on twitter, there are bots that collate them into zoom-bombable lists. Might be worth adding a note on meta asking ppl not to share on the link twitter
Very cool stuff here
Thank you, Ahmed!
Now Peter FORSYTH
Good to know, thanks Thomas!

all - we are going to stay for questions for presenters before we move to the lounge
so if you do have questions for any of the presenters, let's get those queued up
That was superb everyone
I think we will expand the time on Saturday due to high to interest!
A pleasure to be here—I learned a ton! Thanks to all.
At 6:15 you don’t have to stay home, but you can’t stay here.
for internet archive bot, are you aware of any good tools for going between internet archive urls and original urls?
Way to make everyone else's backgrounds look bad Benoit
can def. talk more in the lounge but these domains were all present in a small dump of es_wiki internet_archive_domains = ["web.archive.org","www.archive.org","archive.org","replay.web.archive.org","wayback.archive.org","wayback.archive-it.org",]
I like that distinction, Pete
The talkpage not working with Visual editor is a perennial problem
