More information needed
Right now the English label for this property is: "People Australia identifier". AFAIK the identifier is also used for companies etc (see: domain). Can someone add more information to the background of the project? Is it a kind of Australian VIAF? --Kolja21 (talk) 14:40, 17 May 2014 (UTC)
- Australian Research Data Commons (ARDC)
- ARDC Party Infrastructure Project: FAQs
- Catalog NLA Trove: People and organisations
- Name of the identifier: NLA Persistent Identifier
- Ambiguous (label: "NLA"): NLA (Australia) ID (P409)
- better (?): Libraries Australia Authorities
Please add more ...
This seems to work for either people or party (or some others). Given its usage here, and >1M entries for people, I'd say we should use it for people only. --Magnus Manske (talk) 13:01, 10 August 2015 (UTC)
- Nonetheless, the data set in Mix'n'match definitely contains orgs as well as people, and a few geonames to boot. Ijon (talk) 16:16, 24 October 2017 (UTC)
This data set definitely contains multiple IDs for the same thing. E.g. for Soviet Union (Q15180). This isn't a one-in-10,000 exception. More like one in a hundred. Ijon (talk) 16:18, 24 October 2017 (UTC)
- and, uh, British Library (Q23308)...
- Perhaps @Wittylama: knows someone at the NLA who could shed light on why there are so many IDs for the British Library? Ijon (talk) 17:16, 24 October 2017 (UTC)
- I asked via Twitter and this was the response across several tweet replies: "So it looks like there was a problem with the initial data load from Libraries Australia back in 2009. We're looking into the solution. Fixing this isn't going to happen quickly. It will need some long term data work and will need to be looked at in the future. FYI, the People zone, where you get the NLA party id, is based on Encoded Archival Context - Corporate bodies, Persons, and Families. This is why you will see organisations as well people in there. The schema is here - http://eac.staatsbibliothek-berlin.de/ ". .
- I hope that helps. Wittylama (talk) 09:03, 25 October 2017 (UTC)
