Definition: An identifiable thing that fulfills a requirement.

Usage here is closer to definition used in RDF (www.w3.org/TR/REC-rdf-syntax), generalized from ISO19115, which defines resource as an ‘asset or means that fulfills a requirement’ without defining asset or means. Submitted 14 April 2016
