RiC-O (Records in Contexts-Ontology) is an OWL ontology for describing
archival record resources. As the second part of Records in Contexts standard,
it is a formal representation of Records in Contexts Conceptual Model (RiC-CM).
The current official version is <html:strong>v0.2</html:strong>; it is
compliant with RiC-CM v0.2 full draft, that will be published in February or
March 2021, and that is slightly different from <html:a
v0.2 preview, that was published in December 2019.
RiC-O provides a generic vocabulary and formal rules for creating RDF
datasets (or generating them from existing archival metadata) that describe in a
consistent way any kind of archival record resource. It can support publishing
RDF datasets as Linked Data, querying them using SPARQL, and making inferences
using the logic of the ontology. @en
