Dear Carsten
and all others,

I would like to bring your attention to the ISO standard for exchange of holdings:


ISO 20775:2009 Information and documentation -- Schema for holdings information


This standard contains an abstract model for holdings information and a serialization in pure XML. ISO 20775 covers more information than MARC21 Holdings and is focussed on exchange of information


Tha standard itself can be purchased at ISO <blocked::>  or the national standard institute.


The XML schema i avaiable at <blocked::> .


I would to hear more about your project and will be happy to help with reviews.



Best regards,


Leif Andresen

Emne: [BIBFRAME] New KIM Group Bestandsdaten (Holdings)

Dear colleagues and interested parties!

A new KIM Group 'Holdings' has been formed. Similar to the group 'Titeldaten' [1] we would like to give a best practice proposal for the RDF representation of library holdings information.

I invite everyone to participate in the group.

For discussion a mailing list [2] has been established. General information and documentation of the results of the group are to be found in the DNB-Wiki [3].

As a first step it would be useful to gather ideas, documents and notes on library holdings information [4].

I would be glad, if you contribute your ideas.
