What is FRBR?

This 8 pages pamphlet written by Barbara Tillett provides a brief overview of the Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records (FRBR) as developed by the International Federation of Library Associations (IFLA). Cataloger and librarians in general may find this pamphlet instructional/informative in our initial understanding of this concept which will replace the ACCR2.

The publication outlines the background of the development of the Functional Requirements, the concepts involved and their potential impact on cataloging rules, bibliographic structures and systems design for cataloging applications.
