Toby- A quick correction: in the previous email, by "end of the IR" I
meant to say "end of the IR's URI."

I note also that the LC's Thesaurus of Graphic Materials uses slash
URIs instead of hash URIs.

e.g.

http://id.loc.gov/vocabulary/graphicMaterials/tgm003862
http://id.loc.gov/vocabulary/graphicMaterials/tgm000013
http://id.loc.gov/vocabulary/graphicMaterials/tgm002276
http://id.loc.gov/vocabulary/graphicMaterials/tgm004048
http://id.loc.gov/vocabulary/graphicMaterials/tgm005114

I'm curious as to why the LC would use two different schemes in this regard.
