(Add your motivation for this property here.) Gamaliel (talk) 13:54, 16 May 2018 (UTC)

At the EuropeanaTech Wikidata training workshop this week, a participant from this organisation specifically wanted to know how to connect their vocab to wikidata. We want to make this Identifier property so we can then add it to Mix’n’Match and connect their work to Wikidata. Wittylama (talk) 14:01, 16 May 2018 (UTC)


  • Symbol support vote.svg Support looks like a good comprehensive thesaurus for Africa. ArthurPSmith (talk) 20:06, 16 May 2018 (UTC)
  • Side comment: I think it should be renamed to make it more clear whose thesaurus this is - The African Studies Centre Leiden. Calling it “African Studies Thesaurus ID” implies it’s fhe one/only thing about Africa. I suggest “ASC Leiden Thesaurus ID” (which is most correct but not clear to people who don’t know the org), or “African Studies Centre Leiden Thesaurus ID” (which might be too long).

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support, agreeing with Wittylama's comment above. I'd use 'ASC Leiden Thesaurus ID' as label, and the longer name as alias. Spinster 💬 06:19, 17 May 2018 (UTC)

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support for "ASC Leiden Thesaurus ID". The participant of the EuropeanaTech wikidata workshop was very enthusiastic about the possibility of adding their vocabulary to wikidata, and looks like a well-reasoned thesaurus. --CalvinBall (talk) 13:18, 18 May 2018 (UTC)
