All,

 

We're thinking about modeling identifiers (and other properties?) in two ways:

 

1) generic property with a more specific data type:

 

                bf:identifer  "9780394856308"^^http://example/org/isbn13

 

or

 

2) specific property:

                                               bf:isbn13 "9780394856308"

 

where 'bf:isbn' is a subproperty of 'bf:identifier'.

 

How does the community feel about these two options, and why?

 

Thanks,

 

Nate
