All Resources that are part of a Release are contained in a <ResourceList> composite. This composite forces that all Resources are communicated in a specific order:

  • First all <SoundRecording>s need to be declared and described, following by

  • <MIDI> Resources, then

  • <Video> Resources, then

  • <Image> Resources, then

  • <Text> Resources, then

  • <SheetMusic> Resources, then

  • <Software> Resources, and finally,

  • <UserDefinedResource>.

Of course, this order may not be the one that an artist has decided that the Resources should appear on his/her/their Release. The right – and only – place to communicate the sequencing of Resources is the <ResourceGroup> (which is part of the <ReleaseDetailsByTerritory> composite).

The sample on the right shows how this can be done. For the avoidance of doubt, the <ReleaseResourceReferenceList> cannot be used to sequence Resources.

The <ResourceGroup> can also be used to group Resources into the digital equivalent of "sides" and "disks" (e.g. for boxed sets).
