Bibliotek-o is an ontology recommendation for modeling bibliographic metadata. It includes:

  • The bibliotek-o extension ontology, which defines additions and modifications to BIBFRAME 2 and is intended to be used as a supplement to the core BIBFRAME 2 ontology.
  • A set of ontology fragments (including BIBFRAME 2) intended for use with the bibliotek-o extension.
  • A set of models and patterns - i.e., an application profile - documenting the intended use of the preceding.

A high-level schematic representation of the bibliotek-o recommendation is shown below.
