Hi Allyson,

It would be great to have a copy of FRBR your slides.
I often have to explain this model and find it quite difficult.

Thank you

I would be interested in viewing your slides as well.  Are there notes
attached so we can see what you said as well? (My slides are always graphic
intensive so alone they are not as useful without notes.)

Subject: [eduCAT] Teaching the FRBR model, introduction with slides

Hi all,
At ALA on Monday there was a great session on education for cataloging, and
the FRBR model came up. At that meeting, a lot of people seemed to want help
in introducing/teaching FRBR, since it is the backbone of RDA.

I have a set of PowerPoint slides that I am happy to share to help introduce
the FRBR model of group 1 entities. I just finished revising them so that
they are a bit more generic than the set I use for my own students. These
slides are based on my 2006 article from LRTS (Carlyle, Allyson.
"Understanding FRBR as a conceptual model: FRBR and the bibliographic
universe," Library Resources & Technical Services, v. 50, no. 4 (October
2006), p. 264-273.).

The LRTS article was based on a talk I gave at an ALCTS preconference in
2004, which came about because of my experience teaching the FRBR model in
our LIS program. The original set of slides from that talk is available in
pdf format, along with slides from the other speakers that you might find
useful on the ALCTS website:

You may also be interested in the IFLA website's FRBR Bibliography as well:

Other people (Barbara Tillett comes to mind immediately) have done wonderful
FRBR introductions and are very often willing to share their slides.

Please let me know if you would like me to send my slides, and I'd be very
happy to forward them to you. If you prefer the actual set of slides from
the 2004 ALCTS preconference, just let me know and I will send you those
(I'm sure I can find them...).

Autocatters - I've also sent this to the educat discussion list, which is
targeted to people who are teaching cataloging classes in LIS programs. It
is a very nice list, not overly active :) (unlike some other lists I could
