    Program details: 

    The Open WEMI Idea 

    Karen Coyle 

    The concepts first introduced in the FRBR document and known as "WEMI" (Work, Expression, Manifestation, Item) have been employed in situations quite different from the library bibliographic catalog. This is evidence that a definition of similar classes that are more general than those developed for library usage would benefit metadata developers broadly. A Dublin Core community group has been formed to look at the possibility of creating a minimally constrained vocabulary to support the creation of metadata for the description of all kinds of created "things".
