I see strong parallels between a theater or musical performance, a football game, and a scientific dataset. There is a set of rules (a musical score, rules of the game, methods), a set of performers (musicians, football players, physical parts of the experiment) and the results (a performance, last Monday nights football game, a dataset). You may have annotations on any part of these (the Friday night performance of a particular revival (yet again) of Annie), a particular dataset, etc.). What's the work here? I feel like it's just out of my reach. Using MARC, I had no hope of even attempting to approach these issues. I'm hoping in someway BIBFRAME will give me an model I can use more systematically to resources in general.
The underlying BIBFRAME model is designed to integrate with and engage in the wider information community while also serving the very specific needs libraries and similar memory organizations. I would be very interested in your exploration of BIBFRAME in a wider information environment. In particular your lessons learned regarding the capturing of Works and the various relationships you may mint to contextualize these resources would be most welcomed.
