FRBR Practicum

  • Applying the concepts:
  • Understanding conceptual relationships and putting them into practice
  • September 2012

What are we doing today?

  • Looking at various resources through surrogates, and describing them using the FRBR conceptual model
  • We will practice by answering the questions:
    • What is the work(s)?
    • What is the expression(s)?
    • What is the manifestation(s)?
    • What is the item(s)?
    • What are the relationships?
  • Note the attributes! They identify the entity.

What are we not doing today?

  • We are not cataloging
  • We are not referencing RDA rules
  • We are not guiding you on the one true way of FRBR

First…

  • We will walk through a few examples together, where I am giving you the answers.
  • Next we will do a few more examples together, where you work with me to produce the answers.

Next…

  • Then we will work together in small groups, where you and your colleagues will try to answer those questions from the packet we give you. Each group will have an instructor who can work with you.
  • Finally we will share the answers that the different groups have decided on and discuss them, for as long as we have time.

Caveats

  • This is a good place to play with the what-ifs, but don’t let the what-ifs distract you too much. We are still cataloging in the real world.
  • Don't panic!

Example 1: A civil campaign

  • Lois McMaster Bujold wrote a book about her ongoing fictional character Miles Vorkosigan, in which he pursues and wins his chosen lady.
  • On her website, you can find that it not only exists in English, but in a variety of translations. It has also been re-published in an omnibus edition (called Miles in love) with other novels in the series.

Example 1: Further signs of existence
