On 25 June 2005 I announced this blog to the FRBR mailing list and elsewhere. Any suggestions for what to do here to celebrate? Aside from preparing for the One Big Library Unconference two days later, that is.
Hello, I was able to go to the May FRBR workshop hosted by IFLA and OCLC, and it was very interesting and thought-provoking. I'm really glad I was there. One of the things that struck me was that many smart people are working on FRBR but it's hard for the average person to follow it all. It's especially hard for people out of the loop of academic journals and association memberships. There's this mailing list, of course, but I got to thinking that a FRBR weblog would be useful. So I started one. I've set up http://www.frbr.org/ and filled it with some things I'd had bookmarked. Please have a look and tell me any suggestions or comments you have, especially including good things to link to. If you have something FRBRish on the web, or a paper in a journal somewhere, I'd love to hear about it. I hope that over the next few months I'll have lots of interesting links to post, and that the blog becomes a useful resource for people--not just librarians, but anyone interested in FRBR--wanting to stay up to date. RSS feeds are available, and comments are allowed on all the entries.
