Hi Dan,

Thanks !

As this thread shows, this bi-face publishing of data is (legitimately) 
controversial.
Someone has to experiment...
We'll see how it goes...

Here is an example with Dewey.info :
http://www.sudoc.fr/004471245.rdf

Some more in Sindice (http://dewey.info/class/330/):
http://sindice.com/search?q=http%3A%2F%2Fdewey.info%2Fclass%2F330%2F

Rameau is maintained by BnF. [1]
Sudoc loads and uses a copy of Rameau.
IdRef [2], our application dedicated to authority data, publishes HTML 
and RDF pages for Rameau :

    Generic document : http://www.idref.fr/035798734
    RDF document : http://www.idref.fr/035798734.rdf
    <http://www.idref.fr/035798734>

We are eager to add owl:sameAs links to an official and up-to-date 
Rameau-in-SKOS dataset. By now, such an official dataset does not exist, 
despite Antoine Isaac's bright experimental work [3]. I hope it will. I 
am sure it will (just my feeling) but i don't know when :)

[2] http://www.idref.fr
[3] http://www.cs.vu.nl/STITCH/rameau/

>   Are there other schemes?
I should have mentioned that we link to FMeSH as well. [4]
FMeSH is the French translation of MeSH.

Example    Example        Example :
             http://www.idref.fr/040697916.rdf

This record links to http://purl.org/commons/record/mesh/D004454
But these MeSH PURLS seem to be experimental.
Are there official MeSH URIs maintained bu NLM (US National Library of 
medecine) ?

Even if Rameau is preferred in our Sudoc context, we have many MARC 
records containing UDC codes or LCC terms.
We should add this information in our RDF bibliographic data.

I hope it helps
