#Wikisource in #Wikidata


Wikisource is finding its way into Wikidata. It is different. The Wikipedia article about a book is something considered relevant in any language.

Wikisource provides an integral text in one language. Much of the information about a source is therefore relevant only in that language. The characters in that source are all in that one language. It may even be that the names of characters are different from one edition to another.

It is early days for Wikisource in Wikidata. It will be interesting to see it develop.
