bibliotek-o is an ontology framework for modeling bibliographic metadata. It includes:

  • The bibliotek-o extension ontology, which defines additions and modifications to BIBFRAME and is intended as a supplement to the core BIBFRAME ontology.
  • A set of ontology fragments (including BIBFRAME) intended for use with the bibliotek-o extension.
  • A data model and application profile - i.e., a set of recommended models and patterns for implementing BIBFRAME, bibliotek-o, and external ontologies.

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