Problems users are having searching for known works in current OPACs are summarized, and it is suggested that a better understanding of AACR2R/MARC 21 authority, bibliographic, and holdings records would allow us to FRBR-ize our current OPACs using existing records. The presence of work and expression identifiers in bibliographic and authority records is analyzed. Recommendations are made concerning better indexing and display of works and expression/manifestations. Questions are raised about… 
FRBRization of a Library Catalog : Better Collocation of Records, Leading to Enhanced Search, Retrieval, and Display
The benefits of FRBR to nextgeneration library catalogs and OPACs are summarized, and the handful of ILS and catalog systems currently operating with its theoretical structure are reviewed.
The value of MARC data, or, challenges of frbrisation
This research analyses limitations in existing bibliographic information and looks for short- and long-term solutions that can improve the data quality in terms of expressing the FRBR model by analysing statistics of field and subfield usage.
A Survey of FRBRization Techniques
This paper proposes a synthetic and relevant classification of the FRBRization techniques according to specific criteria of comparison such as model expressiveness or specific enhancements.
Linking print and electronic books : One approach
The authors developed a method for serving users more effectively by linking bibliographic records for print books to leverage the enhancements for both versions (two manifestations) of the same title.
Supporting multilingual bibliographic resource discovery with Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records
The hypothesis that FRBR can be implemented for resource discovery in a non-intrusive way, reusing the data of any existing traditional bibliographic system is supported.
Att identifiera uttryck
The aim of this thesis is to analyse the possibility to identify the FRBR entity expression from existing catalogue records performed within the context of Swedish cataloguing rules. The empirical
Functional requirements for bibliographic records: From a conceptual model to application and system development
A survey of current system development, implementation efforts and different applications of the FRBR model is needed in order to gain a better understanding of these activities, solve application issues and plan for more successful FRBR projects in the future.
This article aims to look out at role of FRBR in digital library system and exhort that FRBR implemented in a prototype library catalog and related user research during the design and implementation process.
Conceptualizations of the Cataloging Object: A Critique on Current Perceptions of FRBR Group 1 Entities
This study reveals that there are different perspectives of what is introduced by FRBR as the cataloging object in the context of various interpretations of the model, namely Resource Description and Access (RDA), FRBRization projects, and FRBROO.
