Open Data Sources
There is a great deal of freely-available data which may be useful to add to your local VuFind® instance. Authority records from large organizations and standards bodies can help augment your index with cross-references, and Open Access publications can expand the collection that you present to your users.
This page links to a variety of open resources that you might find useful, most of which can be harvested and ingested using standard VuFind® tools. Feel free to add new sources as you find them.
- free, general purpose authority data for names, subjects and more
- medical subject headings
Potentially Relevant Projects
- A list of complementary projects not currently consumed by core VuFind tools, but potentially worth investigating in the future.
- In the past, there was some discussion about building a shared VuFind index of open content. The project never moved past the idea stage, but if you are interested, you can join the discussion on the VUFIND-570 JIRA ticket
