    even simple bookshelves The following are some different uses for portals Subjects based on the Library of Congress Classification Example Portal Physics Groups of works linked by a common feature Example Portal National Archives and Records Administration Collection Non author people People who have not authored any works themselves can be represented by a portal Example Portal Joe Hooper These pages may move between the Portal and Author namespaces as more information becomes available Corporate authors Entities that are recorded as the author but are not real people Example Portal NASA Publishers Example Portal Charles Scribner s Sons What goes into a portal edit Portals can contain a wide variety of content in order to fulfill their function Material from any other namespace as well as limited material from sister projects can be included to give Wikisource users a complete overview of the subject One of the main roles of a portal on Wikisource is to index and organise a subject area for the benefit of everyone from new readers to experienced editors Portals should bring together everything Wikisource has to offer about the subject A portal should list all of the available works in some way with additions such as annotations if necessary Red links can be used to show missing works as a guide to future additions to the library 1 The same goes for authors writing within the subject relevant author pages can be linked to and listed as well Portals are more than just a list which can be achieved more easily with categories Portals provide more information and context for the items they contain than would be possible with a category They can also be used to highlight certain works or authors suggest ideas for work that needs to be done explain Wikisource s policy or style and more Portals also bring together Categories The bottom up identification of existing pages with topics When adding categories to this section be sure to include the leading colon a portal is about showing what is being categorized and not about categorizing the portal itself Topics The top down structure that helps us to know the annotated relationships between its elements and which by the use of red links lets us know what is still missing Projects The newsletters that tell us what is being done in a topic what needs to be done and which users are interested in it Classification of portals edit See Help Portal classification All portals on Wikisource are classified within a locally adapted version of the Library of Congress Classification system This system is intended to make navigation within the portal space as simple as possible using a reliable and recognised classification system The classification is made up of a 2 3 letter call number which is added as part of the portal header This in turn adds standard links and categories to the portal to form a navigable and organised structure The top level portal is Portal Portals There the 23

  • Wikisource:Author names - Wikisource, the free online library
    Wikisource Authors There may also be duplication of names and initials across all authors leading to unnecessary confusion In the latter case Wikisource can use disambiguation pages but this may be unnecessary or preferable only as a back up to using the correct name Wikipedia does not use this naming convention being an encyclopaedia rather than a library and includes initials in the page names of its articles as standard This potentially makes linking between projects problematic Some authors may have chosen to be known in a certain way and are more commonly known by this name Some users of Wikisource believe that the most commonly used name should be first preference with other names as redirects Other users believe that the wishes of the author should be respected regarding how they are known Full name Common name Author James Matthew Barrie Author J M Barrie Author Thomas Stearns Eliot Author T S Eliot Author Clarence Michael James Stanislaus Dennis Author C J Dennis Author Edith Nesbit Author E Nesbit Author William Matthew Flinders Petrie Author Flinders Petrie Author Adeline Virginia Woolf Author Virginia Woolf Author Homer Technical edit The template Initials can be placed on author pages to indicate that an initial has been used in the page name and that the page should be moved if and when the initial can be expanded It appears like so This Author page uses initials in the subject s name rather than fully spelling out each name Additional research is required to move this Author page to its full proper title at which point we can remove this notice If an author s page has been updated with full name information please advise at the Scriptorium to have it moved Other names edit Many authors use a pen name nom de plume nickname or other pseudonym Some use more than one alternative name for a variety of reasons Some authors are more famous as their pseudonym rather than their full name This creates a situation similar to the use of full names Full name Common name Author Samuel Langhorne Clemens Author Mark Twain Author Samuel Clemens Author Eric Arthur Blair Author George Orwell In cases where an author has multiple pseudonyms the full name can have other names redirecting to it Where only one pseudonym exists the choice is still a matter of debate between the full name and the cited name Wikipedia and other sister projects use the common name However pseudonyms create an even bigger sorting problem on Wikisource because the surname may not be the same potentially putting the pseudonym and the real name on completely different pages rather than merely out of order on one page Titles such as Pope King Lord Sir etc should not be used in the page name even if they are the common name of the author In these cases the title can still be used in the author template or mentioned in the description Untitled name Common name Author George Gordon

    that any problems that can occur have already occurred and have been solved DjVu files are less likely to cause problems with the ProofreadPage Extension or Wikisource in general Smaller files DjVu files are generally smaller than an equivalent PDF file With exceptionally large documents this can help fit within Wikimedia Commons 100MB filesize limit This was a stronger advantage in the past when the size limit was much smaller Compatible philosophy The DjVu format is and always has been an open format while the PDF was originally a proprietary format owned by Adobe This can give DjVus the edge in the opinion of some Wikimedians whose personal philosophies lean that way Disadvantages edit Lower resolution DjVu files have a lower resolution than PDFs For the most part this is not a problem for proofreading as long as text is legible It can be a problem with smaller text of text on the borderline of legibility This might be a problem for illustrations and other images if the images are being extracted from the file 1 Glyphs Due to the compression system used in DjVu files some glyphs letters numbers and other symbols may be incorrect The pixels of each page are divided into symbols and a dictionary of these symbols is then created The pages are then encoded by describing which symbols from the dictionary appear where Therefore the page image may not always be an exact representation of the original work Note that this should only happen with poor quality lossy compression Less external support The DjVu format is not as widely supported as PDF There is less software available for creating and editing files in this format PDF edit Portable Document Format PDF is a file format used to represent documents in a manner independent of application software hardware and operating systems Each PDF file encapsulates a complete description of a fixed layout flat document including the text fonts graphics and other information needed to display it In 1991 Adobe Systems co founder John Warnock outlined a system called Camelot that evolved into PDF While the PDF specification has been available free of charge since at least 2001 PDF was originally a proprietary format controlled by Adobe It was officially released as an open standard on July 1 2008 and published by the International Organization for Standardization as ISO 32000 1 2008 In 2008 Adobe published a Public Patent License to ISO 32000 1 granting royalty free rights for all patents owned by Adobe that are necessary to make use sell and distribute PDF compliant implementations Excerpted from Portable Document Format on Wikipedia the free encyclopedia In the early days of Wikimedia PDFs were not allowed to be hosted on Commons or Wikisource because it was not an open standard This ended in 2008 when the format was released by Adobe Following this change PDFs can be freely uploaded to Wikimedia Commons and the ProofreadPage extension has been adapted to be compatible with this format Advantages edit

for further information Classes E F History of the Americas edit The Library of Congress Classification system has two classes that cover the history of the Americas Class E covers the United States while Class F covers the local history of the United States in addition to the history of British America Canada Dutch America French America Latin America and Spanish America At the time this classification system was implemented Wikisource already had Portal States of the United States with subportals for each state Therefore this was used as the equivalent of Class E with little change to the pre existing portal Class F was left to cover all other aspects of the history of the Americas including any aspects of United States history that applies to more than one state New classes X I edit During implementation of the system it was necessary to create two entirely new classes unique to Wikisource Both use one of the letters omitted from the original classification system First some pre existing indices on Wikisource did not fit into the Library of congress Classification system In order to accommodate these the new Class X Wikisource was created X being a traditional wildcard term This class is generally for Wikisource specific classification Subclasses are added to Class X as and when a situation arises where one is needed starting with subclasses for WikiProjects and specific eras ie Ancient Medieval etc Second there was another pre existing index Texts by Country and its subportals and indices that did not easily fit any class in the system These portals were national indices that covered each nation in general instead of the LCCS s more specialised areas history of law of literature of etc Instead of dismantling or severely modifying a functioning index this was declared to be a new Class I I was the first unused letter in the alphabet Each portal in this class serves as a hub for that nation including works and or linking to more specialised portals as necessary Class K Law edit Class K of the Library of Congress Classification system already makes extensive use of the third letter of the classification which makes some adaptation as described above more difficult Subclasses could not always be created by adding a letter some were created by changing the existing third letter to the nearest unused letter Others required more drastic alterations changing the second letter of the classification for a batch of subjects and then selecting appropriate third letters from there The complete list of subclasses is extensive and can be found at Portal Law Subclasses New Law Subclasses Original classification New classification Code Title Code Title K Law general KA Law general KD Law of the United Kingdom and Ireland KD Law of the

    If the serial work is represented on Wikisource in instalments it will be difficult to read A reader may not be interested in the rest of a periodical and they might be confused the subpage structure or separate pages As an editor it can be awkward to link up the different parts of a work when it is spread over different pages and not sequential subpages It would just be convenient to have everything in the same place It would be especially convenient for that place to be at the root level 1 and not a subpage of anything else However the periodical for example needs to be represented properly as well A different reader may want to read the whole periodical as it was on original publication Wikisource s dedication to faithfulness requires that the whole work be hosted in a manner that matches the original Attempting to merge the product of several print publications into one page in the main namespace would be a somewhat fraudulent synthetic work it would misrepresent the original and it may cause some technical problems for the software on which Wikisource runs Most of the same is true of creating fake scans using just the combined bits from multiple sources to create a complete if stitched together edition for proofreading and transclusion A solution edit Wikisource is data on a computer not print on paper As the proofread pages are held in the workspace the Index and Page namespaces and transcluded across to the main namespace they can simply be transcluded twice or more if necessary The different instalments should be transcluded into the periodical as normal They can also be transcluded as subpages of a separate root level instance of the whole work It would be as if each instalment were a separate chapter under a root level table of contents If the work is already in sections or chapters they can be split up as normal for subpages as long as no instalment overlaps with another Poems or other elements can be extracted from a page into the root level as well as being in their proper place in a larger work This can be done with Labeled Section Transclusion LST Wikisource still has one version of the work It is just being presented in alternative ways via transclusion IMPORTANT NOTE Different editions cannot be combined as then you would no longer have a link to a specific publication All instalments must come from the same series of the serial work If a work was serialised in Alphamagazine in 1920 then all instalments have to come from the 1920 run in Alphamagazine If it was also later serialised in Betamagazine in 1930 or even a later reprint run in Alphamagazine in 1925 the different runs cannot be mixed under the same root level page It could not be for example chapter 1 and 2 of Foo from Alphamagazine 1920 followed by chapter 3 from Alphamagazine 1925 followed by the final chapter
