Authority control in AACR3

I haven’t read much about “AACR3(AACR3: Resource Description and Access)”:http://www.collectionscanada.ca/jsc/docs/aacr3pptjan2005.pdf yet, but since I appear to be taking on a new role within our Cooperative, this document by Deirdre Kiorgaard and Ann Huthwaite, “Authority control in AACR3(Authority control in AACR3)”:http://www.nla.gov.au/lis/stndrds/grps/acoc/kiorgaard2005.doc, may prove to have been essential reading. “FRBR(Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records)”:http://www.libraryplanet.com/2002/08/12/functional appears to have an important place in the new standard, which will definitely be a good thing.
