In the world of library cataloging and metadata, the theoretical models and content standards used in resource description must accommodate a diverse body of materials, not just in terms of format (books, scores, recordings, etc.) but also in terms of the very nature of the intellectual or artistic content. Classical instrumental works, collaborative works with textual content, improvisations, adaptations, arrangements, events, field recordings, birdsongs… Library collections include all of these and more, necessitating cataloging guidelines and metadata structures that are inclusive of such diverse materials and responsive to the diverse user needs that accompany them. This session, sponsored by the Cataloging and Metadata Committee, will feature talks about modeling audiovisual content in BIBFRAME; extending BIBFRAME with elements from the Performed Music Ontology (PMO); and, working within FRBR/LRM and RDA to ensure suitable treatment of all sorts of music in the catalog.
