MADS/RDF Namespace Document

Status: Published

Updated: 28 October 2015

Introduction

MADS/RDF (Metadata Authority Description Schema in RDF) is a knowledge organization system (KOS) designed for use with controlled values for names (personal, corporate, geographic, etc.), thesauri, taxonomies, subject heading systems, and other controlled value lists. It is closely related to SKOS, the Simple Knowledge Organization System and a widely supported and adopted RDF vocabulary. MADS/RDF has been fully mapped to SKOS. It is presented as an OWL ontology.

The MADS/RDF is designed as a data model for authority and vocabulary data used within the library and information science (LIS) community, which is inclusive of museums, archives, and other cultural institutions. For example, MADS/RDF provides a means to record data from the Machine Readable Cataloging (MARC) Authorities format in RDF for use in semantic applications and Linked Data projects.

MADS/RDF Schema Overview

The following is a non-normative overview of MADS/RDF classes and properties. This document can be referenced directly (http://www.loc.gov/standards/mads/rdf/v1.html) or indirectly by content negotiation from the MADS/RDF namespace URI (http://www.loc.gov/mads/rdf/v1#). There are three normative variants, all of which can be accessed directly also:

MADS/RDF Namespace Document - RDF/XML

MADS/RDF Namespace Document - n-triples

MADS/RDF Namespace Document - n3/turtle

A related text, the MADS/RDF Primer, provides additional details about the design and intent of MADS/RDF. There are also numerous examples.
