“Authoritative” in what sense? 

 

In the BIBFRA.ME sense that all http://bibfra.me/vocab/Organizations are subclass of http://bibfra.me/vocab/Authority?


 

Note that LCNAF claims that the authoritativeLabel for my organization is “OCLC” despite the fact that our legal name is “OCLC Online Computer Library, Inc.”.

Not that strange. 

 

MADS uses Authority because that's what it is, an Authority. It's narrower than a Concept. It is used to refer to things are "authoritative":  authoritative form for a personal name, authoritative form for a  place, etc.

In the MADS ontology, they used the term “Authority” in place of “Concept”.

Strange but true.
