Title: FRBR as an interdisciplinary high-middle-range theory for information science — a theoretical perspective
Author(s): Renear, Allen H.; Dubin, Dave
Subject(s): FRBR information science R. K. Merton theory conceptual modeling ontology
Abstract: We suggest that IFLA’s Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records is an interesting, if unexpected, example of Merton’s “theories of the middle range” and show how theoretical analysis and refinement of such theories can illuminate the deep interdisciplinarity of information science.
