dotNetRDF is an .Net 3.5 API for manipulating RDF written in C# targeting primarily Microsoft platforms but with Mono builds also available (though considerably less stable). The library is relatively immature compared to other open source .Net offerings such as SemWeb and LinqToRdf but is currently more actively developed and maintained.

dotNetRDF is designed to be a flexible and extensible API and currently provides integration with 6 different Triple Stores including AllegroGraph, 4store, Joseki, Sesame, Talis and Virtuoso

It also provides a comprehensive SPARQL implementation that already includes support for many of the SPARQL 1.1 features currently being specified by the W3C working group
