A very basic representation of the FRBR Group 1, 2, and 3 entities and the relationships between them. This library is not intended to provide the actual bibliographic attributes of the entities, just establish model and the relationships. Everything is defined as a Module that you would mixin into some other object. A basic example: # Set up our bibliographic objects that we want to FRBR-ize class Story attr_accessor :title end class Book attr_accessor :language, format end class BookEdition attr_accessor :isbn, :date_published end class Person attr_accessor :name end story = Story.new story.title = "The Old Man and the Sea" story.extend(FRBR::Work) # these modules could also be included directly in the class person = Person.new person.name = "Ernest Hemingway" person.extend(FRBR::Person) story.add_creator(person) # or person.add_creation(story) book = Book.new book.language = 'English' book.format = 'text' book.extend(FRBR::Expression) book.realization_of(story) # or story.add_realization(book) edition = BookEdition.new edition.isbn = '0099273969' edition.date_published = '2000' edition.extend(FRBR::Manifestation) edition.embodiment_of(book) # or book.add_embodiment(edition)
