ISSUE: Decision to not duplicate CRM classes in LRMoo results in deprecating F10 Person as it is equivalent to E21 Person.


Consequence: Present F10 scope note includes additional text not present in the E21 scope note.

Propose to add the text in yellow highlight to E21. It seems generally applicable with little modification. Text in green highlight in F10 scope note is valid, but may be better elsewhere, as in the LRMoo overview.
E21 Person

Subclass of: E20 Biological Object

E39 Actor

Scope note: This class comprises real persons who live or are assumed to have lived.

Legendary figures that may have existed, such as Ulysses and King Arthur, fall into this class if the documentation refers to them as historical figures. In cases where doubt exists as to whether several persons are in fact identical, multiple instances can be created and linked to indicate their relationship. The CRM does not propose a specific form to support reasoning about possible identity.

                        In a bibliographic context, a name presented following the conventions usually employed for personal names will be assumed to correspond to an actual real person (E21 Person), unless evidence is available to indicate that this is not the case. The fact that a persona may erroneously be classified as an instance of E21 Person does not imply that the concept comprises personae.

Examples:

            Tut-Ankh-Amun

            Nelson Mandela

F10 Person

Equal to: E21 Person

Scope note: This class comprises real persons who live or are assumed to have lived. Bibliographic identities or personae assumed by an individual or a group should be modelled as F12 Nomen and connected to the relevant person or group with an instance of F35 Nomen Use Statement, even if nothing more can be said about this person or groupIn a bibliographic context, a name presented following the conventions usually employed for personal names will be assumed to correspond to an actual real person (F10 Person), unless evidence is available to indicate that this is not the case. The fact that a persona may erroneously be classified as an instance of F10 Person does not imply that the concept comprises personae.

Examples: Margaret Atwood

Hans Christian Andersen

Queen Victoria

 
Outcome: 

In the 41st joined meeting of the CIDOC CRM SIG and ISO/TC46/SC4/WG9 and the 34th FRBR - CIDOC CRM Harmonization meeting,  the sig accepted Pat's proposal. Thus they changed the scope note of E21 Person
