Releasing media content from GLAM on Commons has been really successful and important over many years. However, it's important it doesn't exist there in a vacuum, but instead gets integrated into the rest of the Wikimedia projects so that it is visible and used widely. We highlight the use of Wikidata as an excellent strategy to do this. In particular, the way that content is then automatically reused and visible across many projects, e.g., various language Wikipedia infoboxes and lists (using Listeria), as well as Commons category infoboxes. The same applies also to metadata added directly to Wikidata, which can be used e.g., in references (using Cite Q), dramatically increasing its visibility. We will cover other tools that can be used to manipulate and display media using Wikidata and its query service - both describing them and providing a how-to guide for how to implement them for your projects. We also mention how developers can also integrate with Wikidata within their applications and websites. We invite questions and conversations to identify future opportunities for Wikidata integration.

Participants will gain an understanding of Wikidata and its uses for distributing, querying and visualising GLAM-WIKI content
