Introduction to cross-contributing to Wikidata and Inventaire to build a comprehensive database on books

  • When? Monday October 30th, from 14:00 to 17:30
  • Where? Wikimedia Deutschland's office, Tempelhofer Ufer 23-24, 10963 Berlin
  • Abstract:

While Wikidata (Q2013) has plenty of data on book (Q571), their author (P50), series (P179) and main subject (P921), etc., there seem to be a consensus that data completeness isn't an objective. But many projects would benefit from a comprehensive CC0 database on books sharing Wikidata qualities (crazy big knowledge graph, links to other Wikimedia projects, hub of database identifers, data model flexibility, etc), thus the desire to extend Wikidata externally: this is one of the two core missions of the server (Q32844021) project. This meetup will help participants to learn the basics of how to cross-contribute to Wikidata and Inventaire.

What will attendees take away from this session

  1. learn the basics of books data models in Wikidata (see Wikidata:WikiProject_Books) and its adaptation in Inventaire (see Inventaire data contribution guidelines)
  2. make your first contributions to Wikidata on books and to Inventaire
  3. learn how to get data out of Inventaire by querying by ISBN or Wikidata id (see

I'll be there[edit]

I can't make it[edit]

  • Sorry, learned about this too late and will likely not be able to make it. Still interested in having an Inventaire for scholarly articles. --Daniel Mietchen (talk) 21:54, 18 October 2017 (UTC)
