I just want to be sure that this use case can be simply yet correctly marked up using the elements of the Periodical proposal.

Note that this example does not surface types "PublicationVolume" and "PublicationIssue" since I assume that volumeNumber and issueNumber are sufficiently distinctive.

Hi Karen, I get the following Turtle for your example:

@prefix md: <http://www.w3.org/ns/md#> .
@prefix rdf: <http://www.w3.org/1999/02/22-rdf-syntax-ns#> .
@prefix rdfa: <http://www.w3.org/ns/rdfa#> .
@prefix schema: <http://schema.org/> .
@prefix xsd: <http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#> .

<> md:item ([
       a schema:ScholarlyArticle;
       schema:author "Carlyle, Allyson.";
       schema:datePublished "October 2006";
       schema:issueNumber "4";
       schema:name "Understanding FRBR as a Conceptual Model: FRBR and the Bibliographic Universe";
       schema:volumeNumber "50"
     ] [
       a schema:Periodical;
       schema:name "Library Resources and Technical Services"
     ]);
   rdfa:usesVocabulary schema: .

Note that the article and the periodical are not related to each other. You're probably missing an @itemprop on the div introducing the new @itemtype. Perhaps schema:publisher?
