FRAR: Extending FRBR Concepts to Authority Data

FRAR: Extending FRBR Concepts to Authority Data by Glenn E. Patton is now available.
The IFLA FRANAR Working Group is charged with extending the concepts of the IFLA Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records to authority data. The paper reports on the current state of the Working Group's activities.
Seen on the FRBR weblog. Note, the acronym has changed from FRANAR to FRAR.

I'd like to clarify some of the acronym confusion. The IFLA Working Group on Functional Requirements and Numbering of Authority Records is still alive and well and using the acronym, FRANAR. The group's draft Functional Requirements for Authority Records is becoming know by the acronym, FRAR, to be parallel to the Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records (FRBR).

As is indicated in the Introduction to FRAR, the group intends to produce a separate document that will deal with the numbering aspects of its charge.
