FRBR as a Foundation for RDA
This covers the basics of FRBR, including its development and contents. Participants will leave the session with an understanding of the entity-relationship model on which FRBR is based, the FRBR entities and relationships, and the FRBR user tasks. The webcast addresses, through an exploration of RDA itself, how FRBR lies at the foundation of RDA’s structure, and what implications that might have on future database structures for our catalog descriptions.
