  • Libraries that have implemented FRBR are obliged to resort to auxiliary models to display bibliographic records. This article examines the use of RDA for recording the different types of relationships (identifiers, authorized access points, composite structured and unstructured descriptions) and how to represent them in existing formats. It also analyzes the modifications that will be needed, and the elements that should be taken into account, in order to develop innovative tools capable of representing relationships in the clearest and most appropriate way for users, while staying current with the latest trends in information organization.
