pbcoreRelationType Vocabulary

"pbcoreRelationType describes the relationship between the asset being describe by the pbcore document and any other asset. Ideally it would contain text from a controlled vocabulary for describing relationships. There is some depth to what a relationship could be. The assets can be related as different episodes in a series, different tapes in a box set, or different versions of an original, among others.

@dateType Vocabulary

"dateType is an attribute that classifies by named type the date-related data of the element e.g., created, broadcast, dateAvailableStart.
Best practice: Used to clarify how the date is related to the asset or instantiation. Date Created may be the most common, but the element could also be used to describe the Date Accessioned or Date Deaccessioned, for example. Can be used as an attribute of the following elements: pbcoreAssetDate, instantiationDate."

PBCoreAssetType Vocabulary

"pbcoreAssetType is a broad definition of the type of intellectual content being described. Asset types might include those without associated instantiations (a collection or series), or those with instantiations (programs, episodes, clips, etc.)
Best practice: The asset type should broadly describe all related instantiations — for example, if an asset includes many instantiations representing different generations of a program, the asset type ‘program’ remains accurate for all of them."

It is not a self-contained vocabulary, but is instead designed to complement LCSH and provide tailored subject access to children and young adults when LCSH does not provide suitable terminology, form, or scope for children. LCSHAC records can be identified by the LCCN prefix 'sj'."
