Ford: Law Classification Added to Library of Congress Linked Data Service

Kevin Ford of the Library of Congress has posted Law Classification Added to Library of Congress Linked Data Service, at In Custodia Legis.

Here are excerpts from the post:

The Library of Congress is pleased to make the K Class – Law Classification – and all its subclasses available as linked data from the LC Linked Data Service, ID.LOC.GOV. K Class joins the B, N, M, and Z Classes, which have been in beta release since June 2012. With about 2.2 million new resources added to ID.LOC.GOV, K Class is nearly eight times larger than the B, M, N, and Z Classes combined.[…]

Please explore the K Class for yourself at http://id.loc.gov/authorities/classification/K or all of the classes at http://id.loc.gov/authorities/classification. […]

As always, your feedback is important and welcomed. […] we are particularly interested in how the data available from ID.LOC.GOV is used and continue to encourage the submission of use cases describing how the community would like to apply or repurpose the LCC data. […]

For more details, please see the complete post.
