About this vocabulary

This vocabulary is part of a shared project between the Leipzig University Library (UB) and the Saxon State and University Library Dresden (SLUB) supported by the european union with EFRE. The goal is to provide a Electronic Resource Management System for the UB based on linked data technologies using RDF.

Further information can be found on our procect site

Reusing vocabularies/ontologies

On the one hand reusing classes and properties provided by other ontolgies is quite easy and rdf, rdfs, owl or foaf are well known examples. On the other hand it's more difficult to provide information to others about cases like in which of your classes yout want to use which properties of other ontologies. So this document is a human readable version of those resources we reuse in our vocabulary to model the business processes we need.

In RDF we try to make use of rdfs:subClassOf or owl:subClassOf in case of adding further statements like 'owl:Restrictions' on properties to a class. (Note that we will add all restrictions on properties even if their usagage is optional, with help of owl:minCardinality "0". In contrast to open world assumption this is a closed world even if we know one can add triples she wants)
