Understanding FRBR for RDA and Beyond (2 Day Live Online – PLAN)

This class, offered live online in two, two-hour sessions over two days will introduce and explore the Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records (or FRBR), a conceptual model of the “bibliographic universe.” Since the proposed next edition of the cataloging rules, Resource Description and Access (RDA), is based on FRBR’s ideas, knowledge of these ideas is necessary to understanding RDA. Aside from its relationship to RDA, FRBR has already influenced the display, navigation and use of bibliographic records in certain online catalogs. Practice and readings may be provided for participants to complete on their own.

May 4 & 5
