      ACT I
      SCENE I. Elsinore. A platform before the castle.
      FRANCISCO at his post. Enter to him BERNARDO
      BERNARDO
      Who's there?
      FRANCISCO
      Nay, answer me: stand, and unfold yourself.
      BERNARDO
      Long live the king!
      FRANCISCO
      Bernardo?
      BERNARDO
      He.
      FRANCISCO
      You come most carefully upon your hour.
      BERNARDO
      'Tis now struck twelve; get thee to bed, Francisco.
      FRANCISCO
      For this relief much thanks: 'tis bitter cold,
      And I am sick at heart.
      BERNARDO
      Have you had quiet guard?
      FRANCISCO
      Not a mouse stirring.
      BERNARDO
      Well, good night.
      If you do meet Horatio and Marcellus,
      The rivals of my watch, bid them make haste.
      FRANCISCO
      I think I hear them. Stand, ho! Who's there?
      Enter HORATIO and MARCELLUS

      HORATIO
      Friends to this ground.
      MARCELLUS
      And liegemen to the Dane.
      FRANCISCO
      Give you good night.
      MARCELLUS
      O, farewell, honest soldier:
      Who hath relieved you?
      FRANCISCO
      Bernardo has my place.
      Give you good night.
      Exit

      MARCELLUS
      Holla! Bernardo!
      BERNARDO
      Say,
      What, is Horatio there?
      HORATIO
      A piece of him.
      BERNARDO
      Welcome, Horatio: welcome, good Marcellus.
      MARCELLUS
      What, has this thing appear'd again to-night?
      BERNARDO
      I have seen nothing.
      MARCELLUS
      Horatio says 'tis but our fantasy,
      And will not let belief take hold of him
      Touching this dreaded sight, twice seen of us:
      Therefore I have entreated him along
      With us to watch the minutes of this night;
      That if again this apparition come,
      He may approve our eyes and speak to it.
      HORATIO
      Tush, tush, 'twill not appear.
      BERNARDO
      Sit down awhile;
      And let us once again assail your ears,
      That are so fortified against our story
      What we have two nights seen.
      HORATIO
      Well, sit we down,
      And let us hear Bernardo speak of this.
      BERNARDO
      Last night of all,
      When yond same star that's westward from the pole
      Had made his course to illume that part of heaven
      Where now it burns, Marcellus and myself,
      The bell then beating one,--
      Enter Ghost

      MARCELLUS
      Peace, break thee off; look, where it comes again!
      BERNARDO
      In the same figure, like the king that's dead.
      MARCELLUS
      Thou art a scholar; speak to it, Horatio.
      BERNARDO
      Looks it not like the king? mark it, Horatio.
      HORATIO
      Most like: it harrows me with fear and wonder.
      BERNARDO
      It would be spoke to.
      MARCELLUS
      Question it, Horatio.
      HORATIO
      What art thou that usurp'st this time of night,
      Together with that fair and warlike form
      In which the majesty of buried Denmark
      Did sometimes march? by heaven I charge thee, speak!
      MARCELLUS
      It is offended.
      BERNARDO
      See, it stalks away!
      HORATIO
      Stay! speak, speak! I charge thee, speak!
      Exit Ghost

  • AustLit's Data Model

    AustLit employs a range of data models to manage information on Australian literature resources, regardless of format, and to facilitate discovery of those resources. We have implemented the International Federation for Library Associations and Institutions' Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records (FRBR) model to describe literary and creative works.

    Rather than treat each publication as a separate entity, as standard library cataloguing does, the FRBR model represents the publication history of works by incorporating the following four concepts into a single record:

    • Work
    • Expression
    • Manifestation
    • Item

  • What the concepts mean

    Work

    An abstract concept, for example, the novel Voss by Patrick White. AustLit uses the term work to represent this concept.

    Expression

    How a work is realised, for example, Patrick White's original version of Voss in English, or the German translation of Voss by John Stickforth. AustLit uses the term version to represent the expression concept.

    Manifestation

    How an expression is made concrete, for example, the 1958 Kiepenheuer & Witsch publication of Stickforth's translation of the novel Voss by Patrick White. AustLit uses the term publication to represent the manifestation concept.

    Item

    An individual item on a library shelf, for example, the physical copy of the 1958 Kiepenheuer & Witsch publication of the John Stickworth translation of the novel Voss by Patrick White, held in a specific library. AustLit does not directly record Items. Users can discover the location of particular items through AustLit's holdings link with The National Bibliographic Database.

    The relationships between these concepts can be 'one-to-one', or 'one-to-many', namely:

    — Works can be expressed in one or more than one versions

    — Expressions can be published (manifested) once or many times

    — Publications (manifestations) can result in one or several items

  • Event Modelling

    AustLit augments the FRBR model with 'event modelling', based on work undertaken by the ABC Harmony, and INDECS groups.

    Works have a Creation event, such as when an author writes a novel.

    Expressions have a Realisation event, which relates to the version, for example, the authorised English text. When a work is translated into another language, this results in a new expression.

    Manifestations have a Manifestation event, when the work is published in one or more versions.

     



    Attributes

    Works, Expressions and Manifestations all have attributes, and Creation, Realisation and Manifestation events all have attributes. Works, for example, can have subject attributes –- they can be about things –- and work creation events can have creators, places, and dates of creation as attributes.

    Works can also have relationships. They can be the subjects of works, or they can influence other works or other writers.

  • Agents (Authors, Organisations and Others)

    AustLit treats all organisations, and all people, including authors, as Agents. Like Works, Expressions and Manifestations, Agents can have attributes, such as names, including alternative writing names, gender, nationality, cultural heritage, and personal awards.

    Agents can be associated with events, which themselves have attributes. All will have birth and, eventually, death events, with date and place attributes. They will also be associated with creation, realisation and manifestation events, with all the attributes which Works, Expressions and Manifestations can 'own'.

    Agents can also have relationships: they can be the subjects of works, or they can influence other writers or other works.

    Further information on the AustLit Data Model is available on the AustLit Development Site. Further information on the definitions of work and agent attributes and events is available via the AustLit Maintainers' Manual.

     

    AustLit and Metadata

    Metadata is information in a structured format that describes a resource on the World Wide Web. The National Library of Australia provides information about metadata, the best known schema of which is probably Dublin Core.

    AustLit's data is encoded in XML (eXtensible Markup Language). This XML representation reflects AustLit's metadata schema, and contains enough information to generate alternative encodings such as MARC, or to augment AustLit's HTML with Dublin Core or Resource Description Framework (RDF) metadata.
