The Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records (FRBR) model provides a new way of defining relationships between bibliographic items, their creators, and their subjects. While it embodies the fundamental laws of cataloging and librarianship, it also offers ways to further develop and enrich existing catalogs. This full day workshop will provide participants with an introduction to FRBR concepts, descriptions of FRBR research, and a project implementing FRBR concepts, as well as the opportunity to hear from some of the leading experts in the field. Informative handouts will be provided.
