ANN: Sudoc bibliographic ans authority data


Sudoc [1], the French academic union catalogue maintained by ABES [2], 
has just been released as linked open data.

10 million bibliographic records are now available as RDF/XML.

Examples for the Sudoc record whose internal id is 132133520 :
. Resource URI :
. Generic document : (content negotiation 
is supported)
. RDF/XML page :
. HTML pages with microdata [3] for search engines : . The users are not supposed to visit 
these microdata pages : they are redirected to the standard UI :

Sudoc RDF data are linked to and .

They are also linked to IdRef [4], ie the Sudoc authority file that ABES 
considers as a separate and open application.
2 million IdRef records are also available as RDF data (since October 2010).
The links between Sudoc and IdRef are bidirectional.
For example, (// /Rethinking symbolism/ 
by Dan Sperber ) links to D. Sperber's IdRef URI: .
But, in the other direction, links to 
*all* the Sudoc documents that are linked to this authority.

In next months, we hope to add more links to our data, to OCLC and BnF 
resources among others.
