The cooperation between the GND and Wikimedia projects has now been running for about 10 years. The use of GND-Identifiers as references in Wikipedia articles is perhaps the biggest success story. They connect both information networks and their communities. But we believe that this is not nearly the end of cooperative perspectives – especially in regard to wikidata it is rather the starting point. Wikidata supporters and the German National Library (DNB) - as the operator of the community-driven GND - would like to discuss further opportunities of working together in building an open semantic web around culture and knowledge.
