Thanks for this, Kevin. The audio quality left something to be desired, but such is life. I gather from the presentation that the Creative Work class is where FRBR expressions will reside (given that the experimental Creative Work descriptions are created from MARC 21 authority records, and these include translations). 

The use of reviews as Annotations of Creative Works raises the question of the long-term viability of undifferentiated translations as useful instances (as opposed to Instances) of Creative Works, since a review of Translation A of the Sorrows of Young Werther is not a review of Translation B (with which it is necessarily combined in a description of an undifferentiated translation [e.g., Goethe, Johann Wolfgang von, 1749-1832. Die Leiden des jungen Werthers. English, which includes translations by a variety of translators, of varying skill and fidelity]).

Subject: [BIBFRAME] SWIB12 Presentation about BIBFRAME Model

We were invited to present about the BIBFRAME model/initiative at the 2012 SWIB (Semantic Web in Bibliotheken [Libraries]) conference in Cologne, Germany on Wednesday.  Since it is of interest to the broader community also, we wanted to provide some links.
