Description

See parent design proposal, this task is to investigate what info we have or can derive about a source from non-wikimedia data providers.

This might include:

  • Sources entries in universal library catalogues or other repositories (like internet archive)
  • Availability of pdf copies or other media on other sites
  • Availability though programs such as wikipedia library

.... this one is pretty open ended...
