class Ifc2x3::IfcLibraryReference : public Ifc2x3::IfcExternalReference

An IfcLibraryReference is a reference into a library of information by Location (provided as a URI). It also provides an optional inherited Identification key to allow more specific references to library sections or tables. The inherited Name attribute allows for a human interpretable identification of the library item. Also, general information on the library from which the reference is taken, is given by the ReferencedLibrary relation which identifies the relevant occurrence of IfcLibraryInformation.

The ifcLibraryReference additionally provides the capability to handle multilingual library entries. The Language attribute then holds the language tag for the language used by the strings kept in the Name and the Description attribute.

HISTORY New Entity in IFC2.0.

IFC2x4 CHANGE Description and Language attribute added; ReferencedLibrary attribute added (reversing previous ReferenceIntoLibrary inverse relationship).
