Moving Image Work-Level Records Task Force


This task force will investigate and make recommendations on issues related to FRBR-based work-level records for moving image materials, including, but not limited to:


  • Identifying characteristics of moving image works (possibly with some indication of relative importance) that should be included in work-level records and creating operational definitions of these characteristics.
  • Identifying potential sources of information about these characteristics and examining the reliability of these sources.
  • Examining existing bibliographic records to identify places where work-level information might be recorded and investigating the possibility of extracting information from pools of existing bibliographic records to create provisional work-level records.
