I'm wondering how conceptual the level of a BIBFRAME Work is when dealing with a multi-volume
work (e.g. Manga), vs. the conceptual level work in FRBR.
In FRBR, the entire title / series of a manga would be represented through the Work entity and
individual volumes within that series would fall in the Manifestation / Item layers.
In BIBFRAME, however, is it correct to say that an entire multi-volume series would be represented by
Work, with individual volumes within that series being represented by Instance? For example, "One
Piece" as the Work, with "One Piece: Volume 1", "One Piece: Volume 2" being the Instances? I believe
this is correct and that each individual volume would not be represented through an Instance and not
as a Work, but I'd like to make sure this is correct.
I think part of my confusion is coming from current cataloguing practices for manga in libraries,
where the entire series (in my example, the Work level) is given a record with individual volumes being
identified via a 999 field within the record for that series (rather than each Instance/volume receiving
its own record).
Apologies if this is a rather basic question, though the clarification help would be appreciated as
discussion on multi-volume resources in BIBFRAME is a little hard to come by.
