The Music Library Association has issued a discussion paper that discusses the discovery requirements for music for more specialized collections. The paper discusses the impact of FRBR, MARC, and RDA.
“The world of discovery in general and of library discovery in particular is changing rapidly today. FRBR, RDA,1 discovery tools, and faceted browsing are key factors related to these changes in the way our users encounter library data. As libraries and vendors develop and implement these changes, the specialized discovery needs arising from music materials are often lost in the shuffle. This document serves as a guide to the specialized requirements of music materials for vendors, librarians, and anyone developing or implementing discovery interfaces of all kinds.”
