Hi Martin,

This sounds great. My congratulations to all those involved. 

Can this be disseminated? Is there a link that I can refer to and use on the ResearchSpace site and on RS Twitter to communicate these achievements?

Dear All,

We are happy to announce the endorsement of a new CRM-compatible model by the
IFLA FRBR Review Group. We will propose the corresponding endorsement by CIDOC.

At its meeting today August 17, 2014, the FRBR Review Group formally endorsed PRESSoo. Quoting from the longer statement (attached):
"The FRBR Review Group endorses PRESSo as a valid ontology that can be used to express the semantic relationships embedded in descriptions provided by libraries (i.e., bibliographic authority data) for continuing resources in a way that is fully compatible with FRBRoo."

IFLA has additional formal steps, new this summer, related to getting final endorsement as an "IFLA Standard", but the FRBR RG endorsement is the first step, and essentially is the step that endorses the domain content of the PRESSoo model.

The FRBR RG also accepted a similar statement of endorsement for FRBRoo version 2.0, and we will also be complying with the new steps for final approval of the updated version (FRBRoo version 1.o was considered approved under previous procedures).
