The National Gallery of Art (NGA) Library Bibliographic Records contain descriptive and subjective information about books and other library collections. The NGA Library Bibliographic IDs, which are system-generated IDs assigned by our LSP (Alma), can provide access to the records in the library's online catalog (Mercury). In particular, users can access bibliographic information about artists' vertical files that are used as references in the NGA Library's PCC Wikidata Pilot project.

  •   Comment the formatter URL seems to be inconsistent with the samples (currently just a different url). --- Jura 09:53, 9 February 2021 (UTC)
  • Thank you for your comment! I updated the formatter URL to avoid the confusion. Both of the formatter URLs are supposed to lead to the same record. Sbae2020
