Dear Dick, Corey and Bruce
Thank you very much for pointing me to several good examples of displays.
I'm especially interested in the concept of *not* using a table layout, ie
placing the labels above the relevant information. This may work for us,
especially as unlike the METS viewer examples, which displays the
<relatedItem with type="constituent"> data in the left hand panel, we want
to display constituent entry data in a single layout, and make it clear to
users what it means (something that I don't think happens very well in most
displays of MARC data with added entries).
This has given us plenty of food for thought, and I'll definitely ask your
views again when we get a bit closer to some real displays!
Dick, I assume the 'selected' and interpretive nature of the patriotic
melodies site means that there is no FRBR coding defining relationships
between the selected items?
