FRBR: toward some practical experimentation in ELAG?
1
I. Context
ELAG
FRBR
Susanna Peruginelli, Florence, January 2000:
FRBR =
Patrick Le Boeuf
"not only of a high theoretical value,
but also a practical one;
making it possible to integrate digital
resources with "traditional" material"
FRBR: toward some practical experimentation in ELAG?
2
I. Context
Experimentation is required!
• Implementation problems?
• Cataloguers’ comfort
• (catalogue production devices)
• Users’ comfort
• (OPAC devices)
Patrick Le Boeuf

3
I. Context
A new database  New data to feed it
 Paula Goossens’ Guidelines
Principles:
• New creations
• No MARC structure
• Just XML
Patrick Le Boeuf

4
I. Context
• 4 bibliographic families so far
•  not enough!
• They exist only on paper…
• Here are three of them:

II. Three examples
a) a "unicellular" family
(a very common case, especially for
National Bibliographic Agencies)

a) a "unicellular" family: comments
• Much redundancy: the same title three times!
• Cataloguers shouldn’t have to type the same data several times
• Once they’ve typed the title of a work, the catalogue production
system should provide them with a "by default" proposal:
which they would change only when necessary

II. Three examples
b) "Boris Godunov"
The Pushkin play, the libretto, the opera, etc…

II. Three examples
c) Coronelli’s "Terrestrial Globe"
A 3D cartographic material
which may also exist as a 2D cartographic material,
which has been photographed,
and about which there are electronic resources,
(on CD-ROM and on the Web),
and manuscript resources…

III. Future developments
• More than just 4 bibliographic families
Are there any volunteers?
• A place, a computer, a software,
and the database is done!
 An opportunity: the VisualCat structure from the
Danish Bibliographic Centre (thanks to Poul Henrik
Jørgensen!)

III. Future developments
• Two main focuses:
– Ergonomics of the catalogue production system
– OPAC issues

IV. Some reflections on OPACs
Last year Dan Matei said:
"We must get rid of traditional "Author / Title / Subject" OPACs!"
– Would it really benefit our patrons?
– How could this be achieved?
A proposal (not an answer!):
