    Review of some existing efforts:
    1. U. of Maryland:
    2. Nat'l Library of Wales:  PCDM Mapping for Welsh Newspapers (NLW) 

  • -differences: UofM doesn't model articles as parts of issue in the way pages are with hasMember - use hasRelatedObject instead - this is based on vendor-generated data to NDNP spec
  • U of M is working with IIIF modelling as well - the PCDM Works Extension is relevant in bridging between PCDM and IIIF: 
  • and also
  • - discussion of status of PCDM extensions: do we want to rely on them?
  • - discussion of relation to physical artifacts, when e.g. issues are retrospectively reconstructed from aggregation layer (bound volumes or reels of microfilm)
  • - question of ordering of issues: explicit using proxies, or rely on date sort? - need to handle granularity of multiple issues on a given date
  • - Eben will post questions to PCDM group re relatedItem vs hasMember for articles and status of PCDM Extensions (e.g. the current work on FileSets in relation to the Works extension)
