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

Bibliographic 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.

Exemplar 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.

Title ID Data type Description Example Inverse
exemplar of P1574 Item property for manuscripts, autographs, incunabula, distinct printed copies (Hohenems-Münchener Handschrift A) exemplar of (Nibelungenlied)
creator P170 Item maker of a creative work or other object (where no more specific property exists)
printed by P872 Item organization that printed the creative work (if different from "publisher")
location P276 Item location the physical object or event is within

significant event P793 Item significant or notable events associated with the subject

See Wikidata:WikiProject Visual arts/Item structure for a more properties that may be applicable.

Manuscript properties[edit]

Manuscripts are single copies of literary works, so a manuskript is not the same as a literary work. All the properties as author, date of publishing etc. belong to the manuscript alone. All manuscript items need instance of (P31)+manuscript (Q87167). There are some more common items to characterise a manuscript in combination with instance of (P31): codex (Q213924), Literary fragment (Q1440453), ostracon (Q834459), Q2217259 (Q2217259), palimpsest (Q274076), Evangeliary (Q1754581), Gospel Book (Q690851), Lectionary (Q284465). Please specify the writing material for material used (P186): papyrus (Q125576), paper (Q11472), leather (Q286), parchment (Q226697) Sherd (Q1463658). The editor, if there is any, is the one who publishes the text of the manuscript for the first time in print. The publishing date time of publication (P577) also belongs to the first printed edition. There is a time, when the manuscript was made, this is done with inception (P571), please choose an apropriate precision level in the advanced adjustments. Chose a location for location (P276) that has the best possible precision, otherwise use the city where P195 is located.

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)
They are installed as gadgets with a very simple code at it.wikisource: it:s:MediaWiki:Gadget-WEF PersonEditor.js, it:s:MediaWiki:Gadget-WEF WorkEditor.js, it:s:MediaWiki:Gadget-WEF EditionEditor.js. The core line of code is mediawiki-loader-load, we just added a little bito of code to load them in appropriate namespaces only. --193.43.176.15 11:56, 9 September 2014 (UTC)
