The Functional Ontology of Filmic Documents (open access)

The Functional Ontology of Filmic Documents

This book chapter discusses the functional ontology of filmic documents. The authors examine a few phases of probing of filmic documents, and the relationship between structure and meaning. The authors have taken the liberty of sketching the earlier phases and of presenting the most recent in somewhat more detail. Considerations of the early phases, among other issues of document use, led to the functional ontology construction as a foundation for this probing and for wider concerns within the arena of messages, meanings, and uses.

By educating the community today on how to protect the treasures in their care, we have the potential to minimize the repairs needed for these items in the future.
