The Web NDL Authorities

The Web NDL Authorities Service provides name authorities and subject headings as Linked Data. Although the service has only Japanese UI, almost all records have English transcription so that you can search names/headings by English words. It offers about a million authority records as 15M RDF triples. Each record is described with such vocabularies as SKOS, SKOS-XL, DC and RDA Elements G2. Records are linked to LCSH, VIAF etc. with SKOS mapping properties where applicable.
