Abstract

The bibliographic universe is a complex network of interrelated instances of entity types and presentation of such networks to users is challenging. The paper discusses the complexity of these relationships through Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records (FRBR) conceptual model, presents possible scenarios for displaying them to users via information visualization and gives an account of the features we identified as difficult to implement within our first version of FrbrVis prototype.
