A few months ago, as part of our WikiProject Vanderbilt Fine Arts Gallery, we received permission to upload Public Domain works from the Vanderbilt Fine Arts Gallery to Wikimedia Commons, where they will be more accessible to the public.
The latest about what I've been working on
After recently making a trip to Puerto Rico that was primarily focused on bird watching, I decided to write a blog post to pass on some of what we learned. Much of the information that we got from books or the Internet was outdated or incorrect, so hopefully this post will help others to have an easier time finding good places to bird there.
One of the issues I discussed at my recent talk in the Art in Context: Identity, Ethics, and Insight symposium was the problem of representing anonymous artists in knowledge graphs. The solution that the Wikidata community has accepted is to associate a P170 (creator) claim with a
somevalue snak having a P3831 (object has role) qualifier value of Q4233718 (anonymous). In RDF, this corresponds to a blank node and Wikidata claims using
somevalue are represented by blank nodes in the Query Service.
