The quest to evolve bibliographic control to an equal or greater standing within the current information environment is on-going. As information organizers we are working in a time where information and communication technology (ICT) has pushed our status quo to its limits and where innovation often needs the pressure of do or die in order to get started. The year 2010 was designated as the Year of Cataloging Research and we made progress on studying the challenges facing metadata and information organization practices. However, one year of research is merely a drop in the bucket, especially given the results of the Resource and Description and Access (RDA) National Test and the Library of Congress’ decision to investigate the possibility of transitioning the MARC21 format. This book addresses how information professionals can create a functional environment in which we move beyond just representing information resources and into an environment that both represents and connects at a deeper level. Most importantly, it offers insight on transitioning into new communities of practice and awareness by reassessing our purpose, re-charting our efforts, reasserting our expertise in the areas that information organizer have traditionally claimed but are losing due to stagnation and lack of vision. This book was published as a double special issue of the Journal of Library Metadata.

Get the straight facts on FRBR—and whether it is right for you! In 1998, Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records (FRBR) was a conceptual model promoted by the International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions (IFLA) as being the recommended new advancement in cataloging. As libraries strive to serve their users better in the coming years, questions remain as to whether FRBR may provide an answer on how to improve cataloging systems. Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records (FRBR): Hype or Cure-All? explores not only the theoretical issues, such as the concept of “works” and the bibliographic relationships of musical works, but also provides a unique survey of most of the systems that actually implement FRBR such as the AustLit Gateway. This book describes the challenges that accompany implementation of FRBR, and how this abstract approach to cataloging can be a useful, practical tool to help improve library systems. Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records (FRBR): Hype or Cure-All? clearly explains the concepts, ideas, and practical applications of FRBR. The book is comprised of four major sections. A chronological section explains how FRBR was developed and how it will evolve in the future; a theoretical section reviews how FRBR analyzes different types of library materials; a practical aspects section examines how some systems actually use FRBR; and lastly, a section that explains an alternative to FRBR—the XOBIS project—which shows that other solutions are possible to meet future cataloging challenges. Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records (FRBR) explores: innovative features, including the “Semantic Web” activities future evolutions in cataloging alternatives to FRBR the history of IFLA Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records Study an updated description of the entity-relationship model being developed by the Working Group to extend the FRBR model to cover authority data key aspects of the FRBR and FRANAR models that will need to be re-examined the concept of expression the cataloging of hand press materials the AustLit Gateway musical works in the FRBR model the Paradigma Project at the National Library of Norway the FRBR and the performing arts oral traditions and FRBR the design of future systems the European FRBR research initiative FRBRizing OCLC’s WorldCat the IFPA software and application interfaces the Library of Congress’s FRBR Display Tool XOBIS—metadata—the critical bridge between content and sophisticated access Librarians, library science faculty, students, and vendors will find Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records (FRBR): Hype or Cure-All? an invaluable source of information on both the theoretical and practical aspects of FRBR.

Coyle’s expert ability to draw from the deep historical background of cataloging theory to illuminate the potentials of library data on the Web helped win her the 2011 ALCTS Outstanding Publication Award. Here she 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. Combing a sweeping perspective with a critical eye, she assesses how we define a work in the bibliographic world. Showing how bibliographic models reflect technology and our assumed goals of libraries, she points the way ahead for catalogers and metadata specialists, providing clear explanations and analysis on such topics as library data models and their connection to technology, from early printing to relational databases and the Semantic Web;ideas and influence of leading thinkers such Lubetsky, Wilson, and Tillet, along with lesser known theorists like Tanaguchi;IFLA meetings that led to the FRBR study group, including its original charge and final report;FRBR as a conceptual model, and how that differs from data models;the FRBR document’s flawed entity-relationship model and how it overlooks user needs;efforts to define a work as a meaningful, creative unit separate from the physical package;detailed analysis of the FRBR entities; andimplementations of FRBR both inside and outside the library community.Coyle's articulate treatment of the issues at hand helps bridge the divide between traditional cataloging practice and the algorithmic metadata approach, making this book an important resource for both LIS students and practitioners.

This book examines very important issues in research evaluation in the Social Sciences and Humanities. It is based on recent experiences carried out in Italy (2011-2015) in the fields of research assessment, peer review, journal classification, and construction of indicators, and presents a systematic review of theoretical issues influencing the evaluation of Social Sciences and Humanities. Several chapters analyse original data made available through research assessment exercises. Other chapters are the result of dedicated and independent research carried out in 2014-2015 aimed at addressing some of the debated and open issues, for example in the evaluation of books, the use of Library Catalog Analysis or Google Scholar, the definition of research quality criteria on internationalization, as well as opening the way to innovative indicators. The book is therefore a timely and important contribution to the international debate.
