BNB export

An NQuads representation of the British National Bibliography (BNB) dataset from the British Library. (

Main differences:

  • The blank nodes used for the record, people and organisations within the set have been given simple URIs (of the form /entry/BB1000 for a record for example)

  • Birth date and Death date for authors have been recorded in the RDF, rather than left as text fields.

  • Series has also been given a URI rather than a blank node, so that they can be referenced.

  • All 'Entities' (people, organisations) are have RDF information about themselves within their own graph, as this allows for later alterations/corrections/etc.
