CiNii Books RDF for Books & Journals Format Specification

When you access to the following URI, you can obtain the data with JSON-LD format. What information you can obtain is as the same as "CiNii Books JSON-LD for Books and Journals"
http://ci.nii.ac.jp/ncid/<ncid>.rdf (ex: http://ci.nii.ac.jp/ncid/BB08796640.rdf)

Content Negotiation is also acceptable. Even if RDF URI is not be specified, RDF will respond by recognition from HTTP header. At the Books and Journals Details Page in CiNii Books (For example:http://ci.nii.ac.jp/ncid/BB08796640), specification of "application/rdf+xml" in Accept field of HTTP request header has much priority than any other specifications, it will induce automatically to RDF URI.

"Access-Control-Allow-Origin*" is required on http header for response, and it is available to use asynchronous communication between cross domains.
