Dataset: Trove People and Organisations data


The National Library of Australia operates the Trove People and
zone which allows users to
access information about significant people and organisations (parties) as
well as related biographical and contextual information.

The Trove People and Organisations dataset is based on the Australian Name
Authority File, a unique resource maintained since 1981 by Australian
libraries which contribute their holdings to Libraries
. The Trove People and
Organisations zone plays an important role in exposing records about parties
and linking to them in libraries and other collecting institutions. The data
also provides links to resources by and about a party and relationships
between parties.

To further enrich the service the Library is collaborating with organisations
that already make available information about people and organisations in
their specific domains and linking to them.

The API to this dataset provides access to 885,000 identities.
