IFLA Study Group on the
Functional Requirements for
Bibliographic Records
[1]
Provides framework for:
• What the bibliographic record provides
information about
• What the record is expected to achieve in
terms of user needs
[1] IFLA Study Group on the Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records, Functional Requirements for
Bibliographic Records: Final Report, 1997, <http://www.ifla.org/VII/s13/frbr/frbr.pdf> (20 March 2005)
Why FRBR matters
Based on relational database models
 Emphasizes relationships between data
elements
 Exploits possibilities for search and
retrieval in relational databases
 Better serves user’s needs to find and
retrieve items

What is FRBR?
An entity-relationship
model that describes the
world in terms of entities
and the relationships
between them
User tasks:
 Find
 Identify
 Select
 Obtain
FRBR Entities
Group 1
(creations)
Work
Expression
Manifestation
Item
Group 2
(creators)
Persons
Corporate
Bodies
Group 3
(subjects)
Group 1 or 2
Entities
Concept
Object
Event
Place
Relationships

Relationships are the associations
between FRBR entities
Attributes
Attributes are characteristics of entities;
in RDA these are called “elements”
elements = attributes
Attributes of a manifestation
Title of the manifestation
Edition
Place of publication
Publisher
Date of publication, etc.

FRBR Model
“WEMI”
Work
is realized through
Intellectual/Artistic
Content
Physical-Recording
of content
Expression
is embodied in
Manifestation
is exemplified by
Item

RDA and FRBR
Joint Steering Committee on AACR2 released a new
version: R(esource) D(escription) and A(ccess)
 Based on FRBR
 Organized by FRBR elements (work, expression,
manifestation, item) and not form of resource (book,
ebook, map, sound recording, etc.)
 ISBD punctuation is allowed but not mandatory
 Timeline:

◦ RDA released in beta form in June 2010 or thereabouts
◦ Test libraries, including LOC, NLM, NAL and other volunteers
trained on RDA from June-September 2010
◦ October 1 test libraries began using RDA to produce records in
OCLC
◦ December 31 test ended
◦ January 1, 2011-March 31 the RDA test coordinating committee
evaluated results of the test and published its findings
ALA Annual Meeting 2011 announcement that
RDA would be “reworded” for clarity
 RDA would be implemented in 2013
 2 March 2012, LC announces it will implement
RDA beginning 31 March, 2013. The National
Library of Medicine, National Agriculture
Library, Library and Archives Canada, British
Library, and the National Library of Australia
agree to implement as well. The Deutsche
Nationalbibliothek will adopt slightly later.
 31 March 2013, RDA is adopted as planned

RDA

Content schema
◦ Doesn’t tell you HOW to display bibliographic
data, but tells you what should be in there

Not an encoding standard
◦ Schema neutral
 MARC
 Dublin Core
 XML

Based on FRBR (Fundamental
Requirements for Bibliographic Records)
Structure of RDA
Organized by user tasks and goals, rather
than kind of material
 Follows WEMI
 Has “core” elements, which are attributes
(“elements” in RDA) required for an
acceptable national-level cataloging record

◦ Defined at the element level
 Always CORE ELEMENT
 “Core if” – contingency described

Core elements listed as a group in RDA
0.6 and separately in each chapter
Alternatives, options, and exceptions are
set off by a green bar
 These are not required


Library of Congress Policy Statements
(LCPS)
◦ Facilitate uniform interpretation and
application of the rules
◦ LC catalogers are required to follow these
◦ Cataloging agencies are not required to follow
the LCPSs, but many/most probably will
RDA examples
 Illustrate the specific instruction under
which they appear
 Don’t give/show punctuation
 Illustrate elements as they would be
recorded by an English-speaking cataloger
 Appear in yellow shading (shading is really
hard to see!)

Major Changes in RDA

No abbreviations
◦ spell out pages, illustrations, leaves, volume, etc.
◦ continue to use “cm” and “in.”
◦ some abbreviations still used for states and territories,
see Appendix

Each element gets its own brackets
264 _1 [New York] : $b [Doubleday], $c [1994]

Do not use Latin phrases
◦
◦
◦
◦
◦
ca.  approximately
S.l.  place of … not known
s.n.  name of … not known
fl.  active
et al.  [and … others]
ISBD punctuation and capitalization is
optional
 NO GMD

◦ Replaced by a series of 3xx fields
 content (RDA 6.9.1.3)
 media (RDA 3.2.1.3)
 carrier (RDA 3.3.1.3)
◦ Macro in OCLC for inserting
245 $h [videorecording]
336 two-dimensional moving image $b tdi $2
rdacontent
337 video $b v $2 rdamedia
338 videodisc $b vd $2 rdacarrier
“Take what you see and accept what you get.”
DESCRIPTION
Fixed fields and 0xx



For RDA records, 008 Desc should be i for RDA
records using ISBD punctuation, blank for RDA records
not using ISBD punctuation
DtSt s for single date, t if using 264
prod/pub/dist/manufacture date and a ©date in 264 4
040: add $e rda after subfield $b
245/246

Title proper is core in RDA
May use ISBD punctuation and capitalization rules but
not required
Transcribe punctuation that conflicts with ISBD
punctuation as is
If elected…
AACR2: If elected- RDA: If elected…
First word of title proper should be capitalized; other
capitalization may follow Appendix A (sentence case as
in AACR2) but it is not required
For unusual capitalization, transcribe from source as is
245 10 eBay for dummies
245 10 www.google.com


Errors in title are transcribed as is; do not use [sic] or i.e.
Put corrected title in a 246
On t.p.: Peter Pual Rubens
245 10 Peter Pual Rubens
246 1 $i Corrected title: $a Peter Paul Reubens

If item lacks a collective title, list separately as in AACR2
OR the cataloger may devise a collective title; do not use
[ ], add a 500 note Title devised by cataloger.
245 10 The Archbishop’s ceiling ; $b The American clock
Or the option:
245 10 Two plays
500


Title devised by cataloger.
Alternative titles are still title proper in RDA
245 10 Moby Dick, or, The whale.
Parallel and other title information is not core for RDA,
but is for LC/PCC

For titles in compilations, use a 700 and
740 field for additional titles
245 10 Pride and prejudice ; $b Emma / Jane
Austen
700 1 Austen, Jane, $d 1775-1817. $t Pride and

Relationships
In RDA, there is a lot of emphasis on
relationships between creators, creations, and
subjects, and each other
 RDA chapters 5-10 deal with relationships
between FRBR elements
 Appendixes I-L list “relationship designators”
that can be used to indicate the relationship
between creators, creations, and subjects
 Relationship designators go in $e of access
points


7xx fields: add $i for relationship information using
