So is rdfs:value.  The question is:  what is the “appropriate” difference between the two?

It's the value of the resource to which it's attached.

There is an ISBN, and its value is 9783...

There is an ABC identifier, and its value is MX3-387

There is an untyped identifier from source system xyz, and it's value is 123...





Example 3

bf:baseMaterial [

bf:code [ rdf:value “o” ;

bf:source [rdf:value “marc007ng04” ] ] ;

bf:note [ a bf:Note ;

rdfs:label “Image printed on thick gold paper.” ] ] .


There is an untyped resource, which one imagines is a Code, with value "o".

There is an untyped resource, which is some sort of Source, with value "marc007..."





Example (truncated)


bf:shelfMarkLcc [rdf:value “LB2395.C65 1991” ] ;

bf:usageAndAccessPolicy [

a bf:AccessPolicy ;

rdf:value “unrestricted” ] .


There is an LCC, and its value is LB...

There is a Policy and its value is "unrestricted"   

Note -- this use is not very machine friendly. A better model would have identifiable policies, with their own URIs.
