- Welcome to the Registry, RDA Online users! “This page provides quick links for the Registered RDA Element Sets and Value Vocabularies.

FRBR Entities for RDA has a note: “Provisional registration of FRBR entities for use in RDA.

Anything that helps with this helps with identifying Manifestations, Expressions, and Works.
