Pictures! Tillett’s “What Is FRBR” is the most conceptually easy article about structure we’ve had so far. The text was fine. Whatever. It was the flowcharts that really made it, each building off of each other so you could actually follow the process. Mentions of FRBR in other articles left me anxious and concerned that it would be insurmountable, but this made me feel almost comfortable. Then, very suddenly, I got over the glitz of actually getting the structure and realized that I don’t really understand what FRBR…. is. A method of record-keeping, surely, but is this almost arbitrarily different naming scheme even necessary? I get that it’s supposed to be more user-friendly, and is not in overwhelming use, but geez those highly readable charts sucked me in.
