authority control and sharing/maintenance?[edit]

I wonder if any of these things using wikidata for authority control do any of:

  1. pull from wikidata to make statements available for local query, display
  2. push local data from matching record to wikidata
  3. create new wikidata items that "should" exist from local data
  4. detect deletes, renames at wikidata in order to maintain local wikidata authority control records
  5. if pulling from wikidata, detect statement additions and changes and merge with local data
  6. if pushing or pulling from wikidata, some local mechanism for dealing with wikidata property changes

Or whether there are things that do the above without using wikidata for authority control (presumably using some other method of record matching)?

I may never get to it for AcaWiki (mostly because I'm the only editor for a long time) but if I were starting a thing now to add some kind of annotation for items that should be in wikidata, I'd want to somehow make wikidata integral to the thing, but probably with local access to wikidata statements. Writing this comment now because I noted a wikidata list post from a project with maybe an idea along these lines. Mike Linksvayer (talk) 21:43, 20 November 2016 (UTC)

Open Syllabus[edit]

Last I spoke with the folks at The Open Syllabus Project, they are building Wikidata into their data extraction pipeline. See this folder on GitHub for more information. It looks like they might just use it for GRID institutions at present. Runner1928 (talk) 05:27, 2 March 2017 (UTC)
