23 Help for Multiple Records / Multiple Formats: FRBR to the Rescue

24 FRBR: Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records Brings versions of works together in a cluster Shows relationships of various kinds Enables users to navigate to their level of interest Enables more sophisticated displays of search results

25 Where Is FRBR Most Useful? Literature classics Multiple formats Examples in WorldCat: –Stephen King –Shakespeare’s Hamlet –Rowling, J.K. (Harry Potter stories)

26 The Case of the Split Personality: Almanacs, Monographic Series, & Cumulations

27 Our Citation Reads: “The Ships & Aircraft of the U.S. Fleet” by Norman Polmar (13 th edition) This is a monographic series cataloged as both a monograph and as a serial A WorldCat search finds 40 records

28 The Monograph Record

29 The Serial Record

30 The Case of the Erudite Imposter: Incorrect Bibliographic Citations & Serial Linking Fields

31 Our Citation Reads: “The Ships & Aircraft of the U.S. Fleet” by Norman Polmar (16 th edition) A WorldCat search finds no records for the 16 th edition

32

33 16 th edition is included in this title The Actual Title

34 780 / 785 Linking Fields: The Key to Serial Title Changes 780=Former Title 785=Next Title

35 More Linking Fields The Case of the Elusive Eels: Supplements and Indexes

36 Supplements & Indexes Can Be Either Independent or Dependent Independent=has its own MARC record Dependent=Item is with the main title Also: Beware the English Language! “Index Medicus” is a title that happens to have the word “Index” in it, but is it really an Index as we think of it?

37 Our Citation Reads: “Variations in the Technical Standard for HDTV in the United States” by Chris Keary In: JEI, Journal of the Electronics Industry, (suppl. 1, 2000) A WorldCat search finds a record for “JEI, Journal of the Electronics Industry”

38

40 The Case of the Fraternal Twins: Same Title / Different Serial

41 Our Citation Reads: “Hell’s Bibliophiles: The 5 th Way of Looking at Aliteracy” by John G. Ramsay Change (Jan-Feb. 2002) A WorldCat search finds 3 serials with this title

42 Is this Our Change? Dates are incorrect

43 Is this Our Change? Dates indicate “possible” Subject heading indicates “maybe but unlikely”

44 Is This Our Change? Dates indicate “possible” Subject heading indicates “highly likely”

45 The Case of the Phantom Author or the Phantom Title

46 Our Citation Reads: “Proceedings 2003 Joint Conference on Digital Libraries” by CNI A WorldCat search finds no items with this author & title combination

47 An Authority File Search for CNI Reveals: Conference name in the citation Actual name of the conference

48 MARC Authority Record Tags 100 = 400= Correct form of author or conference name Incorrect or variant forms of the author or conference name
