This article reports on a Delphi study conducted to determine key issues and challenges facing Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records (FRBR) research and practice. The Delphi panel consisted of thirty‐three experts in the field who participated in a three‐round issue‐raising and consensus‐building process via a Web‐based survey instrument designed for this study. The panel members were asked to raise critical issues in each of five major areas based on themes in existing literature… 
Review of the Delphi method in library and information science research
  • B. Lund
  • Computer Science
    J. Documentation
  • 2020
TLDR
Though LIS Delphi studies are relatively few in number, they have a consistent record of being published in some of the most prestigious LIS journals and an overview of existing literature in LIS that utilizes the research method is presented.
Developing FRBR-based library catalogs for users (sponsored by SIG/CR)
Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records (FRBR) has a direct impact on the library and information science community in the areas of information organization, information representation, and
User verification of the FRBR conceptual model
TLDR
It is found that the Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records (FRBR) conceptual model is intuitive and there should be a more positive attitude towards implementation of FRBR‐based catalogues.
Bibliographic records in an online environment
TLDR
Evaluating the IFLA functional requirements for bibliographic records model in the light of changes in the wider information environment and in information seeking behaviour online, rather than in terms of library catalogues per se finds that the model may no longer be sufficient as a theoretical model.
Creating better library information systems: the road to FRBR-land
TLDR
The paper provides a roadmap for future work on FRBR implementation and the creation of better library information systems by investigating three main aspects of future FRBR-related research and developments.
Incorporating nonparametric statistics into Delphi studies in library and information science
TLDR
The incorporation of the nonparametric statistics into the Delphi technique may enhance its rigour as a research method and provide evidence for its reliability and validity.
Home Incorporating nonparametric statistics into Delphi studies in library and information science
Introduction. The Delphi technique is widely used in library and information science research. However, many researchers in the field fail to employ standard statistical tests when using this
FRBR implementation and user research
TLDR
This panel will focus on practical aspects of FRBR and related user studies: FRBR model validation, FRBR user research,FRBR/FAO model implementation and benefits, and RDA vocabulary developments based on FRBR.
RDA and the Music Student: A Domain Analytic Approach to Catalog Needs
TLDR
This study uses the framework of domain analysis to suggest a model by which modern studies of catalog use might be approached and may provide a tool for evaluating and developing cataloging codes based on empirically-assessed user needs.
Users' perception of navigating bibliographic families from IFLA-LRM perspective
TLDR
The way users navigate bibliographic families not only when a user has no specific document in mind but also when he/she has a specific predefined need in mind is focused on.

Delphi Study of Digital Libraries
FRBR: Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records Application of the Entity-Relationship Mo
TLDR
This study examined a single work, The Expedition of Humphry Clinker, to determine benefits and drawbacks associated with creating an entity-relationship model and found the enhanced record approach avoids the problem of identifying expressions while providing similar functionality.
Functional requirements for bibliographic records: From a conceptual model to application and system development
TLDR
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.
Functional requirements for bibliographic records: FRBR: The end of the road or a new beginning
TLDR
After almost 10 years, there still seems to be some reluctance by the library community to implement FRBR, the conceptual model of the bibliographic universe developed by the International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions (IFLA).

TLDR
The Delphi Method was then used to summarize the opinions of experts in completing the construction of a performance evaluation model for e‐library and established the hierarchy structure for the performance evaluation of this research.

TLDR
The results confirm that the major issues related to schools’ use of online and CD-ROM databases involve their role in students’ development of the higher-order thinking skills necessary to plan, design, and conduct competent and credible research in the electronic information age.

A view to the future of the library and information science profession: A Delphi study
TLDR
A Delphi study conducted in Israel during 1998-2000 examined the views of library and information science experts on the future of the profession in light of the changes in information technology, finding that most experts believe that the traditional library will continue to operate along with the virtual library.
Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records
TLDR
The IFLA FRBR study was begun in 1992 in a context of much questioning about how bibliographic records and catalogs would work in changing technology, questions that continue to be relevant even now as technology continues to evolve and reveal new possibilities.
Codes, Costs, and Critiques: The Organization of Information in Library Quarterly, 1931–2004
TLDR
