Subject: WIkipedia to add VIAF Identifiers
Date: Mon, 30 Jul 2012 17:26:22 -0400
This is a very welcome development in the gradual convergence of biography, factual biography and bioliography CNI has been seeking to encourage. I have not seen much about this work; basically, linkages will be built between the biographical entries in Wikipedia and the VIAF author name authority files.


My thanks to Peter Brantley for the pointer to this work.
