WikiProject Books

Wikidata-books-task-force-logo.svg

The aim of of the WikiProject Books is:

  • to define a set of properties that can be used both by book infoboxes, Commons books templates, and Wikisource.
  • to map and import all relevant data that currently is spread in Commons, Wikipedia, and Wikisource.
  • establish methods to interact with this data from different projects

Book properties[edit]

We used the w:Functional_Requirements_for_Bibliographic_Records (FRBR) model (a very used and famous conceptual framework in library science) to divide the Book properties in 2 sets. The FRBR model underlines the fact that you can view a book in 4 different ways, or levels: as a work, as an expression, a manifestation or an item. Within Wikimedia projects, we don't need all 4 of them: for example, when Wikipedia has an article about a book, it is often in the "work" view (i.e. the Bible, Pinocchio, Hamlet are regarded as "creative works", which have been embodied in several translation and editions and different media).

On Wikisource, a particular edition (sometimes, we have more than one) is used for a book. As we have different Wikisources, we thus have also translations.

Not to complicate too much, we didn't use the FRBR terms "expression" or "manifestation", as the boundary between the definitions it's not easy to grasp. So we used "edition" instead, collapsing those 2 FRBR layers in 1 (other conceptual frameworks similar to FRBR (like Bibframe) collapse those 2 layers too). Thus the double layer work - edition has been used for creating Book properties.

Work item properties[edit]

These properties are for the first item that represents a book (FRBR work level). These properties are mainly for items linked to Wikipedia pages.

Single copy item properties[edit]

There are a number of wikipedia articles which deal with a single copy of a book which has become notable for some reason. See Lincoln Bible (Q1816474) and the bibles listed in Category:Individual Bibles (Q8546779). These will need different properties from those used for a literary work.

Where there is only one copy of a literary work then the wikidata page may need both sets of properties.

Tools[edit]

  • Wikidata:Tools: tools for editing pages. Many are especially interesting for books (es. Authority control). Aubrey's favourite are here.

Remote editors for wikidata book related elements[edit]

Three AJAX-API editors for Person, Work and Edition wikidata elements that run from any page of any projects and allow remote editing of wikidata element linked to that local page by a comfortable user interface. Scripts are by ru:w:User:Vlsergey; they are running as Mediawiki gadgets into it.wikisource.

how is it possible to use them on other wikisources (fr for instance) ? - should they be installed as gadgets, or is there just a link to paste in the common.js ? --Hsarrazin (talk) 08:33, 9 August 2014 (UTC)
