The essay introduces the conceptual model IFLA LRM (Library Reference Model) in its fundamental features and highlights the innovative changes. In detail, it studies the main changes in the definition of entities, attributes and relationships described in the previous model of FRBR family. The paper underlines the original introduction of a hierarchy of the entities specified in the model to create data more appropriate for the semantic web, the theoretical new expressed by the attribute “manifestation statement” and the potential effect on library data and their re-use in a semantic web.
