Publication Abstract

Logical relationships between descriptive metadata statements can reveal important semantic features and support useful tools. This poster examines the logical features of a framework for collection/item metadata relationships, as part of placing the framework on a systematic logical foundation and assessing the logical requirements of systems to encode and reason over metadata relationships. The kind of logical constructs required to reason with these relationships will have an impact on the development of systems that take advantage of collection and item descriptions together.
