CiNii Books RDF for Libraries Format Specification

When you access to the following URI, you can obtain the data with RDF / XML format.
http://ci.nii.ac.jp/library/<LiblaryID>.rdf (ex: http://ci.nii.ac.jp/library/FA012943.rdf)

Content Negotiation is also acceptable. Even if RDF URI is not be specified, RDF will respond by recognition from HTTP header. In the Library Details Page of CiNii Books(For example: http://ci.nii.ac.jp/library/FA012943) 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.
