Very very very Cool, I will look at that closely and send you comments.


As I was doing a bit of research this night about it, I found this too.

It's an article “[Brave New FRBR World][1]”
     written by Patrick Le Bœuf
     Bibliothèque nationale de France

There's a section dedicated to “what is the status of digital/ 
digitised resources?” He's basically saying that for digitized  
*texts*, there's no clear way of dealing with them.

* Library of Congress (LoC):
     creates separate bibliographic records for a microform
     and its digitisation, then distinct manifestations.
* Bibliothèque Nationale de France (BNF):
     create one bibliographic record, then microform and
     its digitisation are only item entity.

Then he's citing a few models:

     [[[
     This lack of clear statement proved problematic for other
     models derived from FRBR and that remain more or less
     faithful to IFLA’s original model. Let us compare just
     three of  them: the Variations2 Data Model developed by
     the Indiana University (Bloomington) for digital libraries
     specialised in music (18); the SMART model (Sinica Metadata
     Architecture  and Research Task) developed by Taiwan’s
     Academia Sinica in Taipei (19); and Stephen L.  Abrams’
     Reference Model for Digital Library Objects, currently
     under development at  Harvard University (Cambridge, MA) (20).

* In the [Variations2 Data Model][2],
     a digitised object in a digital library is but an item
     of the manifestation the original object belongs to
     (like a microform at the Bibliothèque  nationale de France).
* In the [SMART model][3],
     a digitised object is a new manifestation of the work and
     expression embodied in the original manifestation (like
     a microform at the Library of Congress).
* In the [Harvard University reference model][4],
     a digital archival master is a new  expression of
     a graphic work, and it has a “surrogate for” relationship
     to the original expression (labelled: “analog”).

Maybe we have to define what's a photograph indeed and see how does  
it (or not) fit in FRBR model?
