Introduction

LIDO is an XML schema intended for delivering metadata, for use in a variety of online services, from an organization’s collections database to portals of aggregated resources, as well as exposing, sharing and connecting data on the web. Its strength lies in its ability to support the typical range of descriptive information about objects of material culture. It can be used for all kinds of object, e.g. art, cultural, technology and natural science and supports multilingual portal environments.

The LIDO schema is the result of a substantial redesign and enhancement of the CDWA Lite and museumdat schemas based on recommendations of the CDWA Lite/museumdat Working Group, community feedback and further CIDOC-CRM analysis. It mainly builds on CDWA and includes additional concepts to meet SPECTRUM requirements.

For more information on LIDO please refer to: http://www.lido-schema.org

Prepared for CIDOC LIDO Working Group by LIDO-DE Working Group.

The schema is developed at https://gitlab.gwdg.de/lido/development. LIDO v1.1 is backwards compatible with LIDO v1.0. For a summary of changes please refer to the repository’s README. The full history of LIDO can be found in http://www.lido-schema.org/schema/v1.0/lido-v1.0-specification.pdf, 2.3 History of the schema.

Schematron rules

Allow free text or LIDO's concept elements (mutually exclusive)

Rule ID

sch_MixedContent

Description

Some elements in LIDO v1.0 should be controlled in the future whereas they are free text elements in LIDO v1.0. To ensure backwards compatibility either a free text or a controlled term should be provided in a mutually exclusive way.

Rule

(skos:Concept or lido:conceptID or lido:term) and not(text()[not(normalize-space(.) = '')] or @*) or (text()[normalize-space(.) != ''] and not(skos:Concept or lido:conceptID or lido:term))

Error or warning thrown

Either a free text (incl. its attributes) OR a combination of skos:Concept, lido:conceptID and lido:term can be a child of [the element in focus], but not both at the same time.

Deprecation Warning: Controlled vocabulary instead of free text

Rule ID

sch_MixedContentInfo

Description

In upcoming versions of LIDO some element won't allow for free text anymore but will require terms taken from a (local) controlled vocabulary. This should improve the interoperability of the data and recall rates in aggregating web services.

Rule

text()[matches(., '[\w]')]

Error or warning thrown

Deprecation: In upcoming versions of LIDO [the element in focus] will only allow for skos:Concept, lido:conceptID and lido:term as child elements. The use of free text will be deprecated.

Expansion of skos:Concept

Rule ID

sch_SKOS_properties

Description

Ensures that when enriching a dataset with information retrieved via the URI provided in skos:Concept, only SKOS properties are added to the dataset.

Rule

namespace-uri() != 'http://www.w3.org/2004/02/skos/core#'

Error or warning thrown

Only SKOS properties are allowed within skos:Concept.

Possible values for lido:rightsType@lido:type

Rule ID

sch_rightsType_type

Description

In LIDOv1.1 a lido:type attribute is introduced for lido:rightsType in order to discern generic rights and specific ones. This rule ensures that only the URIs for these two types of rights are used when @lido:type is set.

Rule

(@lido:type = 'http://terminology.lido-schema.org/lido00920' or @lido:type = 'http://terminology.lido-schema.org/lido00921') or not(@lido:type)

Error or warning thrown

@lido:type can either be omitted or must hold one of the following URIs: http://terminology.lido-schema.org/lido00920, http://terminology.lido-schema.org/lido00921.

[Data Quality] @pref: "alternative" instead of "alternate"

Rule ID

sch_alternate

Description

LIDO v1.0 falsely suggests the value 'alternate' for the pref attribute. It is established to use 'alternative' in this context.

Rule

@lido:pref = 'alternate'

Error or warning thrown

Quality: Use 'alternative' instead of 'alternate' in this context. Consider changing the attribute's value or using the corresponding LIDO terminology.

[Data Quality] @pref: Discern preferred and alternative elements

Rule ID

sch_pref

Description

If there is more than one element holding a @pref, alternatives as well as the preferred element should be indicated. This isn't stated clearly in the LIDO v1.0 schema documentation but should be kept in mind when indexing objects; otherwise the preferred variant might be unclear to a data user. Also, omitting this attribute contradicts international best practices for retrieval quality.

Rule

(count($siblings) > 1) and not($siblings/@lido:pref = 'preferred' or $siblings/@lido:pref = 'http://terminology.lido-schema.org/pref/preferred' or $siblings/@lido:pref = 'http://terminology.lido-schema.org/lido00169') and not($siblings/@lido:pref = 'alternative' and $siblings/@lido:pref = 'alternate' or $siblings/@lido:pref = 'http://terminology.lido-schema.org/pref/alternative' or $siblings/@lido:pref = 'http://terminology.lido-schema.org/lido00170')

Error or warning thrown

Quality: When providing more than one [the element in focus] the preferred and alternative variant(s) should be cleary marked as such via @pref.

[Data Quality] Avoid Providing Resource Measurements When Using IIIF

Rule ID

sch_IIIF_Measurements

Description

IIIF resources provide information about their measurements in their info.json. Therefore it is redundant to also make the resource's measurements available in lido:resourceMeasurementsSet.

Rule

not((lido:resourceMeasurementsSet) and (@lido:type='http://terminology.lido-schema.org/lido00911' or @lido:type='http://terminology.lido-schema.org/lido00912'))

Error or warning thrown

Quality: Do not set lido:resourceMeasurementsSet when providing a IIIF resource. Resource measurements are available in the resource's info.json.

[Data Quality] Use integer values for measurementValue

Rule ID

sch_rule_measurementValue

Description

Check if measurementsValue contains a decimal fraction or other non numerals as the recommendation is to use integer values and appropriate measurementUnit.

Rule

matches(., '^[0-9]*$')

Error or warning thrown

Quality: Element should contain integer value for [the element in focus] for international interoperability.

[Data Quality] xs:dateTime Dates

Rule ID

sch_DateTime

Description

Check if a given string complies to the ISO 8601 date convention, i.e. an optional '-' to indicate CE or BCE date range followed by a minimum of 4 digits denoting the year in the proleptic Gregorian calendar, an optional 2-digit month, an optional 2-digit day of month, an optional 'T' with a 2-digit hour (as 24-hour clock), an optional 2-digit minute and seconds, and an optional time zone designation of either Z for UTC or the timezone offset in hours:minutes. Omitting a timezone designation indicates using a local time reference. A timestamp should be used for recording the recordMetadataDates. This pattern is used for the cases where an element allows for xs:string in LIDO v1.0 while providing a date.

Rule

matches(., '-?([0-9]{4,})((-(0[1-9]|1[12]))?(-([0][1-9]|[12][0-9]|3[01])(T[01][0-9]|2[0-3])?(:[0-5][0-9]){0,2})?([Z]|(([+-][01][0-9]))(:?[0-5][0-9]){0,1})?)$')

Error or warning thrown

Quality: The date provided in [the element in focus] should follow the pattern [-]YYYY[Y+][-MM[-DD[Thh[:mm[:ss[Z|(+|-)hh:mm]]]]]]).

owl:sameAs

Rule ID

sch_OWL

Description

Ensures that only owl:sameAs (and not another element/class from the OWL namespace is used as a child element for actorComplexType, placeComplexType and legalBodyRefComplexType.

Rule

not(owl:*[not(self::owl:sameAs)])

Error or warning thrown

Only owl:sameAs should be used as direct child of [the element in focus] from the OWL namespace.

rightsType@type: generic or specific type

Rule ID

sch_rightsType

Description

A LIDO element holding lido:rightsType can either hold a generic or a specific type of right. Since a right can fall in only one of these categories, they are mutually exclusive.

Rule

@lido:type = 'http://terminology.lido-schema.org/lido00920' and not(preceding-sibling::lido:rightsType[@lido:type = 'http://terminology.lido-schema.org/lido00921']) or @lido:type = 'http://terminology.lido-schema.org/lido00921' and not(preceding-sibling::lido:rightsType[@lido:type = 'http://terminology.lido-schema.org/lido00920']) or count(parent::*/lido:rightsType) = 1 and not(@lido:type)

Error or warning thrown
