Dear all,

With excellent help from Gregg Kellogg and Hugh Barnes on the public-rdfa

mailing list, DCMI should be in a position one week from now to publish DCMI

Metadata Terms in RDFa. The code and source data for this work is available on

GitHub [2].

The RDFa document is being generated with ID= references in the HTML. Already

today, clicking on [3] will take you to the spot in the Web page that describes

dcterms:title, while clicking on [4] will take you to dc:title.

Next week, we could simply redirect the PURLs to the "latest version URI" of

DCMI Metadata Terms -- now containing RDFa -- which would, in turn, redirect to

the URI of the latest snapshot. However, it would be nicer if we could

redirect the PURLs directly to the ID= references.

Currently, if you dereference the URI for Title [7], it redirects to the RDF

schema URI plus "#title" [8] -- which, perhaps unfortunately, does not resolve

to anything in the RDF schema. If we edit the PURLs to point to the latest

version of /documents/dcmi-terms/, the PURL server will presumably return the

URI of the latest version, plus "#title" [9].

I suppose it might be possible to batch-upload PURL mappings for each the URIs

of the 126 terms in the DCMI vocabularies (see list below), but that seems like

a rather cumbersome way to solve the problem, as new mappings would need to be

entered for each new DCMI term. I haven't checked the PURL server documentation

to see if this would be possible.

It might be better if the mappings could be maintained in the DCMI server,

perhaps as Apache rewrites, but I do not see any way to get around the problem

of disambiguating [9] to either [3] or [4].

There are only fifteen URIs that share a common ending -- the fifteen

properties of the Dublin Core Metadata Element Set. One "85%" solution would

be to change the ID= references to be identical to the ending of the

corresponding PURL. In other words, "s/classes-Agent/Agent/". However, that

would mean that the PURL resolution would not work correctly either for

dcterms:title or for dc:title. Is a 85% solution perhaps close enough?

Your comments and suggestions would be much appreciated, along with any advice

about what we would need to consider in serving up the RDFa page.

Many thanks,

Tom

Hi Tom,

What prevents you from redirecting

http://purl.org/dc/terms/XXX

to

http://dublincore.org/documents/dcmi-terms/#terms-XXX

and

http://purl.org/dc/elements/1.1/XXX

to

http://dublincore.org/documents/dcmi-terms/#elements-XXX

?

It seems to me that a 303 redirect would be more appropriate than the current 302 in this case. The redirect origin identifies a property, the redirect target identifies a section of a document describing the resource. So it's (part of) a related document.

But besides this small httpRange-14 nitpick, isn't it just a matter of setting up these redirect rules?

Best,

Richard

serving up documentation about term URIs, but I'm seeing:

Are there other examples demonstrating RDFa + 303 redirect, or would

DCMI be breaking new ground? If the latter, then I would want to put a

concise but complete explanation into place explaining our rationale.

As I understand it, one potential downside of using RDFa _only_ for

serving the RDF vocabulary (i.e., without supporting content negotiation

for RDF/XML and possibly Turtle) is that some RDF data consumers will

not have up-to-date tools for consuming the RDFa. Are there any other

potential negatives?

I'm wondering if best practice would be to implement content negotiation

_in addition_to_ RDFa? In that case, we could derive the RDF/XML (or

should it be Turtle?) from the RDFa, but we would need to configure

.htaccess with conditional redirects.
