This is a simplistic conversion tool to make the Multilingual Dictionary of Cataloging Terms and Concepts (MulDiCat) available as SKOS. More information about MulDiCat can be found at: http://www.ifla.org/en/publications/multilingual-dictionary-of-cataloguing-terms-and-concepts-muldicat MulDiCat is currently made available as a table in a Word document. Ideally there would be software managing the concept scheme, which would allow edits, and provide an audit trail--this script is only meant to demonstrate the use of SKOS. For your convenience the current MulDiCat SKOS file is in the same directory as this README file: MuldiCat.rdf. Follow these steps to convert a new version of the Word document into RDF/XML. 1. Open the Word document in Open Office 2. Create a new spreadsheet: File -> New -> Spreadsheet 3. Select the table: Table -> Select -> Table 4. Copy the table: Edit -> Copy 5. Paste the table into the first cell of the spreadsheet: Edit -> Paste 6. Save as CSV: File -> Save As -> Set File Type: Text CSV 7. Convert to RDF: rdfize.py Muldicat.csv > Muldicat.rdf Requirements: - Open Office - Python - rdflib - lxml Questions, comments, complaints: - Ed Summers <firstname.lastname@example.org>
