Deng, S. (2011). FRBR Training. Training session to the Technical Services Department, Wichita State University Libraries. Wichita, KS, Sept. 20, 2011.
This presentation introduces “Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records” (FRBR), a conceptual model the new cataloging standard “Resource Description and Access” (RDA) is built on. It gives a detailed explanation to the entities, relationships and attributes defined in the model. It is designed with many examples, images and diagrams to be visually appealing and easier to understand. It also discusses the new perspective FRBR utilizes: emphasizing “user tasks” of finding, identifying, selecting and obtaining entities by mapping attributes and relationships to these tasks, with the same objective of finding and collocating information in a bibliographic universe. At the end, it shows several cases of FRBR implementation and “FRBR-ized” display.
This is the second of a series of RDA training sessions at WSU Libraries.
