Hi. VIAF recently added CONOR ID (P1280)[1], so what is the best way to import the CONOR ID from VIAF that are not yet on Wikidata? --Sporti (talk) 08:21, 2 July 2019 (UTC)

External identifiersEdit

Hi All,

I wrote a proposal about expanding the statements regarding external identifiers, please have a look and add your opinions:,_best_practice --Adam Harangozó (talk) 15:27, 1 November 2019 (UTC)

Best practices for a subject with multiple VIAF entries?Edit

Russell Iredell (Q77506786) appears to have three VIAF IDs, one each for ISNI, ULAN, and BNF. There are many similar cases like this. Should all VIAF IDs be added to the item? Should the VIAF IDs be added to Wikidata:WikiProject Authority control/VIAF errors? (I don't quite understand the message "Please do not report clusters which need only to be merged..."). Please advise, thanks. -Animalparty (talk) 03:57, 7 December 2019 (UTC)
