Why FRBR matters Based on relational database models Emphasizes relationships between data elements Exploits possibilities for search and retrieval in relational databases Better serves user’s needs to find and retrieve items
What is FRBR? An entity-relationship model that describes the world in terms of entities and the relationships between them
FRBR Entities Group 1 (creations) Group 2 (creators) Group 3 (subjects) Work Expression Manifestation Item Persons Corporate Bodies Group 1 or 2 Entities Concept Object Event Place
Relationships Relationships are the associations between FRBR entities
Attributes Attributes are characteristics of entities; in RDA these are called “elements” elements = attributes Attributes of a manifestation Title of the manifestation Edition Place of publication Publisher Date of publication, etc.
Manifestation Work Expression Item is realized through is embodied in is exemplified by  IFLA Study Group on the Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records, Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records: Final Report, 1997, (20 March 2005) p.13.http://www.ifla.org/VII/s13/frbr/frbr.pdf FRBR Model “WEMI” Intellectual/Artistic Content Physical-Recording of content
RDA and FRBR Joint Steering Committee on AACR2 released a new version: R(esource) D(escription) and A(ccess) Based on FRBR Organized by FRBR elements (work, expression, manifestation, item) and not form of resource (book, ebook, map, sound recording, etc.) ISBD punctuation is allowed but not mandatory Timeline: ◦ RDA released in beta form in June 2010 or thereabouts ◦ Test libraries, including LOC, NLM, NAL and other volunteers trained on RDA from June-September 2010 ◦ October 1 test libraries began using RDA to produce records in OCLC ◦ December 31 test ended ◦ January 1, 2011-March 31 the RDA test coordinating committee evaluated results of the test and published its findings
ALA Annual Meeting 2011 announcement that RDA would be “reworded” for clarity RDA would be implemented in 2013 2 March 2012, LC announces it will implement RDA beginning 31 March, 2013. The National Library of Medicine, National Agriculture Library, Library and Archives Canada, British Library, and the National Library of Australia agree to implement as well. The Deutsche Nationalbibliothek will adopt slightly later. 31 March 2013, RDA is adopted as planned
RDA Content schema ◦ Doesn’t tell you HOW to display bibliographic data, but tells you what should be in there Not an encoding standard ◦ Schema neutral MARC Dublin Core XML Based on FRBR (Fundamental Requirements for Bibliographic Records)
Structure of RDA Organized by user tasks and goals, rather than kind of material Follows WEMI Has “core” elements, which are attributes (“elements” in RDA) required for an acceptable national-level cataloging record ◦ Defined at the element level Always CORE ELEMENT “Core if” – contingency described Core elements listed as a group in RDA 0.6 and separately in each chapter
Alternatives, options, and exceptions are set off by a green bar These are not required
Library of Congress Policy Statements (LCPS) ◦ Facilitate uniform interpretation and application of the rules ◦ LC catalogers are required to follow these ◦ Cataloging agencies are not required to follow the LCPSs, but many/most probably will
RDA examples Illustrate the specific instruction under which they appear Don’t give/show punctuation Illustrate elements as they would be recorded by an English-speaking cataloger Appear in yellow shading (shading is really hard to see!)
Major Changes in RDA No abbreviations ◦ spell out pages, illustrations, leaves, volume, etc. ◦ continue to use “cm” and “in.” ◦ some abbreviations still used for states and territories, see Appendix Each element gets its own brackets 264 _1 [New York] : $b [Doubleday], $c  Do not use Latin phrases ◦ ca. approximately ◦ S.l. place of … not known ◦ s.n. name of … not known ◦ fl. active ◦ et al. [and … others]
ISBD punctuation and capitalization is optional NO GMD ◦ Replaced by a series of 3xx fields content (RDA 18.104.22.168) media (RDA 22.214.171.124) carrier (RDA 126.96.36.199) ◦ Macro in OCLC for inserting 245 $h [videorecording] 336two-dimensional moving image $b tdi $2 rdacontent 337video $b v $2 rdamedia 338videodisc $b vd $2 rdacarrier
