Back on 18 October, in FRBR at Wyoming Conference, I quoted Janet Ahrberg, who’d enjoyed a talk about FRBR: “Because of it, I’m going home with ‘FRBR’ firmly implanted in my head.”
A video recording of the talk is online! Jerry Krois pointed it out in a comment to my previous post. It’s only in Windows Media format, which is a shame (non-proprietary formats are better), but I was able to play it with gxine. You can get it here: Rosario Garza: Reference, Resource Sharing, and FRBR: Why You Should Care (55 minutes, recorded 14 October 2005). The audio is fairly poor and the camera was just sitting at the back of the room, which is too bad, but it’s about FRBR!
Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records (FRBR) are the latest buzz in the technical services world, and online catalogs will eventually be “FRBRized.” What does this mean for your day-to-day reference work? What about interlibrary loan staff? This program focuses on how FRBR affects the public services side of library work. Presenter: Rosario Garza, Bibliographical Center for Research (BCR), Aurora, CO.
Be warned, though: Rosario Garza says the FRBR final report is “a cure for insomnia” and “it’s not exciting reading, I wouldn’t recommend it”! Great Scott, I could hardly believe my ears. It quite upset my evening.
