The WoGroFuBiCo, or Working Group on the Future of Bibliographic Control (created by the Library of Congress), had a meeting last week at Google headquarters. (They wanted a meeting in California and Google offered the space.) FRBR came up during the day. If you’re interested in FRBR, you’ll want to follow this group, both for what they do and what people say they should be doing. Here are some relevant blog posts.
- Karen Coyle diligently took notes on all the talks and posted them on her blog. Start with Preamble: Users and Uses Meeting for some background and then work your way forward.
- Andrew Pace spoke, and posted on his blog in Bibliographic Control Meeting
- Talis’s Panlibus blog comments with The Future of Bibliographic Control… And the Pesky Users and Uses (and says FRBR is “a good enough idea, but insanely more complicated than is really required, and typically over-engineered”!)
- OCLC’s Lorcan Dempsey was there and in LC WGFBC he says a longer post is forthcoming.
