More information about projects held with the NLW volunteer team can be found here

Projects in development

  • Dictionary of Welsh Biography - A request for funding is being considered by the library to contract a third party developer to create a bespoke interface/timeline to visualize and explore the Dictionary of Welsh Biography. The interface would be powered by Wikidata and images from Wiki Commons and would link to Dictionary of Welsh Biography and Wikipedia content. This would cement the libraries commitment to contributing to Wikimedia projects and making use of Wikimedia services and content to develop its own innovative online infrastructure.
  • The sum of All Welsh literature - This project will see the creation of Wikidata items for every piece of Welsh literature in our catalogues. (around 350,000)
