AbstractThe Variations/FRBR project at Indiana University is experimenting with implementing the Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records (FRBR) conceptual model in order to further research on next-generation library catalogs and promote the re-usability and interoperability of FRBR-based metadata. This paper describes the use of FRBR in some system implementations, discusses the first steps our project has taken to promote shared FRBRized data, and raises some issues related to representing FRBRized data in Dublin Core Application Profiles.
