I have been using FRBRoo as a base model for a vocabulary about ancient
manuscripts, in a project called Sharing Ancient Wisdoms (SAWS) .
For this I am in the process of mapping our SAWS ontology to FRBRoo,
using the RDFS encoding of v1.0.1 of the FRBRoo model . To some
extent this is working well. However:
- I see that a v1.0.2 of FRBRoo was published at  as a doc and a pdf
in January 2010, but I can find no RDFS encoding of the newer version.
Are there plans to release an RDFS encoding of v1.0.2 (or has this
already been done and I am just looking in the wrong places?) If needed,
I would be happy to volunteer my help in this, although I am very much a
novice in the FRBRoo world.
- The current RDFS model of FRBRoo v1.0.1 is harmonised with CIDOC CRM
v5.0.2. It is available in two forms: using IDs based on initial codes
only (e.g. F2, R2F) , and using initial codes followed by english
names, e.g. F2.Expression . I would prefer to use the  version
with English names (my memory of codes is poor).
However although the  version refers to the current version of CIDOC
(e.g. http://www.cidoc-crm.org/rdfs/cidoc-crm#E89), which I prefer, the
 version is hard-coded to refer to CIDOC v5.0.2 only (e.g.
- is there a reason for this difference?
- if a FRBR v1.0.2 RDFS schema is planned, how will it refer to
Thanks in advance for any comments you may have here, your help is
PS I would like to post on these lists when the SAWS ontology is fully
mapped to FRBRoo and published, to consult list members' opinions and
expertise on this mapping work?
