Jon (others),

Just to extend what Nate said about the URL for viewing a class and related properties:

  *   Early on I had a real hard time with the BIBFRAME documentation because I usually clicked on “List View” from the documentation. If you click on Category View<> it is organized by like properties, but you can click on the classes in the "used with" column to see properties associated with the class.
  *   If you know the class you’re interested in you can change the following URL syntax to see the class,{Class}.html , e.g. sends give you the Instance class with its associated properties.

Hope this helps,

Subject: [BIBFRAME] How is Bibframe data stored?

Hi all,

I’m wondering how Bibframe data is stored? I’m wondering if anyone has thought about defining mappings between it and a relational database or at least an object oriented programming model that could be manipulated easily? Does such a thing exist, or are ILS implementers left to figure this out on their own? How is a programmer expected to work with the data? XML parser, then, build your own programming model? On there is a list of classes and properties. If you click on a class, it takes you to a once sentence description of the class. However, it doesn’t enumerate the properties that are applicable to that class. Shouldn’t there be a list of the properties for the class?
