Introduction

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.

Changes From Previous Version

Namespace

The URI for this vocabulary is

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

When used in XML documents 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#list
http://purl.org/vocab/resourcelist/schema#List

The term name for a class always starts with an uppercase character. Where the term name is comprised of multiple concatenated words, the leading character of each word will be an uppercase character. For example:

List
Section

The term name for a property always starts with an lowercase character. Where the term name is comprised of multiple concatenated words, the leading character of the second and each subsequent word will be an uppercase character. For example:

list
contains

Summary of Terms

This vocabulary defines 4 classes and 11 properties .

Term NameTypeDefinition
AlternativeItemclassAn 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.
ItemclassAn 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.
ListclassA 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.
SectionclassA Section denotes a grouping of resources within a Resource List that are considered related in some way.
alternativepropertyThe alternative property is used to relate one item to another as an alternative.
containspropertyA 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.
createdpropertyThis property is used to capture the date a list, item, or section was created
descriptionpropertyThis property is used to provide a description of a Resource List.
lastUpdatedpropertyThis property is used to capture the date a list, item, or section last updated
listpropertySections 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.
nextpropertyDEPRECATED: 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.
previouspropertyDEPRECATED: 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.
resourcepropertyThe 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.
usedBypropertyThe usedBy property relates a List to the those rdf:resources that refer to it.
usesListpropertyThe usesList property is used to relate any rdf:resource to a Resource List it makes use of.

Usage Note

The Resource List ontology is designed to model academic reading lists, bookmarks and similarly structured collections of references. The Resource List Ontology makes use of a number of other ontologies:

We use SIOC to model the structure of a Resource List and the relationships between items and their containers. We use Bibliographic Ontology to model the various kinds of resources that can be included on a list. It is recommended that you refer to those ontologies to gain a better understanding of the classes and properties that are available.

Lifecycle Ontology

We are currently using the lifecycle ontology to model the status of a List, Section or Item, with a view to introduce the ability to model more detailed workflow type activities in the future. At the moment it is used to indicate whether a List, a Section or an Item are draft, or published. In order to do this we have defined the following Individuals as part of the Resource List Ontology

 <lifecycle:State rdf:about="http://purl.org/vocab/resourcelist/schema#status-draft">
    <rdfs:label xml:lang="en">Draft</rdfs:label>
 </lifecycle:State>

 <lifecycle:State rdf:about="http://purl.org/vocab/resourcelist/schema#status-published">
    <rdfs:label xml:lang="en">Published</rdfs:label>
 </lifecycle:State>
And specify that the <lifecycle:state> property be used when indicating the status of an item, section or a list. For example:
 <resource:List rdf:about="http://example.com/lists/test">
     <resource:created>20080520110000</resource:created>
     <sioc:has_creator rdf:resource="http://example.com/people/joe_bloggs"/>
     <lifecycle:state rdf:resource="http://purl.org/vocab/resourcelist/schema#status-draft"/>
     <sioc:name xml:lang="en">Test List</sioc:name>
     <resource:description xml:lang="en">This a test list</resource:description>
 </resource:List>

Vocabulary Classes

Class: 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.

Class: 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.

      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.

      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.

      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.
