Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records. In information studies and related fields, FRBR (pronounced Fur-bur) refers to basic informational standards required to produce efficiency and accuracy during record retrieval in electronic catalogs. A catalog is said to be "FRBRized" when a search for an item produces all or most records for that item, regardless of edition and sometimes format. For instance, a search for The Stand by Stephen King in a FRBRized catalog produces a single entry for the work, rather than dozens of catalog entries for the different editions, audiobooks, etc.

Incidentally, the urbandictionary appears to be somewhat FRBRized as the alphabetic scroll along the left-hand side has a single link to produce myriad definitions for some terms.
