Projects and Initiatives
IFLA Library Reference Model (LRM) is a high-level conceptual reference model developed within an entity-relationship modelling framework. It is the consolidation of the separately developed IFLA conceptual models: FRBR, FRAD, FRSAD.
IFLA LRM was developed to resolve inconsistencies between the three separate models.
The LRMoo model brings the IFLA LRM into the CIDOC Conceptual Reference Model (CRM) family of models by providing an object-oriented version of the model that is designed as an extension to CIDOC CRM.
