    I am already using Wikidata there.
    I am adding data from my local institution to Wikidata.
    I neither use nor add data from or to Wikidata but am i am planning to do so.

    My data is structured in columns, better not open and doesn’t contain any links.
    I think what libraries already do, e.g. using authority files, is something quite similar to what LOD could be.
    I am a virtuoso on my Virtuoso Server.

    This time we have a few workshops to choose from, please let us know what you are interested in, so we can plan the rooms accordingly! Find more info about the Workshops in the English version of the program at SPARQL – Using SPARQL to ask questions to Wikidata (no coding skills required, trainer: Nicolas Vigneron).
