The Variations/FRBR  project at Indiana University has released bulk downloads of metadata for the sound recordings presented in our Scherzo  music discovery system in a FRBRized XML format. The downloadable data includes FRBR Work, Expression, Manifestation, Person, and Corporate Body records, along with the structural and responsibility relationships connecting them. While this is still an incomplete representation of FRBR and FRAD, we hope that the release of this data will aid others that are studying or working with FRBR. This XML data conforms to the "efrbr" set of XML Schemas  created for this project. The XML data may be downloaded from <http://vfrbr.info/data/1.0/index.shtml>, and comments/questions may be directed to [log in to unmask]
One caveat to those who seek to use this data: we plan to continue improving our FRBRization algorithm into the future and have not yet implemented a way to keep entity identifiers consistent between new data loads. Therefore we cannot at this time guarantee the Work with the identifier http://vfrbr.info/work/30001, for example, will have the same identifier in the future. Therefore this data at this time should be considered highly experimental.
Many thanks to the Institute of Museum and Library Services for funding the V/FRBR project.
