Seeing Through FRBR

December 18, 2012

sidebysideAs RDA implementation picks up speed, more and more library groups are getting to grips with FRBR. I was delighted to be asked to lead a workshop for ARLIS UK at University of East London Docklands campus.

I’ve uploaded my slides here, although, as usual, they are mostly pictures, so are really a reminder for any attendees.
