Implement adding surname
Closed, ResolvedPublic8 Estimated Story Points


Implement adding family name to items based on Libris information.

Note: this needs a nationality check as we want to avoid matching with wrong name items because of transcription issues, see comment in the mapping.

Event Timeline

Note: we can save surnames we didn't match to a report. This will tell Wikidata users what surname items should be created, which will advance the bibliographical efforts on Wikidata.

Thoughts on matching: use P1705, not label, as a protection against matching against wrong items because of transcription issues.

See e.g. Ivanov as a name of a Russian person vs. Swedish/German etc person.

Can also check for writing system โ†’ Latin script.
