In a new case study, Get your vocabularies in Wikidata…so Europeana and others can use them, we describe the practical steps data providers can take to upload and align their vocabularies with Wikidata, so that we can access the links and integrate the data into Europeana.
So far, when deciding which sources to link to, we have selected large, rather generic and multilingual data sources and favoured ones that are well-connected, that is, those which indicate equivalent elements in other vocabularies. However besides our ’centralized’ enrichment, Europeana would also benefit from some of the more ‘local’ semantic resources used by our data partners, which are often the result of tremendous data curation efforts. And so we are encouraging our data partners to add these resources to Wikidata.
