The project Interlinking Pictura (IP) addresses challenges like: connecting this distributed knowledge and enriching it with more data following a specific research question - by bridging Citizen Science with Open Educational Resources (OER). The IP project is built on semantic wiki platform and involves open linked data to enrich the corpus. In IP the object of interest is the multilingual "Bilderbuch für Kinder" (illustrated book for children) by F. J. Bertuch (1790-1830), which is one of the earliest encyclopedias for children and a milestone in the development of educational resources.
