Modeling Rare and Unique Documents: Using FRBR[subscript OO]/CIDOC CRM
Le Boeuf, Patrick
Journal of Archival Organization, v10 n2 p96-106 2012
Both the library and the museum communities have developed conceptual models for the information they produce about the collections they hold: FRBR (Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records) and CIDOC CRM (Conceptual Reference Model). But neither proves perfectly adequate when it comes to some specific types of rare and unique materials: manuscripts, hand-press resources, annotated copies of printed books, art prints, and ephemera and clippings files. However, a combination of these two models, named FRBR[subscript OO], solves the problem. The article examines in detail how each of these types of resources is modeled according to FRBR[subscript OO]. (Contains 14 notes and 5 figures.)
