Based on an article originally published in Technicalities (v. 25, no. 5, Sept./Oct. 2003), the text provides a brief overview of the Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records (FRBR) as developed by the International Federation of Library Associations (IFLA). Using full-color graphics, What is FRBR? 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.
