8 FRBR model (1998) - the short version ER : Entities, attributes, Relations entities: of which there are ten, divided in three groups: Group 1: works, expressions of the works, manifestations of the expression (documents), and items (copies) of the manifestations. Works and expressions are abstract. Manifestations and items relate to physical publications. Group 2: responsibility entities - persons and corporate bodies. Group 3: subject entities - concepts, places, events and objects. The other entities might also appear as subject entities. attributes: the entities are described through their attributes. Some examples: a person has a name and birth date; a work has a title; a manifestation has a date of publication and an identification number (e.g. ISBN); an item (copy) has a call number. relations: are defined as links or references between the entities. A work is created by a person. It is a relation between the work and the author of the work.
