Notes from May 2013


This is same as part Dominic's manual (to best of our understanding)

Does it comply with BM's latest changes to modeling Association codes (esp re Acquisition, Production)?
BM Association Mapping v2. Dominic's document probably reflects this, but these are recent changes and I haven't checked.

If there is something else you need to get this to work with Research Space please let me know

Once it's compliant, we should:

  • try loading the data
  • load your thesauri. complete Getty or only the subset used by your objects?
  • create RForms for your objects



I am reviewing for any typos, missing types...

Have you tried Eyeball? See here: RDF Validation and Conversion#Eyeball,

Turtle files

The Pubby view on top right contains "View Collections Online Record", this will take you back to our online collection record that contain both RDF and XML from which the RDF came from.

  1. I suggest to change the "RDF" to a direct link, e.g.
  2. If possible, also add "Turtle" format, e.g.
    Pubby has this at the bottom, e.g., but only for the current node, not its subnodes

If you prefer actual RDF files happy to put them online for you.

Yes, send me Turtle (or RDF) files for the objects that you quoted.

Inverse links considered harmful

I cannot examine a URI like because pubby tries to show "is P51_current_keeper of" all objects and that takes forever.
Is there a way to switch this on/off?



  • pubby doesn’t show prefixes but "?:"
  • STRONGLY Suggest to have 1 URI per object, not 3 sameAs URIs
  • crm:PX_* (e.g. crm:PX_display_wrap) is wrong, should be bmo:PX_*


  • use more logical URIs that don't reflect their genesis in existing systems. Eg
    <thesauri/event/exhibition_history> -> <thesauri/event/exhibition> (An exhibition is NOT "exhibition history")
    <thesauri/identifier/TMS/exhibition_history> -> <thesauri/identifier/exhibition> (doesn't matter your system is called TMS)
  • Getty thesauri: don't like that you use a YCBA-specific URI for Getty, eg
    This won't let your data mesh with other data using Getty.
    Haven't the Getty decided on an official namespace?


  • This is wrong, see image_objects_carriers@crmg

    TODO Vlado: write the correct one

  • This says nothing (has no fields)
  • this is all wrong
    • so simply use this:
    • better yet, use a CreativeCommons URI, since CC is a stronger authority about rights than YCBA
