Welcome to the University of Colorado at Boulder FRBR discussion pages. This blog is part of an effort to read the entire Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records carefully as a department and discuss its implications, applications, advantages, and shortcomings.
Each section of FRBR will be published as the group moves through the whole document. At the beginning, there will be only a few sections to read, but as the discussion progresses we will add more. By the time the discussion group is complete we will have hopefully read the entire document.
This blog is also setup for paragraph by paragraph comments. One of the best ways to learn is by critically reading text and commenting. This blog will enable us all to share comments and ideas as we work through this important document. Please post any and every comment, there are no wrong answers or silly questions.
If you have questions or concerns, please contact James P. Ascher who is maintaining the blog and running the training.
