Chair's report on CC:DA motions, July-December 2009:
[LC Report, June 2010 (20 min.)]
[Greek romanization table (10 min.)]
[Draft procedure for romanization proposals (10 min.)]
Traditional and contemporary attempts to identify and describe simple and complex bibliographic resources have overlooked useful and powerful possibilities, due to the insufficient modeling of bibliographic things of interest. The presentation will introduce a resource description approach that remodels and strengthens FRBR by borrowing key concepts from Information Science and the History of Science. The presentation will reveal portions of a network of bibliographic (and other useful) relationships between printings of Melvilles novel dating from 1851-1975 into the present. In addition, structural similarities between the print publication network and the multimedia mash-ups seen on YouTube and other websites will be demonstrated and discussed.
