PublicationVolume

Canonical URL: http://schema.org/PublicationVolume

A part of a successively published publication such as a periodical or multi-volume work, often numbered. It may represent a time span, such as a year.

  <br/><br/>See also <a href="http://blog.schema.org/2014/09/schemaorg-support-for-bibliographic_2.html">blog post</a>.

Usage: Between 10 and 100 domains

Acknowledgement

The W3C Schema Bib Extend (BibEx) group led the work to improve schema.org for bibliographic information, including terms for periodicals, articles and multi-volume works. The design was inspired in places (e.g. pageStart, pageEnd, pagination) by the Bibliographic Ontology, 'bibo'.

  <strong>Title:</strong> Be Careful What You Wish For: FRBR, Some Lacunae, A Review<br />

  <strong>Is Part Of:</strong>
  <div>Cataloging &amp; Classification Quarterly, 2012, Vol. 50 (5),</div>
  <div>p.360-368 [Peer Reviewed Journal]<br />
    <strong>Description:</strong>
      The library catalog as a catalog of works
      was an infectious idea, which together with research led to
      reconceptualization in the form of the FRBR conceptual model. Two
      categories of lacunae emerge—the expression entity, and gaps in the
      model such as aggregates and dynamic documents. Evidence needed to
      extend the FRBR model is available in contemporary research on
      instantiation. The challenge for the bibliographic community is to
      begin to think of FRBR as a form of knowledge organization system,
      adding a final dimension to classification. The articles in the present
      special issue offer a compendium of the promise of the FRBR
      model.
