ALISE 2016 has ended
The ALISE 2016 Conference theme of “Radical Change: Inclusion and Innovation” celebrates the far reaching impact of Eliza T. Dresang’s work. The conference welcomes contributions that explore inclusive practices and innovative strategies in teaching and research, with special interest for Cultural Diversity, Digital Societies, Intellectual Freedom, Social Justice and International Resources.

Our logo for the conference is the metamorphosis of a caterpillar to a butterfly. This is a great symbol of radical change and transformation. Although the caterpillar and the butterfly exist in the same environment, each has its own perception and understanding of the world. As the caterpillar prepares for transformation, it must build the chrysalis, which acts as protection and change agent. When the radical change is completed, the butterfly emerges from the chrysalis into a new world, one of amazing potential and opportunity. The radical transformation and change allows the caterpillar to move beyond its small environment as a beautiful butterfly excited and ready to see and learn about its brave new world.

Session 2.6 A Juried Paper: FRBR, conceptual knowledge and Harry Potter: radical change and innovative solutions in cataloging education

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

The advent of FRBR has brought radical changes to cataloging education, as this rich and complex set of models shapes cataloging in our modern, digital age. This paper will discuss the impact of FRBR’s conceptual models on cataloging teaching, such as conflicting opinions about the required extent and depth of FRBR teaching, and the radical changes that FRBR brings to cataloging educators. Examples of innovative FRBR teaching techniques will be given, acting as a starting point to explore how FRBR can influence pedagogy, and demonstrating why familiar worlds such as Harry Potter are useful when teaching FRBR.
