The German National Library (DNB) has published the German library authority files as linked data. The dataset consists of 1.8 Mill differentiated persons from the PND (Personennamendatei, Name authority file), 187.000 subject headings from the SWD (Schlagwortnormdatei, Subject headings authority file), 1.3 Mill corporate bodies from the GKD (Gemeinsame Körperschaftsdatei, Corporate Body Authority file), and 51,000 classes from the German translation of the Dewey Decimal Classification (DDC).

Further information, including links to RDF dumps, is available at [1].

We hope that this will be a useful addition to the linked data cloud and look forward to your feedback.

All the best,
