English abstract

We discuss some criticism that FRBR has received concerning the entity Work. The main problem refers to the lack in FRBR of a conceptualization for attributes of Work. Both FRBR models, FRBRer and FRBRoo are analized considering, in the first case, the way attributes of work are treated, and the sub classification of class F1 Work in the second case. In the first case the analysis shows that FRBRer, although presenting a new conception of main bibliographic entities, has the weakness of being closely dependent on MARC format when treating other entities. In the second case, the dependency of multiple inheritance, derived from the model which FRBRoo tries to integrate, CRM and an abstract conception of object modeling -which neglected the concrete uses of bibliographic entities- leads to a complicate model, which has proved to be difficult to understand, implement and use. The proposed alternative, which is part of an object oriented model, is to conceive concrete bibliographic entities as subclasses of abstract classes for WEMI entities.
