Bulk Downloads

Bulk downloads, serialized as RDF/XML, Turtle, or N-triples, are available for the authorities and vocabularies. These may be downloaded as compressed files (Linux ZIP format with default compression level 6). When decompressed, the download files can be 10 times larger. Unless otherwise noted, each download contains MADS/RDF and SKOS/RDF representations of the data.
