Implementation experience of the FRBR-based FAO Open Archive (OA) content model, focusing on the user benefits. Within the FAO OA framework, there are two types of users: those who generate information (catalogers) and those who use it (end-users). The FRBR implementation helps reduce the time consumed during cataloguing (e.g. adding subjects only to Work) and create richer relationships among documents. Given the special nature of the FAO collection, which often includes each of its publications in all six official languages, the FRBR entity Expression streamlines the creation of efficient relationships among all of the language variants. This helps end-users with enhanced searches, easier access to the documents, and better delivery of the proper content in the proper language. The FAO OA also integrates an authority control system in order to provide a more efficient management of multilingual names and support the use of hierarchical and historical relationships for corporate bodies, conferences, projects, journals and series forms.
