Scope and objectives (2.1)

“The FRBR-Library Reference Model aims to be a high-level conceptual reference model developed within an entity-relationship modeling framework. The model covers bibliographic data as understood in a broad, general sense.”

“The model aims to uncover general principles behind the logical structure of bibliographic information, without making any presuppositions about how that data might be stored in any particular system or application. As a result, the model does not make a distinction between data traditionally stored in bibliographic or holdings records and data traditionally stored in name or subject authority records. For the purposes of the model, all of this data is included under the term bibliographic information and all such data is within the scope of the model.” p. 5
