Here be dragons :)

It would be better to use an isbn urn, however there is no accepted best
practice. Both

<dc:identifier>urn:isbn:0517219018</dc:identifier>

And

<dc:identifier rdf:resource="urn:isbn:0517219018" />

Are feasible. In recent work I've done I've chosen the former as a
pragmatic choice. Alternatively you could even do

<rdf:Description rdf:about="urn:isbn:0517219018">

For the whole description. Although that means that it's a description
of a specific edition of the work rather than the work itself. Also
ISBNs are supposed to be globally unique, but they're not since
publishers have been known to reuse them...
