In this paper we consider the suitability of the Functional Requirements of Bibliographic Records (FRBR) model for an inclusive information environment. The AccessForAll approach to digital information asserts that every user has an equal right to information resources. The FRBR study identified bibliographic records users and, for them, determined a minimum set of entities, and their attributes and relationships, to determine a model of a record or resources that was necessary to satisfy what were, at the time, determined to be recommended user requirements. Our examination of the FRBR model shows that, in fact, more attributes are probably necessary for an inclusive environment.
