Dear Maria,

The German National Library (DNB) publishes its complete title and authority data as linked data using http-URIs and RDF [1], as do the British Library, the Bibliothèque nationale de France and the Swedish National Library (just to mention a few).

[1] cf. http://dnb.de/EN/lds for more information.

Dear Maria,

I agree with Osma concerning the use of SKOS, RDF ans HTTP URIs. I do not know PROV either.

The French Ministry of Culture and communication developed its own software, called GINCO, to manage its controlled vocabularies. GINCO conforms to ISO 25964 and SKOS standards. You can have a look at our website (http://data.culture.fr/thesaurus). At this time, only a few vocabularies are available but you can already see how SKOS (and RDF and URIs) is used to publish our terminologies on the web.

Dear Maria,

Using SKOS implies using RDF, and using RDF nearly always implies using HTTP URIs. The reverse is not necessarily true.

One prominent national user of all these technologies is data.gov.uk.

I don't know about CPOV usage however.

Dear all,

I am looking for national authorities, preferably in EU, that uses
either CPOV, RDF, SKOS or http-URI.

So far, people of the W3C community have been so kind as to provide me
with contact information of organizations using SKOS, but I haven't
found any governmental organizations that use CPOV or http-URI.

I understand that SKOS is part of RDF, but if it's possible to use RDF
without SKOS, I would like to get in touch with those organizations as
well, preferably national authorities..

My client is a national board of digitalisation looking to recommend a
standard for all interested organizations throughout the country.
Therefore, I have to report back to them if similar boards use/recommend
either SKOS, RDF, CPOV or http-URI.

Thank you very much in advance!
