VIAF RDF Vocabulary Changes and Additions

Currently planned for September 16

We continue to turn our attention to updating and enhancing the VIAF API. In addition to our recent announcements about XML modifications and fixes implemented in August, we are also planning some vocabulary changes and additions to the RDF output. These changes, currently planned for a September 16 install, will allow for richer descriptions and bring the dataset in line with our general strategy to build upon the vocabulary.
