[Crm-sig] *** ISSUE *** Revision of scope note for E73 Information Object to specifically include named graphs

Dear CRM-SIG

I would like to suggest the following revision to the scope note for E73
Information Object. Its intention is to specifically mention “named graphs”
as being instances of E73 Information Object. As we look at implementation
of the CRM it is becoming increasingly obvious that “named graphs” are going
to be a particularly useful tool, it would therefore seem handy if we
explicitly mentioned that they live in E73!

Best regards

SdS

 

 

Current Scope Note


E73 Information Object


Subclass of:        E89 <>  Propositional Object

E90 <>  Symbolic Object

Superclass of:    E29 <>  Design or Procedure

E31 <>  Document

E33 <>  Linguistic Object

E36 <>  Visual Item

 

Scope note:        This class comprises identifiable immaterial items, such
as a poems, jokes, data sets, images, texts, multimedia objects, procedural
prescriptions, computer program code, algorithm or mathematical formulae,
that have an objectively recognizable structure and are documented as single
units. 

 

An E73 Information Object does not depend on a specific physical carrier,
which can include human memory, and it can exist on one or more carriers
simultaneously.

Instances of E73 Information Object of a linguistic nature should be
declared as instances of the E33 Linguistic Object subclass. Instances of
E73 Information Object of a documentary nature should be declared as
instances of the E31 Document subclass. Conceptual items such as types and
classes are not instances of E73 Information Object, nor are ideas without a
reproducible expression. 

Examples:

prescriptions, computer program code, algorithm or mathematical formulae,
that have an objectively recognizable structure and are documented as single

class, so that each “named graph” is an instance of an E73 Information
Object.
