While I might not want to find this under the tree, it is on my must read list. Understanding FRBR : what it is and how it will affect our retrieval tools

What is FRBR, and why is everyone talking about it? Is it really going to revolutionize cataloguing? And if so, what form will it take? Taylor and her compadres won't even try to teach you how to construct a hierarchical catalog record. Instead, their efforts are directed towards showcasing what's possible when digital technology and traditional cataloging practice meet. Serials, art, music, moving images, maps, and archival materials are just a few of the formats covered. Not for catalogers only.
