common Endeavor p

IRI https://dcmi.github.io/openwemi/ns#commonEndeavor
Is Defined By OpenWEMI vocabulary
Definition

Relates any two resources that are or contain the same endeavor.

Description

commonEndeavour is intended to define a relationship between two resources that may or may not be modeled as . This makes it possible to assert that a resource modeled using a vocabulary that does not use the entity model explicitly is describing the same Work, Expression, Manifestation, and/or Item as another resource.

common Work p

IRI https://dcmi.github.io/openwemi/ns#commonWork
Is Defined By OpenWEMI vocabulary
Definition

Relates any two resources that are or contain the same Work.

Description

commonWork is intended to define a relationship between two resources that may or may not be modeled as OpenWEMI. This makes it possible to assert that a resource modeled using a vocabulary that does not use the OpenWEMI entity model explicitly is describing the same Work as another resource.

common Expression p

IRI https://dcmi.github.io/openwemi/ns#commonExpression
Is Defined By OpenWEMI vocabulary
Definition

Relates any two resources that are or contain the same Expression.

Description

commonExpression is intended to define a relationship between two resources that may or may not be modeled as OpenWEMI. This makes it possible to assert that a resource modeled using a vocabulary that does not use the OpenWEMI entity model explicitly is describing the Expression as another resource.

common Manifestation p

IRI https://dcmi.github.io/openwemi/ns#commonManifestation
Is Defined By OpenWEMI vocabulary
Definition

Relates any two resources that are or contain the same Manifestation.

Description

commonManifestation is intended to define a relationship between two resources that may or may not be modeled as OpenWEMI. This makes it possible to assert that a resource modeled using a vocabulary that does not use the OpenWEMI entity model explicitly is describing the same Manifestation as another resource.

common Item p

IRI https://dcmi.github.io/openwemi/ns#commonItem
Is Defined By OpenWEMI vocabulary
Definition

Relates any two resources that are or contain the same Item.

Description

commonItem is intended to define a relationship between two resources that may or may not be modeled as OpenWEMI. This makes it possible to assert that a resource modeled using a vocabulary that does not use the OpenWEMI entity model explicitly is describing the same Item as another resource.
