RDF/XML Files

The subscription service to the British National Bibliography ceased with weekly issue number 3170 which was made available for download in early December 2011. The British National Bibliography continues to exist as an online service at http://bnb.bl.uk.

The weekly files are made available in a basic RDF/XML representation as documented in this mapping table (PDF format 68 KB). Not all fields are present in the source MARC 21 records, but when they are, they are output as described in the mapping. These files are distributed under a Creative Commons CC0 1.0 Universal Public Domain Dedication licence. For further details about our terms and conditions, please see here.

The RDF/XML files covering the most recent 25 weeks will be available to download below.
