Discussion[edit]

Add Open Library to Authority Control[edit]

Hello -- due to GerardM (talkcontribslogs)'s great outreach work with Open Library, the Open Library authority control, which makes discoverable the largest resource of freely licensed books online, is now available. I would like to ask for this Open Library ID to be included in the Authority control -- and specifically the Authority control template in English (and other) Wikipedias.... -- Erika aka BrillLyle (talk) 07:14, 2 April 2017 (UTC)

@BrillLyle: Added Semantic Scholar (Resarchers) and Open Library (Others). Also sorted both sections --Vladimir Alexiev (talk) 10:52, 7 June 2017 (UTC)
This request is misplaced. Requests for changes on "English (and other) Wikipedias" need to be made on the respective Wikipedia. Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 12:08, 7 June 2017 (UTC)


I think that this discussion is resolved and can be archived. If you disagree, don't hesitate to replace this template with your comment. Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 12:08, 7 June 2017 (UTC)

added married name as a qualifier[edit]

As we have name (default, presumably birth name) and pseudonym, we need to manage cases where a married name is different from the default name. Added it as an acceptable qualifier.  — billinghurst sDrewth 10:39, 31 May 2017 (UTC)

similarly birth name (P1477) where married name is the default for the control, and we need to qualify the other.  — billinghurst sDrewth 06:25, 13 June 2017 (UTC)
added named as (P1810) as it is equivalent to the alternatives and would be used for organisations.  — billinghurst sDrewth 08:56, 11 July 2017 (UTC)
