The BIBFRAME Vocabulary is comprised of the RDF properties, classes, and relationships between and among them. The three available vocabulary views are described below.

Model View

Using the BIBFRAME model as a starting point, enter the vocabulary through the major framing classes, drilling down into associated properties. Each class view includes properties inherited from Resource, any parent class, specific properties for the class, as well as additional specific subclasses.

Category View

List View

This single-page view presents the entire vocabulary on one page with an ordered list of classes and properties, followed by more detailed information about each. Links are internal to the page, and the browser back button can reverse your navigation on the page.

All the views are different displays derived from the master rdf file (http://bibframe.org/vocab.rdf), which is available for download.  A broad-brush view of the properties and their MARC equivalent (if any) will be available soon.
