FRBR

The paper "Mature consideration: developing bibliographic standards and maintaining values" by Alan Danskin appears in New Library World v. 105, no 3/4.
This article considers the impact of the IFLA Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records (FRBR), the implications of FRBR for cataloguing and the impact of FRBR on MARC and the Anglo-American Cataloguing Rules (AACR). The article also considers the effects of FRBR on the Paris Principles, in the context of the proposed International Cataloguing Code (ICC). It stresses the importance of maintaining a clear statement of principles and values.
