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 Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records (FRBR) model (a widely 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). They are mainly meant to be used for items linked to Wikipedia pages.

Works should be instances of written work (Q47461344) or one of its subclasses.

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.

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 manuscript is not the same as a literary work. All the properties, such 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), manuscript codex (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 one, is the one who publishes the text of the manuscript for the first time in print. The publishing date publication date (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 appropriate precision level in the advanced adjustments. Choose a location for location (P276) that has the best possible precision, otherwise use the city where P195 is located.
