The Bibliothèque nationale de France has designed a new project in order to make its data more useful on the Web. This 'data.bnf.fr' project is still at an early stage. Our project is to gather data from our different databases, so as to create Web pages about Works and Authors, together with a RDF view on the extracted data. This involves transforming existing data, enriching and interlinking the dataset with internal and external resources, and publishing HTML pages. Our purpose is to build HTML pages from this data (about major authors and Works) so that the benefits can immediately be seen.The raw data would also be accessible in RDF following the principles of linked data.
