Significance for science
Libraries are facing stiff competition from other information providers that may not always have the quality of information that libraries provide but are more aware of importance of presentation of the information to the public. Since catalogues are increasingly the first and in some cases the only form of communication between a library and its users, it is important that the information provided by the library is clear and intuitive. FRBR has generated much interest in library circles not only for its theoretical contributions to the field but also through its first (partial) implementation in practice. Perhaps the most telling sign of importance of a conceptual model of the bibliographic universe has been the research into the matters by all of the leading players in library world, including OCLC and Library of Congress. The proposed research will provide the first real verification of FRBR as the user-centred conceptual model; the research that has been called for by the Library of Congress Working Group on Bibliographic Control (http://www.loc.gov/bibliographic-future/meetings/docs/bibfuture-report-nov13-2007.ppt). The design of the new implementation will be an important step forward in provision of bibliographic information to end-users. Our research is on the cutting edge in the international environment in several topics: • elicitation and analysis of mental models as user verification of the conceptual model • analysis of concept schemes using graph theory • frbrisation of existing records with novel algorithms • visualisation of bibliographic data • modelling of aboutness • development of new formats for bibliographic data Our results will on one hand bring a significant theoretical contribution to better understanding of users and use of bibliographic information systems, user information behaviour and integration of bibliographic data into the Semantic Web environment. The applied part brings concrete solutions, such as the visualisation prototype, which are directly applicable in the development of bibliographic information systems.
Significance for the country
The results of our research could be directly used in Slovenia in the development of COBISS, but unfortunately IZUM has not (so far) expressed any interest in cooperation. Due to the specific situation, there are no possible users in the real sector of Slovenian economy. The pilot application of the visualised bibliographic data will be implemented as part of the Digital library of Slovenia (dLib), developed by the National and University Library of Slovenia.o The imprtance of our research for Sovenia is also indirect: with cooperation in international working groups, international exchange of doctoral students, visiting lectures and highly visible publications result in promotion of Slovenia.
