Presentation Open Access
WikiCite is an initiative to collect bibliographic and citation information, particularly of references cited from Wikimedia projects like Wikipedia, Wikisource or Wikidata. It provides an umbrella for a broad range of activities at the intersection between Wikimedia, libraries and other organizations engaged in scholarly communication or cultural heritage. Over the past few years, many of these activities have involved in-person events - including participation in the Workshop on Open Citations in 2018 - but the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has changed that, and the WikiCite community is adapting. In this talk, I will provide an overview of WikiCite activities during the last 12-18 months as well as of what is ongoing and planned.
