PID Collections WG case statement available for comments

  • Creator
  • #86007


    Dear all,
    we want to draw your attention to the case statement of the proposed PID
    Collections WG, which is now available for public comment on the RDA
    The PID Collections WG will focus on solutions for managing object
    collections where each object and also the collection itself may bear
    PIDs. We expect that some aspects of PID Information Types will be
    addressed by the WG efforts as well, such as types describing the
    central characteristics of collections and sketching essential
    operations on them. Particularly, there should be a more general model
    of collections and a practical demonstrator where the ideas of typing
    and the PIT API can be extended.
    Note that we are also planning to have a BoF session at the sixth RDA
    Plenary in Paris, where these and other aspects should be discussed.
