Different evolution scenario for Wikidata-centered CC0 books data

  • either inventaire becomes the central point for sub-Wikidata books data
  • or another project takes this role (Wikidata itself?) and inventaire will be glad to make its CC0 data easy to import there

Long term vision: get book lovers, librarians, bookshops to contribute to an open contributive database on books, ALL THE BOOKS
