We want to mint a local URI whenever we want to assert anything else about that entity based on local knowledge. So, for example, if there is an authoritative record at http://www.linkedmdb.org/ but Harvard has a copy of a film that was used in Professor X’s class and we want to described this, then
1. We would mint a URI for this work at Harvard , Eg Newly minted URI-X = Id.lib.harvard.edu/aleph/123456/catalog
2. Then assert triples in our local triple store something like ((in RDF of course, totally made up ontology here for illustrating…).
