Australia

This looks interesting, but a bit far from Texas.
Revolution or Evolution? The impact of FRBR (Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records).

Registrations are now open for the "Revolution or Evolution" seminar to be held from 1.00 to 5.00 pm on 2 February 2004 at the Melbourne Exhibition and Convention Centre. This seminar is being organised by the Australian Committee on Cataloguing as a professional development event for Australian cataloguers, metadata creators and system developers.

This seminar will provide an introduction to FRBR concepts and a description of Australian FRBR implementation and research projects. It will feature a keynote address by Barbara Tillett, Chief, Cataloging Policy and Support Office, Library of Congress. Marie-Louise Ayres from the National Library of Australia will discuss the implementation of FRBR concepts in the Austlit service and other projects. Bemal Rajapatirana from Kinetica will describe the National Library of Australia's research into the application of FRBR concepts within the National Bibliographic Database.
