In this paper, we present an approach to automatically link FRBR works identified in metadata to the corresponding entity in Linked Open Data resources. The main contribution is a basis for semantic enrichment and verification of works identified in existing metadata. Through experiments, we demonstrate that FRBR works can be identified in the LOD cloud, which provides a solid ground for further work.
