Discussion:
Wikimedia Sverige receives $65k+ in funding for our Library Data project
(too old to reply)

Wikimedia Sverige is proud to be
the recipient of $65,500 in support from the Swedish National Library for
our project Library Data.

We will work in collaboration with the Swedish
National Library to include a number of datasets onto Wikidata, such as
data about authors, libraries and different special databases of
bibliographies[1]. This is a pilot project where we aim to discuss with the
community what to include and what to exclude. Based on the discussions and
the requests from the community we will design a continuation of this
project (if this first part is deemed successful continuous funding is
possible for 3-4 more years).

We started investigating a possible long term
partnership with the National Library in 2017 when Wikimedia Sverige
delivered inputs to the new National Strategy for the Library Sector on how
Sweden's libraries can work with Wikimedia for mutual benefits.[2] The
National Library has just made history as the world's first national
library to fully transition to Linked Open Data (BIBFRAME 2.0),[3] so the
timing could not have been better; we are now in position to examine how
this move can benefit Wikidata and other Wikimedia projects.

Please contact
the project manager André Costa (***@wikimedia.se) or the developer
Alicia Fagerving
(***@wikimedia.se) if you have
any questions.

As always, you can find the full application on our wiki (in
Swedish):

This is really awesome! I met some of the team working on their LOD
software at an event at Stanford in the spring -- they seem to be doing
really amazing and savvy work to make their library data fully compliant --
excited to see Wikidata become a data hub for them (they weren't really
sure if they were going to do that when I talked to them then). Glad you
have been able to make progress!

Cheers,

Wonderful!

I'm especially interrested on how you will structure data about libraries
(a good opportunity to create and launch a project
https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Wikidata:WikiProject_Libraries ;) ).

Yay!
Tried adding myself to the list of participants using Add yourself to the list, but my name didn’t show up
 Maybe I did it wrong? Not familiar with editing Wikidata Wikiproject pages, so maybe there’s something I’ve missed.

This is excellent news! Congratulations, and best of luck to your project!

I think this will really help establish the role of library data within
Wikidata, already well grounded by the work of WikiCite, Inventaire.io,
various vocabulary and authority file mappings on Mix'n'Match and many
other projects.

I look forward to following your progress and I would very much like to
do something similar with Finnish bibliographic data :)

the recipient of $65,500 in support from the Swedish National Library for
our project Library Data.
We will work in collaboration with the Swedish
National Library to include a number of datasets onto Wikidata, such as
data about authors, libraries and different special databases of
bibliographies[1]. This is a pilot project where we aim to discuss with the
community what to include and what to exclude. Based on the discussions and
the requests from the community we will design a continuation of this
project (if this first part is deemed successful continuous funding is
possible for 3-4 more years).
We started investigating a possible long term
partnership with the National Library in 2017 when Wikimedia Sverige
delivered inputs to the new National Strategy for the Library Sector on how
Sweden's libraries can work with Wikimedia for mutual benefits.[2] The
National Library has just made history as the world's first national
library to fully transition to Linked Open Data (BIBFRAME 2.0),[3] so the
timing could not have been better; we are now in position to examine how
this move can benefit Wikidata and other Wikimedia projects.

Wonderful!
Post by Osma Suominen
This is excellent news! Congratulations, and best of luck to your project!
I think this will really help establish the role of library data within
Wikidata, already well grounded by the work of WikiCite, Inventaire.io,
various vocabulary and authority file mappings on Mix'n'Match and many
other projects.
I look forward to following your progress and I would very much like to
do something similar with Finnish bibliographic data :)
