Cross-linking based on PND-BEACON

PND-BEACON is a very simple harvesting protocol for finding persons by their unique identifier (ID) in the Per­so­nen­namendatei (PND). The PND IDs of all persons available in our online edition are available in our PND-BEACON feed at Using this feed, other projects are enabled to automatically offer links to records in this edition.

The list of IDs is created at runtime and contains every PND ID we know of. Additional persons are added from time to time, so we recommend re-importing the list from time to time.
