GND web form

The GND web form is a web-based form used to enter new records for persons in the GND, or to make additions and corrections to existing records.

It is a future aim to offer web-based cataloguing for further GND entities (such as corporate bodies), too.

The GND web form is intended for use by GND users such as archives and museums which have no need for the full cataloguing capabilities.

Requirements for use

One-time registration is required before using the GND web form.

Institutions must be willing to cooperate as a GND partner as part of the GND cooperative and be in possession of an International Standard Identifier for Libraries and Related Organizations (ISIL) or a MARC Organization Code as unique identification.

Furthermore, the data which is entered should be curated and responsibility assumed for it. Please contact us if you require a list of suitable agencies for this.

Technical requirements

The web form may respond differently depending on the browser used. We have tested the form using the following browsers: Firefox 45.4.0, Chrome 33.0.1750, IE 11.0.9600.
