Session ID: 193
Room: Dock 10

Tuesday, 22 August, 10:00 AM – 11:00 AM

The IFLA ISBD Review Group is planning a soft launch in 2023 of the ISBDM, that is the ISBD standard aligned to IFLA LRM conceptual model at the Manifestation Entity level, as a first step to a full implementation of LRM. This revision aligning the ISBD to LRM which overview was presented in a webinar in January 2023, is considered the first initiative to achieve complementarity, moreover integration, between IFLA bibliographic standards.

In this session, the developers of the ISBDM will present an ISBD reshaped to LRM, that is an ISBD that has completed its transformation into a modular, entity-based content standard, implementing and extending LRM, structure wise and modelling wise. The session also demonstrates the potential of delivering IFLA’s metadata standards as online toolkits taking the ISBDM as the first model of an IFLA bibliographic standard delivered as a toolkit.
