Cooperation with the Theater Institute

Author: VitVit, CC BY-SA 3.0

Jan Purkert, a Wikidatist-resident from the Theater Institute, (“User:Purkii“) continues to connect people in the IDU Virtual Study with Wikidata records. Thanks to access to non-public information about the dates of birth of persons in the IDU, he was able to automatically link part of the database. He connected 15,000 people and thanks to the intercession of Wikidat, the formatting of the link to The Virtual Study now works: https://vis.idu.cz/Persons.aspx?personId=$1. We put the rest of the people in the Mix’n’Match catalog so the community could help. Intern Dominika Kuntzmannová (“User:Dominika1812“) will also take part in the manual work on connections. We are preparing a blog post summarizing the results of this year’s cooperation.
