Wikidata is a rapidly growing database on all knowledge domains that has been in existence since 2012 and can be edited by anyone interested or supplemented by automated enrichment. Wikidata represents one of the most important data hubs of the Linked (Open) Data network.

VIAF is an aggregated standards data service with holdings from 57 national libraries and similar providers (as of Aug. 2022). VIAF establishes concordances to an entity via the standards records available for it and offers a URI to this cluster.
