The Scherzo music discovery system is one deliverable from the Variations/FRBR (V/FRBR) project at Indiana University (Riley, 2010). The objective of the V/FRBR project is to provide a real-world test of the Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records (FRBR) model (IFLA, 1998) in the domain of music. In addition to creating a schema and FRBRization algorithm to populate a repository with data drawn from MARC bibliographic records, one experiment in the utility of the FRBR model has been to create a discovery system based on the FRBRized data, to explore the value of exposing FRBR structuring in the discovery interface.
