Jennifer Bowen has made a timely and significant contribution to understanding the practical applications of the Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records (FRBR ) in this carefully considered and superbly written article. She provides original insights supported by clear examples and sound logical arguments, in a readable style that makes it accessible to a broad audience.
