Status: 
Open
Background: 

In the 48th CIDOC CRM and 41st FRBR CRM sig meeting (virtual), during the discussion about curated holdings vs aggregates/sets of things/referential collections (issue 442), MD mentioned a  white paper produced for EDM-DCC (Modeling Cultural Collections for Digital Aggregations and Exchange Environments), in which were made fundamental distinctions about collections. The basic division of collections distinguishes between: holdings collections (i.e., of items in the custody or control of an organization or curator) vs. referential collections (i.e., referring to, rather than directly holding, its items), then the sig decided  it would be a good starting point to   discuss how to treat other senses like aggregates/sets of things/referential collections as put together for an internet auctions in a new issue. 
HW  assigned to GB, ES, MD, RS to work on that and asked MD to share the Europeana white paper with them.
