New OpenRefine reconciliation service

Pintoch (talkcontribs)


Thank you for wearing the {{User loves OpenRefine}} userbox on your user page!

Because the existing Wikidata reconciliation service has had severe performance issues recently, I have created a new one which should be faster and more robust. You can add it to OpenRefine in the reconciliation dialog with the following URL: https://wikidata.reconci.link/en/api (or by replacing en by any other language code).

If you have any issues with this new service, let me know.

Happy reconciling!

SHARE Catalogue - segnalazione errore

Epìdosis (talkcontribs)

Ciao e grazie mille a te per la segnalazione. Ci sono diversi casi in SHARE di cluster obsoleti o che linkano a corrispettivi cluster di VIAF obsoleti ma normalmente non hanno un diretto collegamento con Wikidata. Che io sappia vengono effettuate delle manutenzioni periodiche, da un lato proprio per allineare i dati con il VIAF e poi per aggiornare il catalogo LOD con le nuove immissioni che provengono dai programmi di gestione delle singole istituzioni. Tieni presente però che, purtroppo per me, non lavoro alla knowledge base, quindi potrei anche non interpretare correttamente il flusso di lavoro del progetto.

In ogni caso ho inviato un messagggio a una collega bibliotecaria che lavora per il servizio tecnico; spero che mi risponda a stretto giro perché ho notato che il "Contattaci" in alto a destra che normalmente serviva per inviare le segnalazioni da parte di tutti gli utenti del catalogo non è più attivo. Appena me lo fa sapere ti giro l'indirizzo.

Grazie ancora :)

@Epìdosis vedo che il contattaci è stato ripristinato. La segnalazione evidentemente ha funzionato ;-) L'indirizzo a cui segnalare quindi ora è sharecatalogue-helpdesk@atcult.it

Summary by Uomovariabile

Trivialist contacted Magnus. Now the catalog on mix'n'match works properly.

Trivialist (talkcontribs)

I created the catalog before the property was created, and they haven't been linked yet. Also, I've never been able to get the catalog editor to work, even on catalogs that I've created. I've messaged Magnus so hopefully the catalog will be linked soon.

Now they work. Thanks a lot!

Note about the accuracy of added reference

Hello. I noticed an addition to the Wikidata-page about Christian Lous Lange, born 1869.


One of the titles apprrently attributed to him and published in 2005, is definitely not by him: "Portrayal of Christ in the Syriac commentary on the Diatessaron"

Perhaps that is just how inaccurately such systems work.... Via the Norwegian-language Wikipedia-article one can find several other titles by him.

For example : https://bibsys-almaprimo.hosted.exlibrisgroup.com/primo-explore/search?vid=BIBSYS&query=lsr39,exact,90274807,AND&mode=advanced&sortby=rank&lang=no_NO

Hello and thanks for the information. I can report it to the managers of SHARE Catalogue. Sometimes it happens that in this type of catalogs there are not perfect aggregations of authority records...
