Canadian Subject Headings in SKOS/RDF Format

Library and Archives Canada (LAC) is pleased to announce the release of Canadian Subject Headings (CSH) as linked data in SKOS/RDF format. CSH is a list of subject headings in the English language, using controlled vocabulary, to support resource discovery and express the subject content of documents about Canada and Canadian topics. French versions of these headings are established by the Université Laval Library in the Répertoire de vedettes-matière (RVM). 
 
The release of this data set is part of LAC's exploration of the potential for linked data and the Semantic Web. The release of further LAC vocabularies, metadata and open content as linked open data will be ongoing.
