Experimentation with bf:Hub began (at LC) more than three years ago, first becoming instantiated publically in June 2019. Hubs, which are defined as a subclass of Work, are abstract resources that function as a bridge between two Works. In this way, they function as aggregation and collocation resources. They make it possible, for example, to gather all of the Spanish translations of Mark Twain’s Tom Sawyer or to capture in which other BF Works Francisco Tarrega’s Capricho árabe is included. In LC’s experimentation, Hubs perform three functions as aggregators: as subjects, as related works, and as Works in the RDA sense. Hubs, being BF Works, can be used as Subjects to describe other Works.

Expected/recommended changes:

  • bf:Hub - new class
    • Label: Hub
    • Definition: An abstract resource that functions as a bridge between two Works.
    • SubClassOf: Work

Regarding the definition of Hub--"An abstract resource that functions as a bridge between two Works," can we change it into two "or multiple" Works? It's common to have multiple expressions/works for a Hub.
