FRBR, FRAD and FRSAD: A New Model for Cataloging (SEFLIN)

This two hour online program will provide an overview of the FRBR model, as well as an overview of the related FRAD and FRSAD models.

FRBR (Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records) was developed by IFLA (International Federation of Library Associations) to provide a new way of thinking about bibliographic description and access based on what users want and need. FRAD (Functional Requirements for Authority Data) and FRSAD (Functional Requirements for Subject Authority Data) were developed as a continuation of the FRBR work to consider name and subject authority data. RDA, the new cataloging standard intended to replace AACR2, incorporates the FRBR model. Attendees of this class will acquire an understanding of the FRBR model that will help them understand the principles underlying RDA.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Basic principles of FRBR
  • Basic principles of FRAD and FRSAD

Presented by: Christee Pascale, Lyrasis
