English abstract

The paper sets out from a few basic observations (bibliographic information is still mostly part of the ‘hidden Web,’ library automation methods still have a low WWW-transparency, and take-up of FRBR has been rather slow) and continues taking a closer look at Semantic Web technology components. This results in a proposal for implementing FRBR as RDF-Schema and of RDF-based library catalogues built on such an approach. The contribution concludes with a discussion of selected strategic benefits resulting from such an approach.
