Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records

Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records


Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records (FRBR /ˈfɜːrbər/) is a conceptual entity-relationship model developed by the International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions (IFLA) that relates user tasks of retrieval and access in online library catalogs and bibliographic databases from a user’s perspective. It represents a more holistic approach to retrieval and access as the relationships between the entities provide links to navigate through the hierarchy of relationships. The model is significant because it is separate from specific cataloging standards such as Anglo-American Cataloguing Rules (AACR) or International Standard Bibliographic Description (ISBD).

What does the acronym FRBR stand for?

(a) Functional Requirements for Better Records

(b) Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records

(c) Functional Records for Big Research Libraries
