This section describes more advanced ways of using the SKOS Core note properties.
The SKOS Core note properties can be used in three ways:
- Simple literal
- URL reference
Simple Literal Notes
A simple literal note as an RDF literal as the value of the note property, e.g.:
Note that RDF literals may have language tags, so you could have e.g.:
e.g. with language tag
The section [basic notes] illustrates only the simple literal style usage of the SKOS Core note properties.
A structured note takes a blank node as the value of the note property, e.g.:
This style allows you to express additional information about the note in a structured way, such as the date of a history note. As always, any RDF vocabulary such as Dublin Core may be used to describe the properties of a structured note.
URL Reference Notes
A URL reference note takes the URL of a web resource as the value of the note property, e.g.:
This style allows you to refer to definitions, examples etc. contained in published web resources.
Note that in the above example additional metadata about the note has been included in the description of the note. This is not compulsory, but is often valuable.
