about this item

Coyle, a librarian, examines how the Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records (FRBR) bibliographic model treats bibliographic description and how it reflects technology and the goals of libraries. She argues for the need for a more integrative approach to bibliographic models and discusses the concept of the “work” in library cataloging theory and how it has evolved; the history of data models and library data models; the evolution of library catalog technology; the new FRBR bibliographic model and the technical and social goals of the FRBR Study Group; FRBR entities; issues that arise in FRBR; and FRBR compared to semantic web vocabularies that are variants of the multi-entity bibliographic model that FRBR introduced.
