Mr Redi has four books who received the Wikisource treatment.. and then what? In response to a tweet, I was told of the existence of these books in Wikisource. I checked them on Wikidata and added Mr Redi as the author. There is nothing to indicate in Wikisource where the book came from (the BHL provided them with a DOI).
In a tweet, the BHL indicated that they are interested in books that received the Wikisource treatment. So lets consider where we are:
- Wikisource has many great books transcribed and available as an ebook
- It is not known outside of Wikisource what books are available in what quality and where they came from
- We could have this information in Wikidata. It will give a clue what is available; we can query for the books when they are in Wikidata
- What is the purpose of Wikisource if it is not for people to read all these fine books?
