OLAC (Online Audiovisual Catalogers) is excited to announce the 
 availability of our prototype for a FRBR-inspired, work-centric, faceted 
 discovery interface for moving images at

 The OLAC Work-Centric Moving Image Discovery Interface Prototype is an 
 exploration of the possibilities of leveraging the Functional 
 Requirements for Bibliographic Records (FRBR) model and faceted search 
 to improve access to moving image materials held by libraries and 

 This prototype was funded by OLAC. Chris Fitzpatrick developed the 
 demonstration interface to meet OLAC’s specifications using the free 
 open source tools Ruby on Rails, Solr, and the Blacklight and Hydra 
 plug-ins. This project was only possible due to the contributions of a 
 great many people, some of whom are listed at

 In this demonstration interface we present the user with a two-level 
 view inspired by the FRBR model. The top level, labeled Movie or 
 Program, provides information about the FRBR Work and what we are 
 calling the Primary Expression, usually the first publicly-released 
 Expression. Facets for the Work/Primary Expression level are displayed 
 across the top of the screen and the records found in the hit list 
 contain information about the Work and Primary Expression. The second 
 level, labeled Version, includes information about Expressions (language 
 options), Manifestations (format and publication date), and in a very 
 basic way about Items (what libraries or archives hold a particular 
 Manifestation). Facets for the Version level are displayed separately on 
 the side of the screen and information about the particular Versions 
 that meet the user’s qualifications are displayed below each 
 Work/Primary Expression.

 An overview of the goals of the interface is available at Some suggested sample 
 searches and potential use cases may be seen at

 We invite you to check it out and send us your feedback. Comments, 
 questions, complaints, and suggestions may be sent to me at

 larger grant project to try to bring this idea into a production 
 environment, please contact me.
