Abstract

RiC-O (Records in Contexts-Ontology) is an OWL ontology for describing archival record resources. As the second part of Records in Contexts standard, it is a formal representation of Records in Contexts Conceptual Model (RiC-CM).

This version, which is v0.1, is the current official release; it is compliant with RiC-CM v0.2 preview , that was published on 2019, December 12.

RiC-O provides a generic vocabulary and formal rules for creating RDF datasets (or generating them from existing archival metadata) that describe in a consistent way any kind of archival record resource. It can support publishing RDF datasets as Linked Data, querying them using SPARQL, and making inferences using the logic of the ontology.

History note

A first beta version of RiC-O was developed in 2017 and used by the National Archives of France for building a proof of concept (http://piaaf.demo.logilab.fr).

EGAD then continued to develop the ontology, and this process entered a very active period in 2019, while RiC-CM v0.2 was being designed and edited. From December 2018 to November 2019, about 65 persons that had applied to a call for reviewers, received successive beta versions of RiC-O and sent a few first comments. While EGAD RiC-O team could not answer to each of these comments, each was taken into account. In particular, it was decided to prepare and publish, along with RiC-O v0.1, a preview of RiC-CM v0.2. The goal of the preview release of RiC-CM v0.2 is to provide context for the classes, properties, and overall logic of RiC-O in support of the ontology’s first public release.

This version is a draft, and was released with a public call for comments.

The Git repository that is used for handling RiC-O will soon be made public, so that making pull requests will be possible.

Introduction

RiC-O (Records in Contexts-Ontology) is an OWL ontology for describing archival record resources. As the second part of Records in Contexts standard, it is a formal representation of Records in Contexts Conceptual Model (RiC-CM). This version, which is v0.1, is the current official release, it is compliant with RiC-CM v0.2 preview, that was published on 2019, December 12.

RiC-O design principles

The following design principles were followed when developing RiC-O.

RiC-O is a domain or reference ontology. It provides a generic vocabulary and formal rules for creating RDF datasets (or generating them from existing archival metadata) that describe in a consistent way any kind of archival record resource. It can support publishing RDF datasets as Linked Data, querying them using SPARQL, and making inferences using the logic of the ontology.

While some projects have built some specific ontologies for describing archives, at this time no generic, domain, ontology exists that addresses this need. This is why EGAD decided to develop RiC-O as the second part of RiC standard.

Apart this first, main target, RiC-O also can help archival institutions and engineers to design and develop other technical implementations of RiC-CM that represent record resources and their layers of contexts as oriented, interconnected graphs. Of course, other technical implementations may be developed later on, including XML models, or (hopefully) new versions of EAD and EAC-CPF XML models.

As RiC-O is a generic, domain ontology, it does not address by itself every specific need or expectation that may occur in every archival institution or project. It is rather a high level framework, from which a project can either select some components, or create subcomponents, or both simultaneously.

As a domain ontology, RiC-O, at this stage at least, does not borrow any component from other existing ontologies (such as the cultural heritage models – IFLA-LRM and CIDOC-CRM, PREMIS, or PROV-O). It should therefore be easier, for an archival institution or archival project, to understand, implement and maintain RiC-O within its system.

RiC-O will rather, later on, be aligned with these models. This is of course essential for interconnecting RDF datasets conforming to RiC-O with other datasets, or for using parts of RiC-O in other contexts than an archival or record management context.

RiC-O must be immediately usable.

This is a key feature for a new model. In particular, it is very important that existing archival metadata, that are created or generated in current information systems, can be converted to RDF conforming to RiC-O, without losing any data, structural or partially implicit information. What is at stake here is that metadata conforming to the previous existing ICA standards can be processed successfully.

During the ongoing development process, a lot of successful testing has been made, using XML/EAD finding aids and XML/EAC-CPF authority records, that have been converted to RDF datasets, either by hand or using scripts. A conversion software is being developed and will soon be available.

While some existing metadata sets may have a very fine level of granularity and accuracy, already using, for example, controlled vocabularies, or describing curation events separately, often these metadata don’t have the very precise structure that RiC-CM recommends. Even then, such a conversion process should remain possible. In order to allow this, RiC-O sometimes provides several methods for representing information (as described below). From this point of view, the current official version of RiC-O may be considered a transitional ontology, in which some components may be deprecated later on.

The usability of a model also depends on its documentation. That’s why the current official release has been fully documented (this documentation will be continously improved).

RiC-O will also soon be acompanied with examples (RDF datasets). Some tutorials should also be written, and EGAD will organize practical workshops.

RiC-O has to provide a flexible framework.

This is a very important principle too. It is related with the usability principle quoted above. Moreover, archival description is flexible by essence. It is quite commonly noted that the level of granularity of information varies from one finding aid to another (or from one authority record to another), or even within the same finding aid. Some series or agents are described summarily because little is known about them and there is little time for extensive research, while other series, even records, or agents are described in detail; some relations (e.g. that relating to provenance) may be described without any detail while others may be thoroughly documented, as ISAAR(CPF) and EAC-CPF allow it.

Being generally flexible, for an OWL ontology, depends first on the polyhierarchical systems of classes and properties it provides. A superproperty or superclass, more general or generic than its subproperties or subclasses, must exist and be available for handling information, while at the same time more accurate subcomponents must be there for handling more accurate description. Also, RiC-O should provide several methods for expressing whether relations are well attested and certain or are more vague as well as direct and short paths between entities alongside more complex ones.

RiC-O must be useful.

This may be considered obvious. This means that Linked Data tools and interfaces should enable end users to go through RDF/RiC-O graphs, to query them using SPARQL in an efficient way, hopefully asking new questions and reveal information. As an example, an end user should be able to ask « What are (according to your dataset) the corporate bodies that succeeded to this given entity from its end of existence, by 1840, to nowadays (as concerns this given activity) ?» or « tell me what instantiations of this photograph exist? » « what are the existing copies of this original charter?», and get a list of these entities. In other words, institutions or projects that will have made efforts to implement RiC-O must get interesting outcomes. It should be even more interesting if you can infer new assertions from the RDF datasets you built, and of course link your datasets to other ones.

RiC-O should be extensible.

It should be easy to adapt the ontology by adding new subclasses or subproperties. It must also be linkable or even partially reusable in other contexts than purely archival ones. This implies that hierarchies of classes and properties are defined and that mappings are developed with other ontologies as mentioned above. It may also imply that RiC-O should provide “hooks” enabling connexions with, for example, existing SKOS vocabularies.

Understanding RiC-O: a quick overview of some features

From RiC-CM to RiC-O

In the system of classes of RiC-O, for each RiC-CM entity, you can find a corresponding class. These classes are organized according to the same hierarchy as in RiC-CM. In some projects, you may need very few of them (e.g. Agent, Record Resource and Activity only), while in other ones, you may need more (e.g. Corporate Body and Person ; Record ; Place ; Provenance Relation).

Other classes exist in RiC-O. These additional classes address various needs:

  • some correspond to RiC-CM attributes, when it may be considered necessary to handle them as full entities. This is the case for Type and its subclasses, that correspond to RiC-CM attributes that have a controlled value, and that can help to articulate RiC-O with external RDF resources like SKOS vocabularies; and also for Language, Name and Identifier, that can be considered as full entities and as key linking nodes in a RDF graph. All these classes have been grouped under a Concept class.
  • some classes have been added in order to provide a more accurate definition and model for some entities. Place thus comes along with a Physical Location class, and with a Coordinates class. A Place is considered a both geographical and historical entity. As a historical entity, among other features, it has a history, and may be preceded or succeeded by other Places. A Place also may have zero to many Physical Location through time (for instance, its boundaries, if it is an administrative area or a country, may change). Each Physical Location may be connected to zero to many Coordinates. This model is quite close to the Linked Places Format (https://github.com/LinkedPasts/linked-places). Another example of such an addition is the Proxy class, that represents (stands for) a Record Resource as it exists in a specific Record Set.
  • finally, a system of classes corresponds to the Relations section in RiC-CM.
    While these relations also are represented as simple, binary object properties (e.g. ‘hasProvenance’ that corresponds to RiC-R026 relation), you may need to assign attributes to relations, e.g. date, certainty, description…, just like one can already do so in an XML/EAC-CPF file. Though RDF* (RDF 2.0), if and when it is released, should provide a far simpler method (allowing to consider a triple as the subject or object of another triple; see http://blog.liu.se/olafhartig/2019/01/10/position-statement-rdf-star-and-sparql-star/), the only available method for representing such a documented relation in RDF for now is to use a class. Thus, for example, an AgentOriginationRelation class exists. This class may connect one to many Agents to one to many created or accumulated Record Resources or Instantiations, and has some specific object properties (certainty, date, description, source). Back to the ‘hasProvenance’ object property, let us add that it is formally defined, using OWL property chain axiom (see https://www.w3.org/TR/owl2-new-features/, as a ‘shortcut’ for the longer path ‘recordResourceOrInstantiationIsSourceOfAgentOriginationRelation/agentOriginationRelationHasTarget’, where the intermediate node is an instance of Agent Origination Relation:
    <owl:propertyChainAxiom rdf:parseType="Collection">
    <rdf:Description rdf:about="https://www.ica.org/standards/RiC/ontology#recordResourceOrInstantiationIsSourceOfAgentOriginationRelation"/>
    <rdf:Description rdf:about="https://www.ica.org/standards/RiC/ontology#agentOriginationRelationHasTarget"/>
    </owl:propertyChainAxiom>

    A triplestore, with the appropriate configuration, may thus infer the direct ‘hasProvenance’ from this long path.

Most of the datatype properties in RiC-O correspond to a RiC-CM attribute that has ‘free text’ as a schema value. See for example rico:descriptiveNote, rico:history and rico:scopeAndContent.

In addition to these datatype properties, as already said, Name and Identifier RiC-CM attributes also have their corresponding classes (subclasses of rico:Appellation). For users who would like, for instance, to consider Names as full entities (like librarians do) and thus, among other reasons, be able to align their names to name authorities, the Name class is important; while many users will simply use the name datatype property at least for a while.

The Location RiC-CM attribute also has a rico:Physical Location corresponding class (for users who want to use Place, Physical Location and Coordinates for handling places).

As already said too, every RiC-CM attribute that has ‘controlled value’ or ‘rule-based’ as a schema value, has a class as corresponding component in RiC-O. For these CM attributes that correspond to a RiC-O class, as it is necessary to provide an immediately usable ontology, two supplementary datatype properties exist that allow not to use the classes, at least for a while, if you want to implement RiC-O and create RiC-O/RDF datasets from existing archival metadata without being able to handle URIs for the information you have.

For example, you may not be able to handle and maintain URis for some controlled values you use in EAD finding aids for carrier types: maybe your information system does not use a vocabulary for this, and you cannot for a while consider these carrier types as full entities. Nevertheless you want to produce RiC-O datasets where every piece of information is kept, and you want to avoid blank nodes. If RiC-O would only provide the Carrier Type class, it would be an issue for you. So RiC-O provides a rico:type datatype property, with range rdfs:literal, which allows you to move forward.

Therefore, for the RiC-CM *Type attributes, you thus also have rico:type datatype property). For RiC-CM Coordinates attribute, you also have rico:geographicalCoordinates datatype property.

These datatype properties have a skos:scopeNote which says (for example) "Provided for usability reasons. May be made deprecated or removed later on. Use only if you don't use Physical Location and Coordinates classes with Place."

The same key design principle (RiC-O must be immediately usable) lead us to define some datatype properties that would enable users to use RiC-O even if they do not want to consider dates and rules as full entities. Thus, there of course is Date and Rule classes in RiC-O (since there are Date and Rule entities in RiC-CM). And you also have 'date' datatype properties; plus a rico:ruleFollowed datatype property. The same analysis lead us to keep the rico:history datatype property in RiC-O (same as RiC-CM history attribute), while RiC-CM and RiC-O also provide the Event class, and using a series of Events may of course be a better method, easier to query, link and display, than simply using a history prose discourse. The two methods may often in the end be used in the same dataset by an institution that, for example, would decide to emphasize only the accession, appraisal and description events among the whole history of Record resources.

These data properties have the same kind of skos:scopeNote as above.

Finally, we have introduced a few data properties that do not correspond to any RiC-CM attribute.

Some are superproperties, and thus group datatype properties (rico:physicalOrLogicalExtent, with rico:carrierExtent and rico:instantiationExtent as subproperties ; rico:textualValue, with rico:expressedDate and rico:normalizedValue as subproperties; rico:measure (and its subproperties); rico:referenceSystem, superproperty of rico:dateStandard (and of other datatype properties that do not exist in RiC-CM.)

Some are simply more specific properties : rico:accrualStatus ; rico:recordResourceStructure and rico:instantiationStructure, subproperties of rico:structure ; rico:title (subproperty of rico:name) ; rico:altitude, rico:latitude, rico:longitude (subproperties of rico:measure), rico:geodesicSystem and rico:altimetricSystem (subproperties of rico:referenceSystem).

In order to connect all the classes created, a significant number of object properties have been defined. While their 'flat' list is a long one, they are grouped hierarchically, so that one can use the upper to intermediate level ones for simplicity sake, or choose the most accurate and expressive ones, or extend the system adding a subproperty easily. It is expected that, in most use cases, a subset of these properties only will be needed. As already said above, some of the object properties are also formally defined as shortcuts.

Finally, let us mention that we added to RiC-O six individuals, considering that they would address current and frequent needs:

  • Two (FindingAid and AuthorityRecord) are both instances of the Documentary Form Type class, and of skos:Concept. They can be used for categorizing Records, finding aids and authority records being considered as Records. A Record that would have ‘Finding Aid’ as a Documentary Form Type, can be connected to one to many Record Resources using 'rico:describes’ object property.
  • Four (Fonds, Series, File, and Collection) are both instances of the Record Set Type class, and of skos:Concept. Their definition is taken from the ISAD(G) glossary. They can be used for categorizing Record Sets.

In the future, we can imagine that many other categories of the kind will be defined by the archival community, forming at least rich SKOS (hopefully multilingual) vocabularies. Considering the concepts thus defined as being also instances of some RiC-O classes may be of great interest for producing a richer description (for example, an instance of the Documentary Form Type class may have a history and some temporal relations to other documentary form types).

RiC-O documentation and annotation properties

Each class or property has an English label (rdfs:label) and description (rdfs:comment). Some have a skos:scopeNote.

When a RiC-O class or property corresponds in a way to a RiC-CM component, its description and scope note are, either the same as, or derived from, their definition and scope note in RiC-CM.

We have created two annotation properties, subproperties of rdfs:comment, for handling:

  • Information about the corresponding RiC-CM component when appliable (rico:RiCCMCorrespondingComponent). Various phrasings are used in this property depending on the rule applied for defining the RiC-CM component.
  • Information, most often in prose text for now, about possible mappings with other models or ontologies (rico:closeTo, rarely used in this 0.1 version)).

Definition (rdfs:comment)
The doing of something for some human purpose.
Scope note (skos:scopeNote)
Activity is a kind of Event. Activity is specifically used to designate purposeful human activity. Activity may be understood from two perspectives. First it can be understood as leading to an end. The end is the purpose of the Activity, or why the Activity is performed. Second, it can be understood in terms of the processes that lead to achieving the end, how the end is realized through coordinated actions. Purpose and process are complementary understandings of Activity. Together the two perspectives address why the Activity is performed, the expected ends or outcomes; and how the Activity fulfills the purpose. While activity has an intended end, there are also unintended consequences, results not intended, or side-effects. By and large, these may not be the focus of the description, but they are, unquestionably, context. In a corporate or government context an Activity may also be called a function. An Activity exists in a specific social and cultural context, and within that context is subject to change over time. An Activity may be composed of other Activities.

Label (rdfs:label):
Agent
Definition (rdfs:comment)
A Person, or Group, or an entity created by a Person or Group (Delegate Agent), or a Position, that acts in the world.
Scope note (skos:scopeNote)
An Agent may have one or more identities; an identity is a constellation of properties or relations that together “identify” the Agent. A Person or Group commonly has one identity, though each also may have one or more alternative identities. Such alternative identities may be shared by more than one Person or Group. Alternative identities include but are not limited to pseudonyms, heteronyms, DBA (Doing Business As), and trade identities. An alternative identity should not be confused with a Position in a Group, for example, presidents, prime ministers, governors, popes, royalty, or bishops. Nor should an alternative identity be confused with a variant name or identifier of the same identity. Agent also includes entities created by a Person or Group that act on behalf of the creating Agent in an autonomous or semi-autonomous manner. Examples of such Mechanisms are software agents, robots, and space and underwater probes that generate data (records) in the course of Activity assigned to and in conformance with the instructions given to them by the creating Person or Group.

Event
Definition (rdfs:comment)
Something that happens in time and space.
Scope note (skos:scopeNote)
An event may be natural, human, or a combination of natural and human. Events have temporal and spatial boundaries. It may actively involve some agent(s) and affect any primary entity. An event may be discrete, happening at a specific moment in time, or may occur over an extended period of time. Events may have events as parts, and events may precede or follow one another. Multiple agents may participate in the same event, and in different roles. It may be useful or necessary to use Event entity: - when the history of an entity has to be accurately taken into account. One may thus decide to pick out some of the events of that history, for example those who affect the entity and change its state or environment, and to describe them so that this description can be processed. In such a case the Event entity will connect several entities. For example, a creation Event may connect a Record, a DateRange, a Place, an Agent. - in order to specify that a Record, Record Set or Record Part has an Event as subject. Some things that happen and that actively involve agents may be considered either Events or Actions, depending whether they are viewed as contextual entities or whether the focus is on the records that may result from it, in short depending on the perspective adopted when describing them. An Event may be categorized using an Event Type entity. In particular, archivists, records managers and end users may need to use some main event categories concerning either the history of record resources, either the life of agents, for classifying, thus grouping and searching events. Examples include curation events (creation, accumulation, acquisition, transfer, arrangement, description, digitization, deletion…) and biographical events (birth, marriage, death…), or events in the existence of corporate bodies (creation, merger…).

Class: rico:Instantiation

Direct subclass of: rico:Thing

Label (rdfs:label):
Instantiation
Definition (rdfs:comment)
The inscription of information on a physical carrier in any persistent, recoverable form by an Agent as a means of communicating information through time and space.
Scope note (skos:scopeNote)
A Record or Record Part must have been instantiated at least once, though this instantiation may no longer exist at the moment of description. An instantiation might also exist at the moment of description, but be destroyed at a later moment in time eg. when a derived instantiation becomes the main instantiation. A Record Set may have an instantiation, which is to say that it is not a necessary condition. An Instantiation may be derived from another Instantiation. A Record Resource may have many Instantiations simultaneously (for instance, a record printed and saved in the same time as docx and pdf/A = 3 instantiations) or through time (e.g., (copy of a record). Depending on the context, a new instantiation may be treated as representing a new or as the same record resource. While in the process of re-instantiation something is loss and something is preserved, it is up to the context and the Agent that produce/use that instantiation to assess if the two instantiations are functionally equivalent or not. For instance, a postcard representing a town map from 1874 (instantiation 1) is digitized and kept as a jpeg file (instantiation 2). The digital copy may be considered as instantiating the "same" record by an Agent considering the information transmitted by the record (e.g., the urban landscape displayed), but "different" records by an antiquarian. Successive instantiations may change the perceivable boundaries of a record resource. For instance, a case file comprising many records may be digitized and saved as one single pdf file, which, from management perspective, may be treated as one record. Similarly, a large record set (a fonds or a series) may be dematerialized and kept as one database. On the other hand, one record (main document and its annexes) may be digitized in separate files and each one managed as discrete “physical” items. Instantiations may need mediation for allowing communicate the records resource. While a traditional record resource sufficed human literation in order to receive the information, a vinyl recording, a video cassette or a digital file needs a device (mediator) to codify/decodify the information conveyed. This mediator may imply simple physical components (a turntable needle, for instance), or a complex gallery of software and hardware elements. Instantiations are more than the mere content of record resource and from this perspective they may be the focus of preservation and physical management of records. Using a certain form for medieval charters or a particular format for records may have implications on the authenticity of the records. Hence, the way a record resource is instantiated contributes to the contextualizing the content. Distinguishing the message conveyed (Record Resource) and its physical representations allows to manage their descriptions in an efficient way, and to keep information about a Record Resource even when no physical representation of it exists any more, or is known. The relations between the distinct instantiations can then be expressed wherever these instantiations may be kept, and they can be related to the Record Resource they represent .

Scope note (skos:scopeNote)
Language is used in the description of a Record Resource to designate the language used in representing the information conveyed, and in the description of an Agent to designate the language used by the Agent to communicate. When the language of a Record Resource is written, or an Agent communicates using written language, then the Language Type designation (code or name) should be paired with a Script Type designation. There is an ISO maintained Controlled Concept Groups for human languages (ISO 639-2: Codes for the Representation of Names of Languages). ISO 639-2 includes a list of three-letter codes for each language, as well as the name of the language in English, French, and German. For obscure or rare languages, ISO 639-5: Codes for the Representation of Names of Languages Part 5: Alpha-3 code for language families and groups may be used to extend the range of languages covered.

Mandate is a kind of Rule. A Mandate confers the authority or competencies of Agents to perform a specified Activity. In addition to assigning an Activity and delegating authority to perform the Activity to an Agent, a Mandate commonly limits the Place (jurisdiction) and Date (time period) within which an Agent may perform the Activity (where and when). Mandates exist in a specific social and cultural context, and within that context are subject to change over time. While a Mandate may be tacit, in whole or part, it may be explicitly expressed in a variety of documentary sources (for example, constitutions, legislation, (legal) acts, statutes, legal codes, ordinances, charges, charters, or mission statements). The evidence for identifying a Mandate may be found in its entirety in one documentary source (for example, a law or regulation), or may be found in two or more sources. A Mandate should not be confused with the one or more documentary sources that serve as evidence of its identity. A documentary source is a Record.

Direct subclass of: rico:Agent

Label (rdfs:label):
Person
Definition (rdfs:comment)
A human being with a social identity or persona.
Scope note (skos:scopeNote)
Person is a kind of Agent. Most commonly, a human being (biological person) has a single coeval social identity or persona. In everyday discourse, this is the “real person.” Less common though not rare, over the course of a lifetime, personae in addition to the coeval (or “original”) persona may be associated with the human being. Such “alternative personae” are most often created by the original person for specific purposes. Under some circumstances, an alternative persona might eclipse or replace the original person (Mark Twain eclipsing Samuel Clemens; John Wayne eclipsing Marion Mitchell Morrison), that is, the social (shared) alternative identity becomes the predominate identity. Less common yet is two or more persons collaborate to create a shared persona. Persona shared by two or more Persons constitute a kind of Group. Within the archival context, the original Person generally will be the focus of the description, with alternative personae noted. Exceptionally, an alternative persona may displace the coeval persona. This entity includes: historical or current people; people that manage records.

Both jurisdictions and natural features are historical entities. A Place thus may have begin and end dates, and changing boundaries that result from human or natural events. A Jurisdiction is the bounded geographic area within which an Agent has the authority to perform specified activities constrained by rules. This entity includes: - Places of the earth and in outer space. - Historical and current places. - Territorial areas above a corporate body with public powers perform their activities (states, regions, provinces, judicial areas, areas of local municipalities…) - Territorial areas above a religious corporate body performs their activities (ecclesiastical provinces, dioceses, archdioceses, archpriesthood, vicariates…) - Territorial areas above a nobiliary or feudal corporate body performs their activities (Duchies, counties…) - Regions, spot places, - Geographical features and landforms (valleys, mountains, rivers, lakes, caves, gulfs, islands…) - Places protected by their natural value (archaeological sites, national parks…) - Urban spaces (neighborhoods, squares, streets, gardens…) - Engineering works (paths, roads, motorways, highways, bridges, tunnels, aqueducts, dams, pipelines…) - Pilgrimage and commercial routes….

Direct subclass of: rico:Agent

Label (rdfs:label):
Position
Definition (rdfs:comment)
The functional role of a Person within a Group.
Scope note (skos:scopeNote)
Position is a kind of Agent. Position is the intersection of a Person and a Group. Position exists independently of the Person that holds the position. More than one Person may hold a Position. Position is commonly defined in a mandate, often called a position description or job description. The mandate may specify the activity and competencies for performing the activity. A Position is often given a name. A Position may be tied to a project or to a set of tasks and thus have a defined duration. A Position may change over time, as the Group that establishes it changes over time. Position is not to be confused with Occupation or Activity. Within the Records created by a Corporate Body, a Position may be used to identify the Record Sets resulting from Activities performed by one or more Persons holding the Position over time, without necessarily identifying or describing the Person or Persons, or identifying which Records were created by each Person.

Class: rico:RecordResource

IRI: https://www.ica.org/standards/RiC/ontology#RecordResource

Direct subclass of: rico:Thing

Label (rdfs:label):
Record Resource
Definition (rdfs:comment)
A Record, Record Set, or Record Part produced or acquired and retained by an Agent in the course of Activity.
Scope note (skos:scopeNote)
Producing a record resource may imply either its newly creation or a reuse of previous existing information by combination, rearrangement, selecting, reformatting etc. Records, Record Sets, and Record Parts are all evidence of the activities of an Agent. More than one Agent may be involved in the creation of a Record Resource. The role of the Agent in creating the Record Resource may take different forms, for example, authoring of an individual record, accumulating a set of records, or forming a set of records. Though a Record, Record Set, and Record Part, under most circumstances, may be easily distinguished from one another, frequently identifying the boundary of each and how the “bounded information regions” interrelate, may present particular challenges. Documentary Forms provide the rules governing many Records, providing criteria for identifying its boundary, and identifying its essential Record Parts. Many Records, though, do not have well-established Documentary Forms, particularly electronic Records, where it may be difficult to determine whether individual elements represented in separate bitstreams are Record Parts, Records, or Record Sets. For example, is a photograph represented independently in a bitstream embedded in a text document a Record, or a Record Part. Or is the same photograph attached to an email, maintaining its independent representation, a Record or a Record Part? A further challenge is presented when information is grouped for some purpose, for example, zip or tar “file compression” for saving storage space. One file comprises multiple bitstreams subjected to techniques that remove bits that can be losslessly recovered when decompressed. Under what circumstances is such a compressed bitstream a Record or a Record Set? Determining when an information object is a Record, Record Part, or Record Set is based on perspective and judgement exercised in a particular context. In one context, the Agent describing an information object may designate it a Record, while another Agent in a different context may designate it a Record Part. Both designations are supported by RiC, and the significance of the difference for users of the Records is ameliorated by the fact that attributes and relations employed in describing each of the Record Entities are shared.

Label (rdfs:label):
Record Set
Definition (rdfs:comment)
One or more records that are associated by categorization and/or physical aggregation by the creator or other Agent responsible for preserving the creator’s records..
Scope note (skos:scopeNote)
The Record members in a Record Set may physically reside together, though physical proximity is not essential. In a particular context, an Agent (e.g. administrator, records manager, archivist, end-user, etc.) may select the Record members of a Record Set based on a shared attribute or attributes, or a shared Relation or Relations. The grouping of the Records serves a purpose or purposes specific to the context of the Agent. Any shared attribute or relation, or combination of shared attributes or relations may designate the Record members in a Record Set. All Record members of a Record Set may share the attribute of having been accumulated by the same Agent, or all share the same Documentary Form and are created over time by the same Activity. A Record Set may represent the act of classifying the Records in accordance with a formal classification scheme that may be based on Activity (or Function or Process), subject, organizational structure, or other criteria; an act of archival arrangement (e.g. based on common provenance); or some other selection and grouping that fulfils a particular purpose or purposes (e.g. a classification that reflects or supports the purposes of a researcher). By exception, some Records are brought together based on their not belonging in the context of selection to other designated groups: a ‘Miscellaneous’ series for example. Record Set created by an Agent in the course of life or work Activity should be kept in a manner that preserves context and evidential value. Records Sets may also contain other Records Sets. Both a Record Set and a Record may simultaneously be a member of more than one Record Set, and over the course of its existence, a Record Set or Record may be a member of an indeterminate number of Record Sets in an indeterminate number of contexts. Record Sets and Records contained within a Record Set may be ordered into a sequence based on a common property or relation, or common properties or relations (e.g. alphabetical by Agent or related Place name); chronological order by an allocated Date; or some other criterion (e.g. an imposed order by relevance).
