Bibliographic record

(Cataloging) (FR Notice bibliographique)

An entry representing a specific item in a library catalogue or bibliographic database, containing all the data elements necessary for a full description, presented in a specific bibliographic format. In modern cataloguing, the standard format is machine-readable, but prior to use of computers, the traditional format was the catalogue card. In the FRBR model, the bibliographic record is the manifestation of a work, but with the RDA format the bibliographic record will be split into entities. Ifla
