Citoid should load citation data from Czech authorities sources
Open, NormalPublic

Description

The automatically generated citations by Citoid (searched e.g. by ISBN/ISSN/URL) contain multiple errors and mistakes these days. When we analyze these errors and mistakes, we have to admit they look like they are loaded from some non-Czech database/source. Could it be possible to search Czech autorities databases (e.g. NK ČR) first on the Czech Wikipedia?

We use WorldCat for ISBNs. There's a similar bug filed for JP wiki here: T192528. Is there a good Czech authority to use you can recommend?

Ah, I see NK ČR - is there a link to an api you can give me?

I know this portal: https://aleph.nkp.cz/F/3X7P68FGSXE81UC5PTXBTBYRRLC5AN4KCQYB7DSUH66FSVUP6J-47236?func=file&file_name=find-b
The base search searches in NK ČR (National Library of the Czech Rep. abbrev. as NKC). You can also change the base, I recommend also SK ČR (Union Catalogue of the Czech Rep., abbrev. as SKC) or do a multi-base search. There is also a CCL search option to make search using command language (which could be easily scripted to Citoid I think).

It also works with url parameters, so it should be possible to write a translator
