RDF-Import from digitale-sammlungen.de fails

edited December 29, 2022

When I try to import a digitized books metadata via RDF ( https://opacplus.bsb-muenchen.de/title/BV006631386?format=rdf ) I'm only getting an error message.

"Beim Importieren der ausgewählten Datei mit "Bibliontology RDF" ist ein Fehler aufgetreten. Bitte überprüfen Sie, ob die Datei korrekt ist, und versuchen Sie es erneut."

When I use the W3C RDF Validator, everything looks fine: "Your RDF document validated successfully."

Any ideas?

System: MacOS Ventura 13.0.1 (22A400)


  • I'm not sure how you're getting that link, but "RDF" is a generic data framework — it's not a specific format that you should expect to be able to import into Zotero.

    You would import from that page into Zotero the same way you would import anything — by clicking the Save to Zotero button in the toolbar. The site supports COinS for this purpose. (COinS data quality is limited, so you may need to make additional edits, but it's a start.)
