Hi Antoine,

Since our telecommuting system was down, I only now got your mail, so sorry for answering late: Your sildes were just perfect.

For the folders, which are related to but not identical with the persons or companies they are about, I used self-defined clasess (P20PersonFolder and P20CompanyFolder, subClassOf p20:Folder, subClassOf ore:Aggregation - I didn't find a fitting "Folder" class in the wild). I attached the folder titles as literal values, denominating the person or company the folder is about, e.g. "Marx, Karl; 1818-1883" or "Beiersdorf AG (Hamburg)". 

Whereever possible, biograhical folders are linked to the according GND (PND) authority record using good old dcterms:subject. We hope to accomplish this for companies, too (using the GKD part of PND), but that will be a whole lot of work. For subjects and wares the proper vocab is an open issue - maybe simply DBpedia.

Since the relation folder/authority record is a pretty strong one, dcterms:subject is maybe too general. Additionally, further dcterms:subject relations to Dbpedia and VIAF are deduced from the authority record. I didn't find jet an elegant way to express the "priviledged" relation to the authority record. Maybe foaf:primaryTopic would be a better fit? I wonder if others came across the same problem.

Hope this explains the state of work a little more - questions or suggestions are, as always, very welcome.

Cheers, Joachim

Hi Joachim,

Coming back to your case, I made two slides (6-7 in the file attached). I hope I've not made any mistake or forgotten anything important.

Among the potential issues, I'm wondering: did you find proper vocabularies for every entity an item can be about (persons, companies, wares, topics)? Or are you using simple literal values for the moment?

Thanks for the help,

Antoine

PS: by the way is it ok if I copy your answer (or you do it yourself) to the list? That kind of interaction may be useful for others to be aware of.
