NARCISSE

The NARCISSE vocabulary "will facilitate the exchange of information among specialists in technical studies of works of art on the national and international level." (page 139)

Book: Rosa, Marco A. (Ed.)
CD ROM NARCISSE - glossaire multilangue
Lisbon, Arquivos Nacionais, Torre do Tombo
1993

The book contains a set of terms for describing works of art. Each term is given in eight languages: Portugese, Italian, Danish, Spanish, Catalan, US-English, French, and German. The terms are grouped into categories and presented in tables sorted for each language and category.

The WissKI project has created a SKOS file that is a merge of the book tables and a separate file with a hierarchy of the English labels. The latter also contains additional — mostly higher level — terms. In some cases there were naming discrepancies between both data sources. If the discrepancy could be solved, the concepts have been merged and the book table label was taken as prefered label and the hierarchy label as alternative label. If it could not be solved, the concepts are not merged.

SPARQL endpoints for authority files

We recently set up a few SPARQL endpoints for well-known authority files for testing purposes. WissKI can access such endpoints to enrich local data. Currently we provide endpoints for the following authority files:

  • Personennamendatei (Name Authority File)
  • Gemeinsame Körperschaftsdatei (Corporate Body Authority File)
  • Schlagwortnormdatei (Subject Headings Authority File)
  • Oberbegriffsdatei (Hypernym Taxonomy File)
  • Grobsystematik (Simple Subject Taxonomy File)
  • Hessische Systematik (Hessian Subject Taxonomy)

 

The SPARQL endpoints can be accessed via http://wisski1.wiss-ki.eu/authorities/ .
