During our last meeting in Nuremberg I was asked to do some homework; here
I was asked to look at coded values that serve to categorize corporate
bodies in the INTERMARC format used by the National Library of France, in
order to see if some of them could match the FRAD "Field of Activity"
attribute for a Corporate Body, or the notion of "type of activity".
The INTERMARC format defines three distinct sets of coded values for
- "Type of Corporate Body" <
http://www.bnf.fr/documents/intermarc_ref_type-coll.pdf >, which
corresponds to just F11 Corporate Body P2 has type E55 Type;
- "Official Organization" <
http://www.bnf.fr/documents/intermarc_ref_collectivites.pdf >, which again
corresponds to P2 ; and
- "Scope of Competence" ("domaine administratif" in French) <
http://www.bnf.fr/documents/intermarc_ref_domaine-adm.pdf >, which is a
good candidate for the "field of activity" or "type of activity" notion,
as it includes codes for such terms as "scientific research", "public

a) Issue 184
Here is my suggested rephrasing for the 2nd paragraph (split into two) of
the scope note for P69 is associated with:
"Any instance of E29 Design or Procedure may be associated with other
designs or procedures. The property is assumed to be entirely recirpocal.
The P69.1 has type property of P69 is associated with allows the nature of
the association to be specified; examples of types of association between
instances of E29 Design or Procedure include: whole-part, sequence,
b) Issue 188
I was asked to write something in order to make it explicit that the
material foreseen by a design or procedure may not be the one that was
actually used by an activity that claims to have used that design or
procedure. I thought the most relevant place for this was in the scope
note for P33 used specific technique (was used by) but if you think it
necessary I can draft other wordings for properties P68 foresees use of
(use foreseen by) and P126 employed (was employed in) as well.
By the way, the 2nd paragraph of the scope note for P33 is no longer
relevant, or should be rephrased, as the domain of the property has
Suggested additional paragraph:
"Although the instance of E29 Design or Procedure referred to is specific
and documented, it may happen that an instance of E7 Activity associated
with it through property P33 does not strictly adhere to all the
instructions contained in that instance of E29 Design or Procedure, but
follows an unwritten variant of it. As a consequence, it is not possible
to regard the path from E11 Modification (subclass of E7 Activity) through
P33 used specific technique (was used by), E29 Design or Procedure, P68
foresees use of (use foreseen by) to E57 Material as semantically
equivalent to the property E11 Modification P126 employed (was employed
in) E57 Material. The specific instance of E57 Material used in the course
of an instance of E11 Modification that applied a specific technique can
be different from the instance of E57 Material stipulated by that
technique; e.g., the recipe for a cake (E29) P68 foresees use of sugar
(E57), but the actual production of a cake (E12 Production, subclass of
E11 Modification) may have used (P126) a sweetener (E57) instead of sugar,
and yet be still regarded as using the recipe."
Martin, can you send me the text you want me to translate, please?
Best wishes and a very Happy New Year to you all,
