  • Once a dataset has been imported into Wikidata please edit the page to change the progress status from in progress to complete.
  • It is strongly recommended to use Visual Editor when making changes to this page, particularly for editing any of the tables.

Creating a Wikidata item for the datasetEdit

  • Please create a Wikidata item for the dataset, this will allow us to improve the coverage of datasets on Wikidata and understand what datasets are available on that topic and which of them have been added to Wikidata.
  • If you are working with very large dataset you can break it into smaller Mix n' Match catalogues, but only create one Wikidata item.
  • Link the dataset Wikidata item to this page using Wikidata Dataset Imports page (P5195)

Discussion of importEdit

As announced in this thread we will have the nice opportunity to get a core data set of the german film website In my opinion we should first define in which format we get the most benefit out of this data (TSV or others?). It then should be hosted where everybody can access it easily. Do we have such a free data repository? And does the data set then need necessarely a creative commons licence?
