The much-discussed Bibliographic Framework Initiative data model is under development, and institutions have already begun testing. Its goal is to increase the flexibility, visibility and discoverability of all resources. This paper explores research & development activities in international collaboration with over 12 institutions, analysing the implications and challenges, e.g., the development of entity identification procedures. Ultimately, the availability of collection data to a wider audience ensures the safeguarding of cultural heritage. Feedback from the international library community is discussed, problems highlighted and evidence upon which to resolve them is provided. The model embraces innovation in technology and knowledge representation.
