FRBR, Before and After: A Look at Our Bibliographic Models

Coyle, Karen. FRBR, Before and After: A Look at Our Bibliographic Models. ALA Editions, 2016. ISBN: 978-0-8389-1345-1

Coyle persuasively argues that to more effectively connect library users with books, movies, music, computer games, and other resources, library data needs to move beyond FRBR towards a more integrative approach to bibliographic models. But doing so requires fundamental changes in the approach to library data. She points the way ahead for catalogers and metadata specialists, providing clear explanations and analysis.
