If someone ever develops this, it needs to be done with the greatest of care. If not, such a tool could produce excessive duplicate and wrongly modeled items, producing a huge amount of work for the community to clean up. See https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Wikidata:WikiProject_Books for some input on modeling. This community needs to be consulted. - Books need to conform to the FRBR description model, in order to conform with the level of data quality that libraries also apply. This tool needs to make sure all necessary items on work and edition/translation level are checked and created if necessary. - Make sure the end user, even if they are beginners, do correct matching with existing authors, publishers, locations of publishing. I'm actually not sure what would need to be done if new items need to be created at this level... do we even want that? - Avoid creation of duplicates (duplicate works, editions, authors, publishers, locations of publishing). Other input very welcome. I'd rather see no tool than one that introduces large amounts of erroneous data.
