The Historic American Building Survey is useful because it provides detailed information about historic buildings and sites throughout the United States. It is also authoritative, as the information was compiled by experts working for the National Park Service. It is useful to have the HABS number assigned to buildings and sites to allow editors to retrieve information from the survey. Ergo Sum (talk) 01:18, 23 November 2018 (UTC)


  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Could you provide links for your examples, please? --Gerwoman (talk) 18:10, 24 November 2018 (UTC)
    • @Gerwoman: Added links. These are not to the HABS inventory itself because, as far as I know, there's no single compendium of the surveys; the closest thing is the database maintained by the Library of Congress, so that's what I've linked to. Ergo Sum (talk) 00:01, 29 November 2018 (UTC)
  • Shouldn't this use the identifier datatype? --Yair rand (talk) 20:37, 27 November 2018 (UTC)
  • I was trying to create a MnM catalog, but it's difficult for me to find any correlation between the HABS id and the control id assigned by the LoC:

  • @Ergo Sum: could you add Qids for your examples? See Wikidata:Property proposal/OeBL 1815-1950 ID for an example of a proposal that does this − Pintoch (talk) 09:37, 30 November 2018 (UTC)
    • @Pintoch: I've added Qids for two of them; the third does not have a Wikidata entry. Ergo Sum (talk) 04:08, 14 December 2018 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting question.svg Question is this the same as Wikidata:Property proposal/HABS building ID ? --- Jura 09:41, 15 December 2018 (UTC)
    • @Jura1: I don't know about that proposal, but based on my glance at it, it appears to be the same property. Ergo Sum (talk) 17:51, 2 January 2019 (UTC)

Update: The HAER ID property proposal, which goes along with this proposal has recently passed. Ergo Sum (talk) 20:53, 1 February 2019 (UTC)
