Abstract

The distinction between a creative work and the physical item that contains that work is clearly delineated in FRBR and other research by the Library Science community. A similar confusion exists in the scientific realm between the underlying scientific data and the digital objects that contain those data. We present a similarly scoped reference framework for sensor-based scientific data, drawing on the concepts in FRBR, and compare it with the application of FRBR for cataloging other non-book records.
