Abstract

This ontology defines some concepts used by the GBV library network.

Table of Contents

Object Properties

Object properties link resources to other resources.

gbv:srubase

http://purl.org/ontology/gbv/srubase   rdf+xml   n3

SRU interface of a database

Define by: http://purl.org/ontology/gbv/

↦ Domain: void:Dataset (Having this property implies being a Dataset)

gbv:oaibase

http://purl.org/ontology/gbv/oaibase   rdf+xml   n3

OAI-PMH base URL of a database

Define by: http://purl.org/ontology/gbv/

↦ Domain: void:Dataset (Having this property implies being a Dataset)

gbv:picabase

http://purl.org/ontology/gbv/picabase   rdf+xml   n3

PICA base URL of a database

Define by: http://purl.org/ontology/gbv/

↦ Domain: void:Dataset (Having this property implies being a Dataset)

gbv:opac

http://purl.org/ontology/gbv/opac   rdf+xml   n3

main catalog of an institution

Define by: http://purl.org/ontology/gbv/

↦ Domain: daia:Institution (Having this property implies being an Institution)

⇥ Range: void:Dataset (Every value of this property is a Dataset)

Notes: the main catalog of a library usually contains records about its holdings, but the main catalog could also contain records that are not held by the institution.

gbv:solrbase

http://purl.org/ontology/gbv/solrbase   rdf+xml   n3

Solr base URL of a database

Define by: http://purl.org/ontology/gbv/

↦ Domain: void:Dataset (Having this property implies being a Dataset)

Data Properties

Data properties link resources to literal values.

gbv:dbkey

http://purl.org/ontology/gbv/dbkey   rdf+xml   n3

database key, used as prefix in unAPI and at other APIs within the GBV

Define by: http://purl.org/ontology/gbv/

⊆ Super-property: terms:identifier (Having this property implies having an identifier)

Notes: must comply to the regular expression ^[a-z][a-z0-9-]*[a-z0-9]$

gbv:eln

http://purl.org/ontology/gbv/eln   rdf+xml   n3

external library number (ELN) as library identifier within the GBV

Define by: http://purl.org/ontology/gbv/

⊆ Super-property: terms:identifier (Having this property implies having an identifier)

gbv:gvkppn

http://purl.org/ontology/gbv/gvkppn   rdf+xml   n3

PPN identifier within the GBV union catalog (GVK)

Define by: http://purl.org/ontology/gbv/

⊆ Super-property: terms:identifier (Having this property implies having an identifier)

Notes: a PPN in general identifies a record in any PICA database. This property must only be used to identity records in GVK.

gbv:iln

http://purl.org/ontology/gbv/iln   rdf+xml   n3

internal library number (ILN) as library identifier within the GBV

Define by: http://purl.org/ontology/gbv/

⊆ Super-property: terms:identifier (Having this property implies having an identifier)

Datatypes

A RDF datatype defines a set of Unicode strings which literal values of this datatype can take (literal space), and a mapping from this set to the set of possible meanings (value space). The datatype of a literal value must explicitely be expressed. This ontology includes the following datatypes.

gbv:ppn

http://purl.org/ontology/gbv/ppn   rdf+xml   n3

A PPN in general identifies a record in a PICA database, but it does not indicate which database it comes from.
