Hello again, further to my last post
<http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-esw-thes/2010Jan/0000.html>  and
the advice received from Antoine (thanks Antoine!), I have set about
creating some very simple extensions to SKOS that I can hopefully just 'plug
in' and use to provide a little extra. 

 

I have written a few extensions that make sense to me and look ok from my
perspective but I am very new to this and so was wondering whether anyone
thought that they were either incorrect or even just pointless.

 

Any feedback would really be greatly appreciated - I have included my schema
below.

 

Thanks,

Drew
