My lecture

I gave a guest lecture on FRBR last December to Joe Cox’s advanced cataloguing class at the Faculty of Information Studies at the University of Toronto. It was recorded, but unfortunately the batteries died after 17 minutes and 33 seconds. I’m posting it here anyway, just for fun. You’ll have to imagine what the rest of the hour was like. The MP3 ends at an exciting point, just when I was about to explain expressions by distinguishing between two different translations of The Odyssey. The recording quality isn’t great; I think the background noise is the hum of the projector.
