Status: 

Just when you thought things had settled down: RDA is more or less stable; MARC will be around for awhile longer ... along comes IFLA-LRM. RDA is based on the conceptual models defined by FRBR (Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records), FRAD (Functional Requirements for Authority Data) and FRSAD (Functional Requirements for Subject Authority Data). These three models are combined and refined in the IFLA-LRM (IFLA Library Reference Model), which had been approved by the RDA Steering Committee as the new conceptual model for RDA. IFLA-LRM will have a profound effect on the development of the RDA Toolkit. This session will explain IFLA-LRM and discuss how this will change RDA.

Learning Objectives: 
  • Define IFLA-LRM and examine its origins
  • Explain how the entities, attributes and relationships defined in IFLA-LRM enable the user to find, identify, select obtain and explore resources of interest
  • Discuss how adoption of IFLA-LRM as a conceptual model will affect future development of RDA
Target Audience: 
Catalogers and metadata practitioners who wish to know the latest information regarding conceptual models related to RDA.
