Making the Point on

The FRAD Model


Abstract


This article reviews FRAD's origins, structure and themes (Functional Requirements for Authority Data), a conceptual model developed by IFLA to analyze authority data through an entity-relationship perspective.

The first section concerns the development of the document, from constitution of FRANAR in 1999 to the publication of FRAD in 2009. The following three sections are dedicated to innovations and features of the model: the entities, represented by sixteen essential elements of FRAD's framework, the attributes, namely the data held by entities, and the relationships, the dynamic part of FRAD's system. Finally, we briefly introduce the four user tasks and we reconstruct the reciprocal influences between FRAD and other important library science documents published in recent years.
