A named query is a URI pattern available on dlcs.io (i.e., not this API) that will return a IIIF resource such as a collection, or manifest, or sequence, or canvas. For example:
This query is is an instance of the following template:
This customer (iiifly) has a named query called 'manifest' that takes two parameters - the space and the string1 metadata field. The query is internally defined to use an additional field - number1 - and to generate a manifest with one sequence, with each canvas in the sequence having one image. The images selected by the query must all have string1=ae678999 in this case, and are ordered by number1. An image query against the dlcs API returns a collection of DLCS Image objects. a Named Query uses an DLCS image query but then projects these images and constructs a IIIF resource from them, using the parameters provided. Information on designing and configuring named queries is provided in a special topic.
UNSTABLE Currently the named query implementation is a placeholder,

|PUT||create or replace a Named Query||vocab:NamedQuery||vocab:NamedQuery||200 OK, 201 Created Named Query, 404 Not found|
|PATCH||Update the supplied fields of the Named Query||vocab:NamedQuery||vocab:NamedQuery||205 Accepted Named Query, reset view, 400 Bad request, 404 Not found|
|DELETE||Delete the Named Query||owl:Nothing||205 Accepted Named Query, reset view, 404 Not found|
The name that appears for the query in the path on https://dlcs.io, e.g., 'manifest'
