ISNI in Linked Open Data




 Send to a friend

In the next months of 2019, ISNIs and basic supporting metadata will be available in several Linked Data (LD) ‘flavours’ – right now, the work is focusing on RDF/XML and JSON-LD. It will be possible to access the ISNI linked data under an open licence via two mechanisms –via API or utilizing LD data dumps. Members of the British Library and the Bibliothèque nationale de France have collaborated to specify ISNI-IA’s requirements and the ideal data model, while developers from the Leiden, Netherlands office of ISNI’s IT/systems provider OCLC are carrying out the necessary software analysis and programming.

Please contact ISNI LD coordinator Corine Deliot or Tim Devenport if you would like to know more.
