FRBR Catalog

Morbus Iff is working on a catalog based on FRBR, LibDB. He has been quite active lately on the FRBR mail-list. Here is his description of the project
An open-sourced Perl/MySQL library and asset management system based on and inspired by the Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records, triples from the semantic web, and "the end-user doesn't, and shouldn't, need to know this stuff". In English, this means that you'll be able to smartly and easily catalog your movies, books, magazines, comics, etc. into your own computerized "personal library".
If you would like to keep up with the project as it develops there is a wiki. The wiki does have a page of readings that is useful. Seen at Library Stuff.
