Hi Diane, Philippe,

In this draft model, the aggregation would be done at the (BIBFRAME) Work level. A set of collected stories, for example, would in fact be a Collection (Work) of other Works. Works are typed and a Collection is just one kind of Work. What connects these Works together are a set of defined relationships that create a Web of Works. The paperback (or hardback, or …) version of this collected Work would be instances of this Collection (but there may be other instances associated with the individual Works as well).  

Whats missing from this primer are more detailed use cases and example applications which help demonstrate more concretely this approach. I'm hopeful these will be made available soon. Nothing helps ground any model (and serialization, vocabulary, constraint layer, HTTP services, etc.) like practical examples. 

Diane, as you know no good idea goes unpunished ;), if there are specific examples that you would be willing to suggest that would be extremely helpful. I can't claim a quick turn around, but I'd be happy to give a go at representing these via BIBFRAME.

These are certainly fairly common in bibliographic metadata, and were not well handled in MARC or MODS. The FRBR model, though admittedly a complex beast, accommodated these materials, and gave some hope that there could be ways of handling those kinds of materials in ways that a machine could understand, rather than (as usual) depending on the human user to figure it out.
