Museums/ Europeana aggregators must understand how new Agents can be created..... the bad quality T243764: en:Wikipedia <-> Europeana Entity has problem with the quality of Europeana Linked data that makes one of the world biggest websites hesitate if they should link Europeana or not is just because of bad management of Authorities/Agents.
The scope of the problem is not bigger than what Wkipedia did in 2012 that we said when we write an article on en:Wikipedia that we connect this article to another language article about the same subject. In Europeana there is nearly no Linked data and Agents is just about one museum saying that this painting is created by xxx that is the same creator we see in other museums....
As museums often have their own systems they already have done the work and need just the Europeana Agent ID ==> Europeana need to set this up!!!
- question asked "Creating new Europeana Agent ids?"
- Wikidata is free and open maybe we just send something to Europeana with a Qnumber and they create it when uploading
- One problem is that many agents in Europeana I guess/hope will not be notable enough in Wikidata see T240738: More than 1200 Europeana Entities reference deleted Wikidata objects - task identify them but also Europeana need action
