    Dracula in FRBR terms Dracula in FRBR terms Presentation Transcript

    • FRBR Group 1 entities
      A short PPT presentation explaining FRBR Group 1 entities using Bram Stoker’s Dracula.
    • What is FRBR?
      Stands for
      Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records
      FRBR was developed by the IFLA cataloging section to address issues in semantics and demonstrate relationship between and among materials (Group 1), creators of works (Group 2), and subjects (Group 3).
      FRBR is organized into groups which have entities that possess attributes.
      Group 1 entities are work, expression, manifestation, and item.
      Group 2 entities are persons or corporate bodies.
      Group 3 entities are the subjects of works and can be concepts, objects, events, or places.

    • Group 1 entities
      Group 1 entities:
      Work - is that abstract idea, or distinct intellectual creation.
      Expression - is the fulfillment of that idea through words, sound, image, etc.
      Manifestation - is the physical embodiment of the expression.
      Item – is the actual copy of the manifestation that expression takes.
      This presentation will explain the relationship and structure of FRBR Group 1 entities through an example.
    • I choose…
      Written by Bram Stoker in 1897 and published in English by Archibald Constable and Company (UK).
      It has been reprinted, translated, annotated, adapted, turned into a musical and made into a movie.
      In the United States, Stoker was not able to properly copyright the work, so that it entered the public domain at the time of its publication. In the UK, it has been in the public domain since 1962.
      So, imagine how many editions is out there since its maiden publication. It is therefore the perfect choice to illustrate the relationship and structure of FRBR Group 1 entities.

    • Work
      In FRBR terms, Dracula, that
      abstract thing, idea, or literary
      creation that sprung from the
      mind of Bram Stoker is a work.
      Written by Bram Stoker in 1897 and published in English by Archibald Constable and Company (UK).
      Dracula is an epistolary and gothic novel about a Transylvanian Count and vampire moving to London and terrorizing the relations of the Englishman, Jonathan Harker, whom he lured and imprisoned in his castle. Harker will later on escape and team up with friends wronged by Dracula, as well as, Van Helsing, doctor and vampire slayer, to stop the menace of Count Dracula.
      Dracula has become the classic of vampire and gothic literature and also a novel that shows the battle of ideas between tradition and modernity.

    • Same Work, New Work
      Reprints, exact reproduction copies, facsimiles,
      translations, revisions, editions, illustrated editions,
      and abridged editions of the original text of Dracula
      by Bram Stoker are considered belonging to the
      same work.
      Change of genre, parodies, annotated
      editions, adaptations, reviews, evaluations,
      criticism and dramatizations of Dracula are
      considered as a new work.
      The 1992 movie, Bram Stoker’s Dracula directed by
      Francis Ford Coppola in FRBR terms is a new work
      since it is an adaptation of the original novel.

    • Expressions
      In FRBR terms, the first
      edition published in 1897 of
      Dracula is a realization of the
      idea or the expressionof the
      Reprints, microform reproductions, exact
      reproductions, and facsimiles are the same
      expression of the same work.

    • Translations
      A translation into Spanish by
      Diana Gibson is a
      new expression of the
      same work.
      Translations are just different expressions,
      through a change in the intellectual technique,
      of the same content.
      In this example, from English to Spanish.

    • Foreword added
      An edition, with a foreword
      by Elizabeth Kostova added,
      is a new expression of the
      same work.
      It is a new expression because of the addition
      of a foreword, but it is still the same work because
      it does not significantly alter the content of the work.

    • Illustrated edition
      In FRBR terms, if illustrations
      are added, like this edition
      illustrated by James Pyman, then
      it is a new expression of the same
      work, since there is an addition to the
      content but the main focus is still the
      written work.
      This edition is described as going back to the original text
      with 27 illustrations added, coming from a line or a phrase
      from each of the 27 chapters.

    • From written to spoken word
      An unabridged reading
      from the original 1897 text
      and narrated by Alexander
      Spencer and Susan Adams is a
      new expression of the same work.
      It is a new expression since it is just another realization
      of the same work. Only the intellectual technique changed
      from the written word to spoken word.

    • Manifestations
      Manifestations are the physical embodiment of an expression of a work.
      The physical book of the various hardcover and paperback editions of Dracula are different manifestations of the same work.
      Published by Rider & Co in 1927
      Published by DoubleDay in 1921
      Paperback ed. by Penguin Books in 1997
      Published by Wessels Co in 1901.

    • More Manifestations
      The Kindle edition e-book file
      of Dracula being sold by
      Amazon.com is a
      new manifestation of the
      same work.
      The physical embodiment or
      the form of the expression of a work.
      It can be a book, an electronic file,
      a cassette tape, or a CD.

    • Summing up
      FRBR offers a fresh perspective on structures
      and relationships of bibliographic
      and authority records.
      Applying FRBR Group 1 entities we are able to
      show the inherent relationships and hierarchy of
      work, expression, manifestation, and item.
      Work is that abstract and creative idea that is
      realized through expression embodied in a
      manifestation and exemplified by an item.
