The IFLA Wikidata Working Group was formed in late 2019 to explore and advocate for the use of and contribution to Wikidata by library and information professionals, the integration of Wikidata and Wikibase with library systems, and alignment of the Wikidata ontology with library metadata formats such as BIBFRAME, RDA, and MARC.
The Wikicite Discussion Series was organised by the IFLA Wikidata Working Group and generously supported by the Wikimedia Foundation. Across six sessions (each around an hour), we explore open citations, language revitalisation, knowledge equity, access to scholarly publications, linking and visualising bibliographic data, the global wiki community, and much more!
We are librarians, curators, archivists, cataloguers, researchers, software engineers, marketers, finance & HR professionals and others working in the GLAM (Galleries, Libraries, Archives, Museums) & Cultural Heritage sector.
Data Scientist Training for Librarians (DST4L) is an experimental course, started at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics John G. Wolbach Library and the Harvard Library to train librarians to respond to the growing data needs of their communities.

Linked Open Data provided in the Common Library Network (GBV). The service subsumes multiple parts (data about libraries, documents, vocabularies...) in different state of development. No API other than plain HTTP requests so far.
Initiated by Jez Cope, awarded a Software Sustainability Institute Fellowship in January 2020, to kickstart a cultural heritage data science network at the British Library. The project seems to have fallen asleep after two year but Jez still seems to be active: https://erambler.co.uk/about/
