Jörg,

 

I think that would require a greater willingness to diverge from RDA where transcription and the importance of statements come from, arguably more than from MARC. E.g. rule 2.12.1.1:

 

“A series statement is a statement identifying a series to which a resource belongs and the numbering of the resource within the series.”

 

2.12.9.3 mandates the use of wordy numbering too. The examples given:

·         no. 8

·         v. 12

·         4

·         63-2

·         tome 3, partie 2

·         v. 12, part 3, fasc. 1–2

 

MARC was designed to deal with RDA’s predecessor which worked on similar lines and if Bibframe needs to deal with RDA, it’s going to have to record statements and wordiness too. Perhaps it’s RDA that needs the sternest stare.

 

Thanks,


Tom

The example shows that Bibframe is not different from MARC. 

 

Data wrapped in verbose statements, with fillers like "v." or "pt.", is not suitable for entities being linked and queried on the web. So, there should no properties in Bibframe that contain pre-formatted information, like the "statements" in MARC.

 

I would rather prefer an enhanced knowledge representation like this:

 

<journal1> a fabio:Journal;

    prism:publicationName "International archives of photogrammetry and remote sensing"@en,

        "Internationales Archiv der Photogrammetrie und Fernerkundung"@de ;

    prism:issn "0256-1840";

    prism:volume "30";

    prism:part "3" .

    

<journal2> a fabio:AcademicProceedings, fabio:Journal;

    prism:publicationName "SPIE proceedings series";

    prism:issn "0277-786X";

    prism:volume "2357" .

 

<instance> frbr:partOf <journal1>, <journal2> .

 

Then, it is up to the interpreting program to print a formatted "series statements" for the librarian, by calling it "Series", by adding fillers etc.

 

Just my 2 cents.

 

Best regards,

 

Jörg

The treatment of series information in BIBFRAME 2.0 is a significant improvement over 1.0.  It provides for transcription of series and subseries in a straightforward way.

 

However, one problem remains:  how to handle multiple series and to keep associated series statements and enumerations together.  For example, take these series, which appear on a book:

International archives of photogrammetry and remote sensing, 0256-1840 ; v. 30, pt. 3 = Internationales Archiv der Photogrammetrie und Fernerkundung ; Bd. 30, Teil 3

SPIE proceedings series, 0277-786X ; v. 2357

 

In 2.0, this becomes:

< Instance> bf:seriesStatement “International archives of photogrammetry and remote sensing, 0256-1840 = Internationales Archiv der Photogrammetrie und Fernerkundung” ;

               bf:seriesStatement “SPIE proceedings series, 0277-786X” ;

               bf:seriesEnumeration “v. 30, pt. 3 = Bd. 30, Teil 3”  ;

               bf:seriesEnumeration “v. 2357” .

 

Unfortunately, there is no way to associate each of the bf:seriesEnumeration properties with its corresponding bf:seriesStatement in a way that machines understand.

 

A possible solution is to introduce, for example, a class Series and a property bf:series, which would be used with Work or Instance and expect Series.  The existing properties bf:seriesStatement, bf:seriesEnumeration, bf:subseriesStatement, and bf:subseriesEnumeration would be used with Series and expect Literal. 

 

The example would look like this:

< Instance> bf:series [ a bf:Series ;

                              bf:seriesStatement “International archives of photogrammetry and remote sensing, 0256-1840 = Internationales Archiv der Photogrammetrie und Fernerkundung”  ;

                              bf:seriesEnumeration “v. 30, pt. 3 = Bd. 30, Teil 3” ] ;

               bf:series [ a bf:Series ;

                              bf:seriesStatement “SPIE proceedings series, 0277-786X” ;

                              bf:seriesEnumeration “v. 2357” ] .

 

Multiple subseries would be handled in the same way, with bf:subseriesStatement and bf:subseriesEnumeration used in place of bf:seriesStatement and bf:seriesEnumeration.
