This document defines the Ontology for Media Resource 1.0. We take the term of ontology in its loosest possible definition: a core vocabulary. The ontology for media resources is meant to bridge the different descriptions of media resources on the Web, as opposed to media resources in local archives or musea. It is defined based on a core set of properties which covers basic metadata to describe media resources. Further it defines syntactic and semantic level mappings between elements from existing formats. The ontology is supposed to foster the interoperability among various kinds of metadata formats currently used to describe media resources on the Web.
