Topic : RDA
emma ACTION: Gordon will prepare something on RDA, FRBR etc. for discussion in Sept. agenda [recorded in http://www.w3.org/2005/Incubator/lld/minutes/2010/07/29-lld-minutes.html#action06] [DONE]
-- To be discussed: http://www.w3.org/2005/Incubator/lld/wiki/Library_standards_and_linked_data
Topic : GordonD presentation of http://www.w3.org/2005/Incubator/lld/wiki/Library_standards_and_linked_data
TomB Within IFLA, new technical group for namespaces, coordination of standards in SW framwork, etc - will report to new core activity that resurrects something abandoned a few years ago - concept of universal bibliographic control. One or two months.
GordonD no formal connection between FRBR and RDA activities
TomB ... special interest group for SW issues. Producing mappings beyond IFLA, e.g. for RDA, remains semi-formal - no formal orgn looking at mappings with RDA. Only joint membership in activities.
GordonDPublication of standards in RDF not synchronized
TomB ... Trying to convey complexity of issues - if we are to get these standards to work together effectively.
GordonD Issues section gathers
issues discussed in both groups
... Constrained versus unconstrained properties and classes is the main issue ...
GordonDno specification of constraints in RDA ...
emma pressure from non-lib community for unconstrained properties but RDA, JSC and IFLA groups are convinced that constrained versions ar necessary
emma recent IFLA meeting consider publishing unconstrained versions, linked with constrained ones.
matolat zakim michaelp.a is matolat
TomB Gordon: IFLA persuaded, JSC coming around - have indicated they will not block unconstrained properties.
kcoyle another issue has to do
with the way constraints are expressed and how they are
enforced in applications
... not sure the RDA method actually works
GordonD constraints are not
enforced on applications
... constraints are useful to check legacy data
kcoyle there is a sort a contradiction there
TomB Gordon: They are constraints on _inferences_. Powerful if you consider there may be billions of triples eventually. Records can be "filled in" using inferences.
GordonD I won't call them "unformal" constraints
Zakim michaelp, you wanted to talk about constraints
GordonD We need more technical investigation
Michaelp there is a bit of
confusion about constraints and validation
... In OWL the constraints are enabling, not restricting
... There are different of constraints like in XML schemas
GordonD Indeed a big deal of
confusion in this area
... RDA wants to be validated as a schema
... but also enabling as Michaelp has pointed
Jeff_ The same model can be used either as a schema, either as enabling depending on the use case
kcoyle we should clarify which constraints we are speaking about
GordonD There are a lot of value constraints in RDA
emma Karen : RDA primary constraints are about constraining a property to a FRBR entity, not the values
GordonD RDA should keep its own versions of FRBR constraints ...
TomB move on to next topics
... port this discussion to F2F
GordonD next topic is "Application profiles or OWL ontologies"
emma GordonD : ISBD elements have a sequence + indicate if mandatory or not, so need for application profile
GordonD What LLD can bring is clarification of when using application profiles and when using OWL
Topic: Use of published properties and classes
GordonD How can library comunity be made aware of and re-use widely used classes and properties?
Need to acknowledge overlap between libray and "open Web" classes and properties
Zakim emma, you wanted to suggest the need to encourage the use of widespread standards
emma Agreed with GordonD ...
it's very much an issue of trust ...
mzrcia FRSAD intent to use skos semantic relationships instead of repeating to define them
LLD should encourage library community not to be shy about this use
Zakim TomB, you wanted to suggest additional attention to "alignment" - mappings and "identity links" between vocabularies
emma library community not used to multiplicity of representations
jeff_ Gordon, you should add OWL to the list of DC, FOAF, SKOS at http://www.w3.org/2005/Incubator/lld/wiki/Library_standards_and_linked_data#Use_of_published_properties_and_classes
GordonD Jeff, will do
marcia: We have already actions on declaring relationships using "sameAs" or "equivalent classes"
mzrcia using SKOS secmantic relationships
mzrcia such as broader, narrower... between themas
GordonD: The library community
should not be churlish in saying "not invented here"
... Elements coming from the library models will be useful elsewhere also
mzrcia I was also into the discussion of reusing/borrowing the associative relationships between concepts/topics defined by the Getty vocabulary
GordonD How can LLD can have
action on milestones in this area?
... Library linked-data and legacy records ...
potential to generate billions of instances ...
GordonD copyright is a critical issue here ...
emma GordonD : Need from LLD community to encourage freeing the data
It's a political issue (How can libraries be encouraged to "free" their records?)
GordonD Technical infrastructure ...
emma Library system vendors will only change if customers ask for it
How are vendors to see the ROI?
Topic: Duplication and identifiers
GordonD identifying different
records for the same thing is also a big issue ..
... Library culture ...
... sociological barriers to address ...
rsinger GordonD++ #awesome
emma +1, Thanks GordonD !
mzrcia +1, Gordon!
LarsG +1 GordonD, Great!
TomB +1 great summary of the issues!
GordonD All, thanks!
TomB: a lot of congratulations to Gordon!
