The German National Library has updated its service publishing the German library authority files as linked data. The most important change is a bugfix solving a critical flaw in the URI patterns and http redirects used so far. In the old version of the service, we incorrectly used the same URI to identify the entity and its HTML description, which was noted on the pedantic web [1]. This has now been fixed and e. g. http://d-nb.info/gnd/119053071 (identifying Herta Müller) now correctly 303s to http://d-nb.info/gnd/119053071/about/html or (when using Accept: application/rdf+xml) to http://d-nb.info/gnd/119053071/about/rdf .

There are also new RDF dumps of the datasets available.

Further information, including links to several RDF dumps, is available at [2].

Great to see - makes our library resources even more valuable for the Semantic Web!

Cheers, Joachim
