Title: Encoding Library of Congress Subject Headings in SKOS: Authority Control for the Semantic Web
Author: Harper, Corey A.
Abstract: This paper explores using XSLT stylesheets to translate LCSH Authority Records from MARC/XML or MADS XML formats into RDF documents according to the SKOS project's Quick Guide to Publishing a Thesaurus on the Semantic Web. Creating an RDF Data Store that represents the content of LCSH will have tremendous long-term benefits in allowing a greater breadth of applications to make full use of the relationships between concepts provided by LC Subject Headings.
