FRBR group one entities are work, expression, manifestation and item and each one has special attributes. Therefore all fields and data elements of Iran MARC were examined via comparative method to the entities and attributes of the first group. In first segment a table was made and all of the data elements were mapped based on similar research conducted on MARC 21 by U.S Congress Library.
