Mix'n'Match tool and Italian data
The SBN (National Library Service) authority file has been added to Mix'n'Match tool created by Magnus Manske to understand whether a record on an extern catalogue corresponds a Wikidata element. This is a fundamental step forward in the collaboration with Italian libraries at its highest level of integrating bibliographic data with international projects. The ongoing work has found until now 10.114 data corresponding out of a total of more than 100.000. An Italian version of tool instructions is in progress, an English version will follow as soon as the Italian version is ready.
