Coyle's expert ability to draw from the deep historical background of cataloging theory to illuminate the potentials of library data on the Web helped win her the 2011 ALCTS Outstanding Publication Award. Here she persuasively argues that to more effectively connect library users with books, movies, music, computer games, and other resources, library data needs to move beyond FRBR towards a more integrative approach to bibliographic models. But doing so requires fundamental changes in the approach to library data. Combing a sweeping perspective with a critical eye, she assesses how we define a work in the bibliographic world. Showing how bibliographic models reflect technology and our assumed goals of libraries, she points the way ahead for catalogers and metadata specialists, providing clear explanations and analysis on such topics as

  • library data models and their connection to technology, from early printing to relational databases and the Semantic Web;
  • ideas and influence of leading thinkers such Lubetsky, Wilson, and Tillet, along with lesser known theorists like Tanaguchi;
  • IFLA meetings that led to the FRBR study group, including its original charge and final report;
  • FRBR as a conceptual model, and how that differs from data models;
  • the FRBR document's flawed entity-relationship model and how it overlooks user needs;
  • efforts to define a work as a meaningful, creative unit separate from the physical package;
  • detailed analysis of the FRBR entities; and
  • implementations of FRBR both inside and outside the library community.

Coyle's articulate treatment of the issues at hand helps bridge the divide between traditional cataloging practice and the algorithmic metadata approach, making this book an important resource for both LIS students and practitioners.

About the Author:

Karen Coyle is a librarian with over 30 years' experience with library technology, who serves as consultant on a variety of issues relating to digital libraries. She has published dozens of articles and reports, and has served on several standards committees, including the MARC standards group (MARBI) and the NISO committee AX for the OpenURL standard, and was an ALA representative on the e-book standards development team that contributed to the ePub standard. She writes and speaks on a wide range of policy areas, including intellectual property, privacy, and public access to information. Her January 2010 issue of Library Technology Reports, "Understanding the Semantic Web: Bibliographic Data and Metadata," was awarded the 2011 ALCTS Outstanding Publication Award.

Review:

In this brief work Karen Coyle makes FRBR, short for Functional Requirements
for Bibliographic Records, clear and understandable. This is no small feat, especially for those who approach the idea with some trepidation ... a highly practical book for those preparing to transition. This book is recommended for academic libraries and catalogers looking to stay up-to-date in the field." --Catholic Library World

"Coyle is an expert at explaining complex information technology in a way that is clear but never condescending, and detailed but never verbose." --Against The Grain

"I assume it is safe to say that librarians nearly everywhere recognize [FRBR] and understand it at some level. Comprehending all it entails and what it holds for our future is altogether a different matter however. That is where this book proves valuable ... Much of the language is rather technical, although this is helped by Coyle's ability to create illustrations from real world situations in a way that is easily understandable and engaging. I found the layout and arrangement of chapters to be logical and there is an extensive bibliography and index, as well as a number of charts and diagrams to explain and clarify structures in FRBR and other models." --Technicalities
