William Denton who runs the FRBR blog posted last week a very interesting news brief about vocabulary mappings from the DOI System.
From the FRBR Blog quoting the original announcement:
Work is under way to create an extensive and authoritative mapping of vocabularies from major content metadata standards, creating a downloadable tool to support interoperability across communities.
The work is an expansion of the existing RDA/ONIX Framework into a comprehensive vocabulary of resource relators and categories, which will be a superset of those used in major standards from the publisher/producer, education and bibliographic/heritage communities (CIDOC CRM; DCMI; DDEX; DOI; FRBR; MARC21; LOM; ONIX; RDA – see reference section below for details).
The resulting tool will be known as the Vocabulary Mapping Framework (VMF).
For anyone interested in metadata or RDA, this is definitely worth looking into. Thanks for brining this to our attention FRBR Blog!
