A Tool for Converting from MARC to FRBR

  title={A Tool for Converting from MARC to FRBR},
  author={Trond Aalberg and Frank Berg Haugen and Ole Husby},
The FRBR model is by many considered to be an important contribution to the next generation of bibliographic catalogues, but a major challenge for the library community is how to use this model on already existing MARC-based bibliographic catalogues. This problem requires a solution for the interpretation and conversion of MARC records, and a tool for this kind of conversion is developed as a part of the Norwegian BIBSYS FRBR project. The tool is based on a systematic approach to the…

Improving the presentation of library data using FRBR and Linked data
The Pode project has applied a method of automated FRBRizing based on the information contained in MARC records to demonstrate how an author’s complete production can be presented as a short and lucid list of unique works, which can easily be browsed by their different expressions and manifestations.
Meta-Composer: Synthesizing Online FRBR Works from Library Resources
This work presents the implementation and use of alternative clustering algorithms and similarity metrics for the composition of the FRBR work entities in the configurable meta-search engine meta-Composer and introduces a tool for the evaluation of the composition methods.
FRBRization: using UNIMARC link fields to identify Works
The main focus is to examine the possibility of using the UNIMARC link fields in order to identify the Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records (FRBR) Work entities and suggest that all records linked with 45X fields may belong to the same Work with the record which contains these fields.
Representing and integrating bibliographic information into the Semantic Web: A comparison of four conceptual models
This paper aims to investigate common ground and convergences between four conceptual models, namely Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records (FRBR), FRBR Object-Oriented, Bibliography Framework (BIBFRAME) and Europeana Data Model (EDM), enabling semantically-richer interoperability by studying the representation of monographs.

The results of this study provide a list of the most critical issues, based on importance ratings and group consensus, for future FRBR research and practice in each FRBR area.


Automatic Conversion from MARC to FRBR
Although there are numerous ”dialects” of the MARC format in use, they are usually crafted on the same basis and are interoperable with each other —to a certain extent.
