The Resource List ontology describes collections of Items grouped together in Sections and explicitly ordered. Items refer to resources, currently bibo:Documents. The ontology subclasses SIOC for Container and Item relationships as well as providing additional properties for explicit ordering and optimisations for retrieving deeply structured Lists. The Resource List ontology is intended for use describing academic reading lists, bookmarks, bibliographies and similar structured collections of references. [en]

History

Namespace

The URI for this vocabulary is

http://purl.org/vocab/resourcelist/schema#

When abbreviating terms the suggested prefix is resource

Each class or property in the vocabulary has a URI constructed by appending a term name to the vocabulary URI. For example:

http://purl.org/vocab/resourcelist/schema#AlternativeItem

Properties and Classes

Alternative

URI: http://purl.org/vocab/resourcelist/schema#alternative

The alternative property is used to relate one item to another as an alternative.

Semantics

Having this property implies being an Item. Every value of this property is a resourcelist:AlernativeItem.

Status

Alternative Item

URI: http://purl.org/vocab/resourcelist/schema#AlternativeItem

An Alternative Item is an Item that is used specifically as an alternative to the Item it is associated with. This allows resource list creators to specify alternative resources when the core items on their list are unavailable, or simply in addition to them within a given context.

Semantics

Being a member of this class implies also being a member of Item.

Status

Created Date

URI: http://purl.org/vocab/resourcelist/schema#created

This property is used to capture the date a list, item, or section was created

Semantics

Having this property implies being genid28. Every value of this property is a xsd:date.

Status

Description

URI: http://purl.org/vocab/resourcelist/schema#description

This property is used to provide a description of a Resource List.

Semantics

Having this property implies being a Resource List. Every value of this property is a xsd:string.

Status

Draft

URI: http://purl.org/vocab/resourcelist/schema#status-draft

This State is used to indicate that something is Draft.

Status

Item

URI: http://purl.org/vocab/resourcelist/schema#Item

An Item represents a resource in the context of the list in which it is contained. This differs from the resource itself in that a resource may be referenced in many lists or many times within a single list. Item provides the means to contextualize the specific reference to a resource on each list.

Semantics

Being a member of this class implies also being a member of spec:Item. Having Resource or Alternative implies being a member of this class.

Status

Last Updated Date

URI: http://purl.org/vocab/resourcelist/schema#lastUpdated

This property is used to capture the date a list, item, or section last updated

Semantics

Having this property implies being genid32. Every value of this property is a xsd:date.

Status

List Used By

URI: http://purl.org/vocab/resourcelist/schema#usedBy

The usedBy property relates a List to the those rdf:resources that refer to it.

Semantics

Having this property implies being a Resource List.

Status

Published

URI: http://purl.org/vocab/resourcelist/schema#status-published

This State is used to indicate that something is Published.

Status

Resource List

URI: http://purl.org/vocab/resourcelist/schema#List

A Resource List represents an ordered collection of Items each which refers to a resource (currently bibo:Documents) for such purposes as managing a bibliography, circulating a reading list or similar.

Semantics

Being a member of this class implies also being a member of sioc:Container and rdf:Seq. Having Contains, List Used By or Description implies being a member of this class. Things are a member of this class if they are the value of List or Uses Resource List.

Status

Section

URI: http://purl.org/vocab/resourcelist/schema#Section

A Section denotes a grouping of resources within a Resource List that are considered related in some way.

Semantics

Being a member of this class implies also being a member of msg0:Container and rdf:Seq.

Status

Uses Resource List

URI: http://purl.org/vocab/resourcelist/schema#usesList

The usesList property is used to relate any rdf:resource to a Resource List it makes use of.

Semantics

Every value of this property is a Resource List.

Status

Contains

URI: http://purl.org/vocab/resourcelist/schema#contains

A List may contain many Sections and Items organised in a hierarchical structure. the contains property provides a relationshiop between the parent List and all Sections and Items within it, whether they are attached directly or deeper within the structure. This allows a List and all of its parts to be retrieved with a single DESCRIBE. This is an optimisation that precludes the need for recursive querying.

Semantics

Having this property implies being a Resource List. Every value of this property is genid11.

Status

List

URI: http://purl.org/vocab/resourcelist/schema#list

Sections and Items are contained within Lists, the list property allows an easy way to get from Items and Sections that may be several levels deep to their parent List.

Semantics

Having this property implies being genid8. Every value of this property is a Resource List.

Status

Next

URI: http://purl.org/vocab/resourcelist/schema#next

DEPRECATED: The Sections and Items within a List or a Section are ordered. The mechanism for that is a doubly linked list, using next and previous.

Semantics

Having this property implies being genid17. Every value of this property is genid14.

Status

Previous

URI: http://purl.org/vocab/resourcelist/schema#previous

DEPRECATED: The Sections and Items within a List or a Section are ordered. The mechanism for that is a doubly linked list, using next and previous.

Semantics

Having this property implies being genid24. Every value of this property is genid21.

Status

Resource

URI: http://purl.org/vocab/resourcelist/schema#resource

The resource property relates an Item as it occurs in a List or Section to the resource it refers to. In our current view of Resource Lists the Items refer to resources all of which can be described using Bibliontology.

Semantics

Having this property implies being an Item. Every value of this property is a bibo:Document.
