The ALCTS FRBR Interest Group invites your participation at ALA Annual 
Conference, at 10:30 a.m. -12:00 on Friday, June 24, 2011, at the Morial 
Convention Center, Room 338.

Co-sponsored by ALA, Cataloging & Classification Quarterly, and MARCIVE, 

There will be two presentations:

1)1) Functional requirements for bibliographic linked data: the FR 
family and the Semantic Web (Gordon Dunsire, Scotland)

*Abstract:* This presentation describes the development of 
representations of IFLA's Functional Requirements family of 
bibliographic metadata models in the Semantic Web's Resource description 
framework (RDF). The entities and relationships defined in Functional 
requirements for bibliographic records (FRBR), Functional requirements 
for authority data (FRAD), and Functional requirements for subject 
authority data (FRSAD) are expressed as RDF classes and properties which 
can be used as the bases of "triples" for library linked data. Issues 
discussed include the assignment of identifiers, labels, definitions, 
scope notes, and semantic constraints, and how the process is feeding 
back into the development of a consolidated Functional requirements 
model by the FRBR Review Group. The presentation also discusses the 
impact of this work on related standards and the creation of linked data 
from legacy bibliographic records.

*Speaker bio:* Gordon Dunsire is a freelance consultant. His previous 
position was Head of the Centre for Digital Library Research at the 
University of Strathclyde, Glasgow, Scotland. He has a background in 
cataloguing and systems librarianship, and is a member of the FRBR 
Review Group and ISBD/XML Study Group which are developing Semantic Web 
representations of IFLA standards. He is also a member of the MODS 
Editorial Committee. He is a member of the W3C Library Linked Data 
Incubator Group and co-Chair of the DCMI RDA Task Group.

  G2) GLIMIR (Global Library Manifestation Identifier) (Richard Greene, 

*Abstract: *GLIMIR stands for Global Library Manifestation Identifier.  
OCLC is building on its work with record matching and FRBR Work set 
creation to identify and establish GLIMIR links among records for 
manifestations within FRBR works.  The initial implementation will be to 
address parallel records and reproductions but the model can be useful 
for establishing other relationships.  Much of the attention given FRBR 
has been at the Work and Expression level but there is a wealth of 
information within bibliographic records that can be utilized to 
establish relationships between manifestations.  The presentation will 
describe the work to date on GLIMIR, plans for implementation, 
implications for FRBR Work sets, and some future possibilities.
