SDC Pilot with Wikisource
Closed, ResolvedPublicOct 30 2019


In the course of 2019, a small pilot project takes place to practice the full Wikisource workflow, including uploading files to Wikimedia Commons in structured data format. It consists of

  • Digitization of a small set of Punjabi books (in the Qisse genre)
  • Upload of the digitized files to Wikimedia Commons, with metadata in structured data format
  • Upload of the books' metadata (and author data) to Wikidata
  • Indexing and transcribing the books on Wikisource
  • Inclusion of the metadata of the books on Wikisource

@SGill mentors this project. It is also followed, mentored and documented by @SandraF_WMF as a GLAM pilot project for StructuredDataOnCommons.
