Education statements from Orcid profiles

Hi Sic19, I just want to express my appreciation for your work pulling in education history from Orcid profiles. I am currently matching authors to dissertation in a large dataset, and having the type of qualification, institution and start or finish dates available directly in the Wikidata author item is saving me a lot of time and effort. So thank you! Cheers, DrThneed

Should this place Q26397887 not be two items, since one is the building and the other is the hostel

Sic19 (talkcontribs)

Hi Germartin1,

Yes, I agree that the building and hostel (business) are conceptually different but decided to merge after some analysis because:

Thanks for the work you are doing on hotel and hostel data - I've noticed the new items appearing on Wikishootme recently. From my perspective, it is not a problem if you'd prefer to revert my merge and add the relationship between the two items instead.

All the best,

Simon

I appreciate your input, I know it's a tricky question and I agree it's often easier to have it all in one item. But for data quality it's often better to keep it separted to prevent using many qualifiers. If the item has an owner/inception/abolished date property would it refer you to the hotel business or the building. It won't be clear. But for me, it isn't even clear what exactly a hotel is, so there's that :)
