This is a community page for links to SKOS data in RDF.
Below, you'll find some SKOS datasets which had been advertised to the community before this listing effort, or that have been created afterwards. There are also probably some other datasets at the Data Hub (CKAN), using the format-skos tag. See this page

Records are linked to LCSH, VIAF etc. with SKOS mapping properties where applicable. The service delivers HTML, RDF/XML or Turtle representation depending on the request's accept header, or explicit extension (.html, .rdf, .ttl respectively) (example). It also provides a SPARQL endpoint. Further examples: Jane Austen and art installations.
