6th UNIMARC Users Meeting: Charting the Course: Future-Forward Cataloguing with UNIMARC

IFLA’s UNIMARC encoding and exchange format has undergone a major transformation with adoption of a new entity-relationship (ER) conceptual model the IFLA Library Reference Model (IFLA LRM), which brings innovative cataloguing approaches for the digital environment.
