This is my definition:
A holding is a particular copy of a document that is held by, provided and/or made available by someone.

This definition is based on the concept of a "document" which has been addressed by Buckland (1997) - I doubt that further analysis of this term will bring us closer to a consensus. The core of a holding ontology should be in the second concept "particular copy of" and in the third concept "held by, provided and/or made available by". In the most simplest case, the holding ontology could consists of nothing bot two properties for these two concepts.

The spreadsheet is write-protected and the DNB wiki requires an account (I had a wiki account but I forgot the password long ago and there is no may to request a new password).
