FRBR Implementations


It's not that some people have willpower and some don't. It's that some people are ready to change and others are not. (1).

This chapter examines the major players in early FRBR implementations.

AustLit and MusicAustralia

"Austlit: A Gateway on Steriods" (Australian Literature Gateway)

www.austlit.edu.au:7777/presentations/DRRHGateway2 001.htm

http://setis.library.usyd.edu.au/drrh2001/papers/ayres .pdf

This online document (available both in HTML and PDF format, see above URLs) by Dr. Marie-Louise Ayres (executive manager, AustLit: Australian Literature Gateway, Academy Library) and by co-authors Kent Fitch (developer, Project Computing Pty. Ltd.), Annette Scarvell (content manager, University of New South Wales at the Australian Defence Force Academy [UNSW@ADFA]), and Kerry Kilner (University of Queensland), provides an overview of the Australian Literature Gateway and explains the process that went into creating AustLit; screen shots are also provided in the document.

AustLit provides access to more than 350,000 Australian creative and critical works through bibliographic citations and full text. It is administered through a consortium of eight universities and the National Library; contains information from previous databases prior to AustLit; and attempts to provide a single gateway for all Australians to information. The system was custom built, using Topic Maps for flexible relationships, the INDECS (www.indecs.org) and Harmony models for agents and their relationships with works, and FRBR for works of the consortium members. It is/was the first large implementation/prototype of the FRBR model.

This presentation by Marie-Louise Ayres examines the metadata and FRBR models for building the MusicAustralia prototype, focusing on the music of Australia and providing access to it. This report details how the project attempted to provide support for user navigation between related versions of a music work. It was presented at the DC-ANZ (Dublin Core-Australia New Zealand) Conference (Canberra, Australia, 2003).
