Functional Requirements for Subject Authority Data (FRSAD) is the third model of the FRBR family developed by IFLA. This paper traces the history of the development of the model through the activities of the Working Group that developed the model (Part I), and describes the constructs of the FRSAD model, including the entities, attributes, and relationships defined in the FRSAD model (Part II). The paper also summarizes a number of issues around the model (Part III) and discusses application-related studies (Part IV).
