Current Expression of Owner and Contributors using DC

Note that this does not support:

  • any information on when creation or contribution happened – collectively or separately 
  • any ordering or other differentiation of contribution within the group
  • any association of any creator or contributor with any collection item

Also would seem preferable to use the DC Terms ontology properties creator and contributor since they have a dcterms:Agent as the range.

Proposed Expression of Owner and Contributors using PROV-O

  prov:wasEndedBy        <http://vivo.cornell.edu/individual/individual24416> .

NOTE:

  • generated is saying this person created the virtual collection
  • endedAtTime will be the last time an item was added to or removed from the virtual collection, effectly representing a modifiedDate
    • What about if the title of the virtual collection changes?  Does endedAtTime change?
  • wasEndedBy will be the last person to add or remove an item to the virtual collection.

  1. Jon,

    In the extended Prov-O model, is there a way to associate a datetime with a contribution? It seems there's no activity in that relationship, only a role. In that case we can't track the last modified date, as we can in the VIVO model.

  2. I like this new version of the extended PROV-O model, because the modeling of the curator relationship is now parallel to that of the lead curator. They're similarly parallel in the simpler PROV-O model, but it doesn't allow for datetimes to indicate creation and last modified dates.
