What We Talk About When We Talk About FRBR
Jodi Schneider, Appalachian State University; William Denton, York University
When vendors talk about FRBRization they usually mean grouping manifestations into works. When we talk about FRBR, we mean something far richer and rewarding. What FRBRization algorithms are available and in use now, how well do they work, and how do they present the relationships? We’ll look at the LC FRBR Display Tool, OCLC’s work-set algorithm, LibraryThing’s user-contributed groupings, and VTLS’s system. We’ll discuss their benefits, flaws, and what we need for the future.
