Bibliographic bot for Wikidata

  • Problem: Many references on Wikidata only consist of an URL (P854).
  • Who would benefit: Wikidata and all projects using its data
  • Proposed solution: Based on reference URL, retrieve (with a bot?) related information (title, language, publication date, author, page, ISBN/ISSN, etc.) and add them to the reference. Data to be added will depend on the source type (book, article, website, etc.).
