Gemeinsame Normdatei (GND)

The Gemeinsame Normdatei (GND) dataset combines the existing Personennamendatei (Name Authority File, PND), Gemeinsame Körperschaftsdatei (Corporate Body Authority File, GKD), Subject Headings Authority File (SWD) and Uniform Title File of the Deutsches Musikarchiv into a single universal authority file (GND). These authority files are mainly used in descriptions of cultural and scientific resources.

In the PND all names of persons important for descriptive and subject cataloguing as well as for national cataloguing projects are brought together.

The GKD is the relevant norm data file for German and foreign corporate body names in the German speaking area.

The SWD provides a normed, terminologically controlled vocabulary. It consists of concepts, events, places, buildings and other entities that are subject of a resource.
