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 or the national standard institute.


The XML schema i avaiable at


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.
