About the RDA Registry and vocabularies
Representing the RDA ontology
Element set families
Canonical RDA properties are linked to associated unconstrained properties, that have no domains or ranges, by RDF sub-property relationships.
Most RDA elements are therefore represented in the RDA Vocabularies in a "family" of element sets.
The family consists of four member properties:
- An unconstrained property with no declared domain or range.
- A Toolkit canonical property with an RDA entity declared as the domain, but no range.
- An object property with the same entity declared as the domain and an RDA entity declared as the range.
- A datatype property with the same entity declared as the domain and a literal declared as the range.
