Talk:Remembering Adrianne Wadewitz by National Collaborative for Women's History Sites[edit]

This ticket link does not work for me. Has anything changed in the interface? Does the link work wor you? Ankry (talk) 06:05, 9 May 2014 (UTC)

Ankry, I'm no longer on the OTRS ticket team, so I can't view it myself. -- Cirt (talk) 14:39, 9 May 2014 (UTC)
I've left a message at User talk:Clarkcj12 for User:Clarkcj12 to help with fixing this. -- Cirt (talk) 14:41, 9 May 2014 (UTC)
Can you check this to see if it now works for you also? -- Cirt (talk) 20:21, 9 May 2014 (UTC)

Automated import of openly licensed scholarly articles[edit]

Hello Ankry,

We are putting together a proposal about the automated import of openly licensed scholarly articles, and since you are an active Wikisourceror, we'd appreciate yourcomments on the Scriptorium. For convenience, I'm copying our proposal here:

The idea of systematically importing openly licensed scholarly articles into Wikisource has popped up from time to time. For instance, it formed the core of WikiProject Academic Papers and is mentioned in the Wikisource vision. However, the Wikiproject relied on human power, never reached its full potential, and eventually became inactive. The vision has yet to materialise.
We plan to bridge the gap through automation. We are a subset of WikiProject Open Access (user:Daniel Mietchen, user:Maximilanklein, user:MattSenate), and we have funding from the Open Society Foundations via Wikimedia Deutschland to demo suitable workflows at Wikimania (see project page).
Specifically, we plan to import Open Access journal articles into Wikisource when they are cited on Wikipedia. The import would be performed by a group of bots intended to make reference handling more interoperable across Wikimedia sites. Their main tasks are:
  • (on Wikipedia) signalling which references are openly licensed, and link them to the full text on Wikisource, the media on Commons and the metadata on Wikidata;
  • (on Commons) importing images and other media associated with the source article;
  • (on Wikisource) importing the full text of the source article and embedding the media in there;
  • (on Wikidata) handling the metadata associated with the source article, and signalling that the full text is on Wikisource and the media on Commons.
These Open Access imports on Wikisource will be linked to and from other Wikimedia sister sites. Our first priority though will be linking from English Wikipedia, focusing on the most cited Open Access papers, and the top-100 medical articles.
In order to move forward with this, we need
  • General community approval
  • Community feedback on workflows and scrutiny on our test imports in specific.
  • Bot permission. For more technical information read our bot spec on Github.

You must first obtain permission before running a Bot on Wikisource. --EncycloPetey (talk) 22:50, 11 November 2015 (UTC)


May I answer you here at your talk page with regard to your request? Londonjackbooks (talk) 13:48, 22 January 2018 (UTC)

@Londonjackbooks: Sure. Ankry (talk) 13:50, 22 January 2018 (UTC)
I will look into seeing whether I can find a scanned copy of the work (or request a scan). If not, perhaps an interlibrary loan, in which case, I might be able to scan myself—depending on the condition of the book &c. It may take some time, but I will keep you posted. Londonjackbooks (talk) 13:56, 22 January 2018 (UTC)
It would be great if you succed. I would appreciate this very much. (For tracking: this section is about: M. Koroway-Metelicki, Poezye, Petersburg 1893.) Ankry (talk) 14:09, 22 January 2018 (UTC)
Have placed an interlibrary loan request with my local library. Requested scan (if available), and if not, physical copy. Crossing fingers :) Londonjackbooks (talk) 14:13, 22 January 2018 (UTC)
Current status of the ILL is "Awaiting Conditional Processing", which means a lending library is attaching further questions or conditions about the loan request. Londonjackbooks (talk) 12:44, 31 January 2018 (UTC)

Have hit a roadblock. Received the following message:

A request you placed for:

Title: Poezye
Author: Koroway-Metelicki, Michal
Format: Book

has been cancelled by the interlibrary loan staff for the following reason: ____ Public Library cannot borrow this item as we do not have the archival controls necessary to safeguard its condition.

I will try to contact the holding library directly about the possibility of getting scans. Londonjackbooks (talk) 20:50, 9 February 2018 (UTC)
