NAME

Catmandu::Store::VIAF - Retrieve items from VIAF

SYNOPSIS

This module contains a store to lookup a viaf_id in VIAF.

  lookup_in_store(authortName, VIAF, lang:'nl-NL', fallback_lang:'en-US')

DESCRIPTION

  lookup_in_store(
    authorName,
    AAT,
    lang: 'nl-NL',
    fallback_lang: 'en-US'
  )

The lang parameter is optional and defaults to nl-NL. It sets the language of the returned prefLabel. If no prefLabel for the viaf_id in provided lang exists, the prefLabel for the fallback_lang is used.

The store takes the dc:identifier of a Person from VIAF and returns the following data:

  {
    'dcterms:identifier' => 'The identifier',
    'guid'               => 'The VIAF URL',
    'schema:birthDate'   => 'Birth date, if provided',
    'schema:deathDate'   => 'Death date, if provided',
    'schema:description' => 'Description, if provided',
    'skos:prefLabel'     => 'prefLabel, in lang or fallback_lang'
  }

PARAMETERS

Optional parameters

lang

Language of the returned skos:prefLabel. Falls back to fallback_lang if none was found. Use IETF language tags.
