I suspect you might already be in FRBR hell with your use of dcterms:hasPart (at least in the case of linking to the PDF)... you just don't know it yet! :-)

In response to the original question about linking to the PDF file, I would have thought that dcterms:hasVersion would do the job?

But that's me making a reasonable guess and getting on with it.

The EPrints document is a URI which represents a conceptual document which consists of a number of actual files, eg. HTML+JPG+CSS, so the dct:hasPart makes sense there. The main issue is how to relate the document to the metadata record, and you rapidly decend into FRBR hell.

Until a few people have consumed my data I consider it very much a work in progress!

I see that Chris Gutteridge uses dc:hasPart for the ePrints RDF (eprints.org).

Eg:



<http://eprints.ecs.soton.ac.uk/21681/><http://eprints.ecs.soton.ac.uk/21681/>

        dc:format "text/html";

        dc:title "HTML Summary of #21681 Consuming multiple linked data sources: Challenges and Experiences";

I would like to incorporate a link between bibliographic reference description and a URL to the location of a PDF of that document.



I had minted a predicate txn:hasPDFVersion, as demonstrated in this RDF snippet. (Part of http://lod.taxonconcept.org/ses/v6n7p.rdf )

Some have suggested using rdfs:seeAlso to link to what could be a multimegabyte PDF, but I think this would cause problems for a number of RDF crawlers like Elmo.



In summary, I think it would be useful to have a predicate that can be used for linking specifically to a PDF document.



Is there an existing predicate for this?



What do people think about the suggestion to use rdfs:seeAlso to link to a PDF?



I would also like to know of others thoughts or suggestions regarding this issue,



Respectfully,



- Pete
