+    <p>A large amount of RDF data is available as part of the Linked Data [[LINKED-DATA]] cloud.
+    Datasets are being published and interlinked on the Web using RDF, and many of them offer

+    in the examples above include:</p>
+    <ul>
+      <li><a href="http://www.wikidata.org/">Wikidata</a>, a free, collaborative and multilingual database and ran by the
+      <a href="http://www.wikimedia.org/">Wikimedia Foundation</a></li>
+      <li><a href="http://dbpedia.org/">DBpedia</a>, publishing data extracted
+      from <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Help:Infobox">Wikipedia infoboxes</a>.
+      <li><a href="http://www.europeana.eu/">Europeana</a>, publishing data about cultural objects from
+      a large number of European institutions</li>
+      <li><a href="http://viaf.org/">VIAF</a>, publishing data about people, works and geographic places
+      from a number of national libraries and other agencies.</li>
