9. A ‘book’ exists at different levels of interest. FRBR – Functional Requirements of Bibliographic Records – models these levels of interest.

11. Group 1 entities Work: A distinct intellectual or artistic creation. Expression: The intellectual or artistic realization of a work. Manifestation: The physical embodiment of an expression of a work. Item: A single exemplar of a manifestation. Work: A distinct intellectual or artistic creation.

14. Some numbers based on WorldCat, the world’s most complete bibliographic database

15. Worldcat There are 59.9 million manifestations in WorldCat; these manifestations are associated with (or can be rolled up into) 47.4 million distinct works. There are 35.3 million print book manifestations in WorldCat; these manifestations are associated with (or can be rolled up into) 28.5 million distinct works. Or put another way, 28.5 million works have at least one print book manifestation. So the majority of works in WorldCat are manifested as a print book.

29. Credits Brian Lavoie ran the WorldCat numbers for me. Diane Vizine-Goetz and her colleagues developed FictionFinder and she pulled the titles for slide 13. Slides 18 and 19 are based on FictionFinder counts. I have drawn on the presentations by my colleagues Diane Vizine-Goetz, Thom Hickey, Eric Childress, Ed O’Neill listed above which collectively provide a very nice overview of FRBR from both theoretical and implementation perspectives. Thom and Jenny Toves developed the OCLC work-set algorithm. William Denton (www.frbr.org) kindly let me use the figure on slide 9.
