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="">
    <rdfs:label xml:lang="en">Draft</rdfs:label>

 <lifecycle:State rdf:about="">
    <rdfs:label xml:lang="en">Published</rdfs:label>
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="">
     <sioc:has_creator rdf:resource=""/>
     <lifecycle:state rdf:resource=""/>
     <sioc:name xml:lang="en">Test List</sioc:name>
     <resource:description xml:lang="en">This a test list</resource:description>
