Thanks for this, Bernadette. I especially like the note under slide 4: "The point of FRBR is to achieve the most useful clusters and links, so FRBR structure is subordinate to FRBR user tasks. Not a new metaphysics."

It includes brief transfer training materials for experienced cataloguers and comprehensive materials for training from scratch and for reference, all available under a Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 license. Because we have a very large number of cataloguers scattered over many libraries, some of whom do only small amounts of cataloguing, our documentation is designed to be fairly free-standing. We have to keep contact sessions to the minimum, and we do not expect all cataloguers to gain a detailed knowledge of FRBR or of the RDA Toolkit. We benefited greatly from seeing other agencies' materials when we were planning our RDA implementation, and we hope that our materials may be of some use or interest to agencies who are currently planning their own implementation. Comments and corrections are very welcome (c...@bodleian.ox.ac.uk<mailto:c...@bodleian.ox.ac.uk>).
