The book analyzes the 21st-century challenges of managing information resources and data—including books, eBooks, audio files, video files, computer files, and Web resources—for access within the Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records (FRBR) model.
Organizing for Access with FRBR, RDA, Linked Data, and Beyond provides a current, insightful discussion of the new opportunities and challenges posed by the management of big datasets. It explains how to apply Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records (FRBR) and Resource Description and Access (RDA) to create cataloging records for various types of resources—skills that will help systems librarians, reference librarians, and digital resources librarians to transform their professional practices and give them an invaluable competitive edge.
This book is ideal as a primary textbook for a range of LIS courses, such as courses on cataloging and/or managing audiovisual collections and continuing education workshops on cataloging audiovisual materials (including music or film collections). It presents a critical assessment of the advantages and limitations of using RDA for managing information resources and data, explains how to increase the benefit and relevancy of library data and records, and discusses innovative approaches such as linked data for the Semantic Web. The author also offers strategies that LIS professionals can employ to make meaningful contributions to the fast-growing area of data management and access.
