Hi all,

I am wondering how best to mark up a creative work that is an aggregation with links to sub-parts, for example the table of contents for an online book with links to the chapters.

<article itemtype="http://schema.org/Book" itemscope>
<h1 itemprop="name">My book!</h1>
<ol>
<li><a href="./chapter1.html">Chapter One</a></li>
...
</ol>
</article>

I want to be able to say that the chapter is "partOf" the book or that the book "aggregates" the chapters. I wondered about using Itemlist but I could not work out how to code it.

 It might also be possible to use the OAI ORE terms, eg http://www.openarchives.org/ore/terms/Aggregation (leaving aside the distinction between resource maps and aggregations which is a bit complicated for Schema.org). 


<article itemtype="http://schema.org/Book" itemscope>
<h1 itemprop="name">My book!</h1>
<ol >
<li itemtype="http://schema.org/MediaObject" itemprop="associatedMedia" itemscope><span itemprop="name"><a href="./chapter1.html" itemprop="http://www.openarchives.org/ore/terms/aggregates">Chapter One</a></span></li>
...
</ol>
</article>

This give the following JSON: 

{
  "items": [
    {
      "type": "http://schema.org/Book",
      "properties": {
        "name": [
          "My book!"
        ],
        "associatedMedia": [
          {
            "type": "http://schema.org/MediaObject",
            "properties": {
              "name": [
                "Chapter One"
              ],
              "http://www.openarchives.org/ore/terms/aggregates": [
                "http://example.com/chapter1.html"
              ]
            }
          }
        ]
      }
    }
  ]
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Peter
