Google Books > Internet Archive > Commons upload cycle
Wikisources all around the world use heavily GB digitizations for transcription and proofreading. As GB provides just the PDF, the usual cycle is:
- go to Google Books and look for a book
- check if the book is already in IA
- if it's not, upload it there
- get the djvu from IA and upload it on Commons
- use it on Wikisource
For point 4, we have this awesome tool: http://tools.wmflabs.org/ia-upload/ What we miss right now is a tool for points 1–3, that would serve many other users outside the Wikimedia movement too. Eventually, we could think of a bot/script which would do all the work altogether, notifying the user when their help is needed (eg metadata polishing, Commons categories, etc.) Mentors: Aubrey is available for "design" mentorship, paired with a technical expert. We can maybe ask help from a IA expert.
