Re: [SPAM] Re: [rda-agrisemantics-wg] Resource/data life cycle

Erick, Simon,
Thank you very much! The question and the answer were very useful also to us!
At Embrapa, were are engaged to implement a data, information and knowledge governance model, where data management is one of the starting points... We separate the concept of "governance" from the concept of "management", but we try to maintain the whole (and ontological) conceptual route that interrelates them. Good (sub-)models for the units of this complex system are always welcome!
Best regards.

Resource/data life cycle

Hello,
I was wondering whether within any of the RDA initiatives there is any
guideline / document / or whatsoever on the data/resources life cycle? By
life cycle I mean the stages an piece of data (e.g. a
concept/class/instance in an ontology) could undergo such:
- under review,
- active (reviewed),
- obsolete (inactive?),
- ...
Any pointer would be highly appreciated.
cheers,
Erick Antezana

1st group call

Dear all,
The working group has been reviewed and approved last week by the Technical Advisory Board (TAB), and we are now waiting for final endorsement by the RDA Council, which is just a matter of days. Meanwhile, we thought it would be good to have a last call before the end of the year, to touch base on where we are and start organizing activities for next year.
Proposed agenda for this call:
1. Housekeeping & communication: regular calls? What time? Shared documents,..

Dear all,
I'm writing to request your attention to a survey [1,2] that will help us
decide among alternative ways to structure the hierarchy of the new Global
Agricultural Concept Scheme (GACS) [3,4]. If you can do this, we'd appreciate

meeting on November 22.

about agriculture to a smaller set of core concepts.
The source concepts were merged into GACS concepts along with their

RES: [SPAM] [rda-agrisemantics-wg] Your participation to IGAD pre-conf meeting in Barcelona, April 2017

Dear Caterina and colleagues,
I don't have yet editing rights to the folder, but even so I could not participate because there is no time for preparations and much less funds to finance the trip. So, I think unnecessary to fill in the data in the worksheet.
Thank you and best regards,
