Medlane-XOBIS -- Discussion of the XOBIS information schema


About Medlane-XOBIS
English (USA)

XOBIS, the XML Organic Bibliographic Information Schema, is a reorganization of library and museum information that attempts to better integrate this information with information on the WWW. Unlike other schemas, XOBIS is neither a small subset of, nor a literal transliteration of, MARC (Machine Readable Cataloging). Rather XOBIS attempts to provide a high-fidelity, access-oriented markup language for library and museum data.
