The Gemeinsame Normdatei (Integrated Authority File) or GND is an international authority file for person names, subject headings and corporate bodies. It is used mainly for documentation in libraries and increasingly also by archives and museums. The GND is managed by the German National Library in cooperation with various regional library networks in German-speaking Europe and other partners.

Pattern for CURIES

Compact URIs (CURIEs) constructed from Gemeinsame Normdatei should match this regular expression:

Example CURIE
Metaregistry Gemeinsame Normdatei

The metaregistry provides mappings between the Bioregistry and other registries. There are 3 mappings to external registries for gnd with 3 unique external prefixes.

Registry Name Registry Metaprefix External Prefix Curate
BARTOC Basic Register of Thesauri, Ontologies & Classifications logo bartoc 430
FAIRSharing FAIRSharing logo fairsharing FAIRsharing.8337e2 logo miriam gnd

Providers are various services that resolve CURIEs to URLs. The example CURIE gnd:117145750 is used to demonstrate the provides available for gnd. Generation of OLS and BioPortal URLs requires additional programmatic logic beyond string formatting.
