The national library of Hungary - officially named as National 
Széchényi Library (NSZL) - proudly announces that its entire OPAC and 
Digital Library and the corresponding authority data have been 
published as Linked Data. The used vocabularies are:  

oRDFDC for bibliographic data, 
oFOAF for name authority entries, and 
oSKOS for subject terms and geographical names. 

NSZL uses CoolURIs. Every resource has both RDF and HTML 
representation.  

Our RDFDC, FAOF and SKOS statements are linked together. Our name 
authority is matched with the DBPedia name files and URI aliases are 
handled as owl:sameAs statements.  

NSZL also supports the HTML link auto-discovery.  

Examples are:

OPAC records (RDFDC):
http://nektar.oszk.hu/resource/manifestation/2645471

Digital Library record (RDFDC):
http://oszkdk.oszk.hu/resource/DRJ/404

Name authority (FOAF):
http://nektar.oszk.hu/resource/auth/33589

Subject term (SKOS):
http://nektar.oszk.hu/resource/auth/magyar_irodalom

Any feedback is welcome. 

NSZL followed and adapted the Swedish LIBRIS´s practices. We are 
grateful for Martin Malmsten for his help. Skosification was done 
under the TELplus project with the precious feedbacks of Antoine 
Isaac.
