Can anyone explain the relationship between IFLA LRM, BIBFRAME, and PREMIS?
From what I can tell, IFLA LRM is not actually a metadata schema. Rather,
it is just a list of top-level entities involved in a bibliographic
resource and how they are related to each other (e.g. a *work* has many
*expressions*, and an *expression* has one *work*).
BIBFRAME is an actual metadata schema containing elements like title,
author, etc. that describe the higher-level entities defined by IFLA LRM.
Except does it? BIBFRAME 2.0 was conceptualized in 2016, and the IFLA LRM
was published in December 2017. If I were to use BIBFRAME today to describe
a book, would that metadata be IFLA LRM-compliant?
My question about PREMIS is much the same. Is it compliant with IFLA LRM?
Furthermore, is it possible to catalog with PREMIS and BIBFRAME together?
For instance, if I have a BIBFRAME representation of a book at
www.mysite.com/mybook, can I use that URI as the PREMIS Object?
Maybe these are questions that are not fully answered yet because of the
lack of concrete BIBFRAME implementations.
