BIBFRAME Logo This single-page view presents the entire vocabulary on one page with an ordered list of classes and properties, followed by more detailed information panels further down the document. Links are internal to the page, and the browser back button can reverse navigation on the page.

Subclasses and subproperties of classes and properties are not included in the Class List and the Property List, but are listed at the panel for the class or property to which they relate. A class or property with subclasses is marked in the list with a “+” before the class or property name (and a separate list of these is also made in a note below each list).

Changes to a vocabulary element (name, expected value, or definition) are noted in the panel for the element. Classes and properties that have been deprecated from the vocabulary are listed after the panels here, and may be reviewed in the Vocabulary archive at https://github.com/lcnetdev/bibframe-ontology.
