[Epic] Feedback processes and tools for data-providers
Open, Needs TriagePublic


Wikidata editors find a number of mistakes in the data that we get from other places (i.e. authority controls files, GLAMS, ...). We'd like to have standardized tools and processes to give feedback to the institution/company/... that provided the data so it can be corrected at the source and not just in Wikidata.

Potential problems we'd like to report:

  • wrong mappings to Wikidata items
  • duplicate entries in the source database
  • learning how we should map concepts in 2 different domains e.g. should books in Wikidata has the same structure as a library that use BIBFrame, should a church in Wikidata follow the same structure as a church at the Swedish National Heritage use....
  • ...
