Challenge Project

Multilingual library search

Based on Wikidata

In Switzerland each linguistic region is working with different authority files for authors and organizations, situation which brings difficulties for the end user when he is doing a search.

Goal of the Hackathon: work on a innovative solution as the library landscape search platforms will change in next years. Possible solution: Multilingual Entity File which links to GND, BnF, ICCU Authority files and Wikidata to bring end user information about authors in the language he wants.
