Dear A., Sorry but only some of the items on the main page go directly to a document.  Please click the linked page for Models and Vocabulary and that page has several items not brought out directly on the main page.  There is an extensive use case document linked to there.  Sally

Phil--

That is a great example. I didn't for a moment intend to imply that moving from models of description based around records to models based around fine-grained assertions isn't going to have really good outcomes for patrons: I sincerely believe that it will and that it's a very important task. My concern was more to the area of process. I was wondering how use cases like the one you outline below have been assembled and examined and used as a basis for the Bibframe work. For example, at "http://www.loc.gov/bibframe" neither the "Analyses" nor the "Use Cases" bullet is actually linked to anything.

Music has been very I'll served by MARC, the combination of complex data, multiple works contained in a single resource, and a flat file structure makes discovery extremely difficult.

Sound recording).  All those false drops in searching that are pervasive in discovery systems now that are based on MARC can be eliminated.  This is a HUGE win for us music folks.  A brilliant solution and directly user focused.

It is not very clear to me by what process ideas about patron uses and requirements have informed the construction of Bibframe.

Many of the elements that have been added to MARC over the years (after taking many hours of discussion within the MARC committee) rarely appear in actual library data. Yet more continue to be added. Where are we headed? Why? What is the result we seek?
