A FRBR-based prototype for fiction in WorldCat

In the FictionFinder prototype, records are indexed at the work level and displays are organized by work and expression. A key feature of our approach is the aggregation at the work and expression levels of selected elements from records within a given cluster. For example, elements that are potentially useful in finding and selecting a work of fiction, such as  summaries,  genre terms, and  subject headings, are extracted from individual bibliographic records, filtered, indexed, and presented at the work level.

We are a worldwide library cooperative, owned, governed and sustained by members since 1967. Our public purpose is a statement of commitment to each other—that we will work together to improve access to the information held in libraries around the globe, and find ways to reduce costs for libraries through collaboration.
