Nbvok is the vocabulary service provided by the National Library of Norway, containing controlled vocabularies represented as open linked data according to the SKOS-ontology. Our vocabularies are published using the Skosmos application. SKOSMOS is developed by the National Library of Finland and designed particularly with user-friendly navigation in structured vocabularies in mind.

Our vocabulary data may also be accessed through a REST-API. Try also the Swagger interface
