In 2019 BNE ecnriched 80K+ authority records with data from then mapped BNE IDs with Wikidata IDs from VIAF dump. @3186Ricardo notes concerns about Wikidata - ignores P737 (influenced by)

Really pleased that @3186Ricardo is talking about how datos.bne.es has been looking at data enhancement based on links to other data sources - it feels like first practical use of the linked nature of the data I’ve seen today

Interesting presentation by @digitopia_nl on linked data from KB national library in Netherlands. Not sure about the use of schema:role for author pseudonyms - schema:PerformanceRole feels like it would be a better fit?

Researchers need the best tools to advance their work in science and medicine. We’re proud to fund 40+ software projects used by thousands of scientists daily bit.ly/34YhzX1

V pleased to say this includes OpenRefine - so looking forward to working on this. We're going to be working to attract new contributors by improving documentation, and implementing a new data model to improve the scalability, transparency, and reproducibility of OR workflows.
