Question:

What does the WEMI acronym mean in library science?

Inactive
Laura H.
Answer:

WEMI, or Work, Expression, Manifestation, and Item, are the group 1 entities in the International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions (IFLA)'s Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records (FRBR) model. This is the foundation of RDA cataloging. A 'work' can be conceived as an abstract conceptualization of a resource, in the creator's imagination. The 'expression' is the mode of transport of this idea, such as oral transmission or an English translation. The 'manifestation' might be a particular publication by a certain press. The 'item' can be conceived of as the actual book, held by a particular library which might have notes in the margins or an inscription.

Question:

What are some common themes explored within Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte?

Answer:

Some themes explored within Jane Eyre include independence and equality in gender roles. These themes can be seen in Jane's attitude towards joining with Rochester. She asserted her independence throughout the book, first working as a governess in Rochester's home. When Rochester is found to already have a wife even as he performed romantic overtures for Jane, Jane asserts her autonomy by rejecting his proposal. When another suitor makes overtures, she rejects him as well. It is only after she asserts her complete autonomy that she is able to accept the proposal of Rochester, and they are able to join as equals.

Question:

What are some key aspects of Friedensreich Hundertwasser's aesthetic philosophy?

Inactive

Answer:

At the root of Hundertwasser's works there is an emphasis on irregularity. He believed that the curves and currents of nature should be echoed in all manmade creations; without these organic incongruences man becomes too far removed from his true, natural self. Hundertwasser wrote in his manifestos that straight lines were the devil, and square rulers the devil's tools. He believed that by creating forms which are wholly derived from the use of straight lines, as opposed to the undulating surfaces created by nature's forces, mankind is contributing to its own destruction by further removing itself from the harmony found within the natural world.
