Canonical URIs for concepts

Canonical URIs have the form
http://terminology.lido-schema.org/
lidoddddd
where ddddd is a immutable sequence of five digits. This form is canonical insofar, as it represents a concept independent of natural language, and also independent from its association with a particular member vocabulary of the LIDO Terminology.

Example:

 http://terminology.lido-schema.org/lido00141

Symbolic URIs for concepts

These have the form
http://terminology.lido-schema.org/
concept-scheme-name/concept-name
where concept-scheme-name identifies the LIDO Concept Scheme of the LIDO Terminology, and concept-name is a (possibly abbreviated) rendering of the preferred term in English.

Example:

 http://terminology.lido-schema.org/recordType/item-level_record

URIs for concept schemes

URIs identifying a specific LIDO Concept Scheme as a single resource are composed of terminology.lido-schema.org appended by a concept-scheme-name. These URIs will be resolved to the set of metadata statements about the concept scheme. They also serve to identify specific concept schemes as named graphs in SPARQL queries.

Example:

 http://terminology.lido-schema.org/recordType
