Karen,

You are right. It's fairly straight-forward. The range is the datatype of the expected value. Where we have URL only, we expect it to be a URL and we can't say anything about what to expect when you get there, but hopefully it's rdf.

Where we have URI;Classname, we expect it to be rdf of that bf:Classname type.
I think the Related range of "URL;URL" is a mistaken transformation of the source file to the online presentation; will fix.

. Is it a class, or is it defining the datatype of the

Subject: Re: [BIBFRAME] Expected values question

Hello, hello -- I think this is a fairly straightforward question, and maybe something that needs to be added to the vocabulary web pages (if it isn't there already and I missed it). So...

What is the meaning of "URL" in the "Expected values" column, and in particular, can you clear up the meaning of "URL ; URL"?

Thank you,
kc
