FRBR - Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records - is an evolving conceptual model designed to help users easily navigate catalogs and find the material they want in the form they want it - be that print, DVD, audio, or adaptations. Developed by the International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions Cataloging Section, FRBR is now being integrated into cataloging theory and implemented into systems and practice.Cataloging expert Maxwell offers clear concise explanations for every librarian interested in the next phase of access to their library's digital information. He answers such questions as: What is FRBR and how does it work? How will FRBR affect libraries? Do all librarians need to be concerned, or just those doing cataloging? How do authority records fit into the picture?With an understanding of the FRBR model, public and academic librarians, technical and public services librarians, and administrators can get a jump on this vital new cataloging technology to make catalogs more user-friendly.
