  • Implementation of the LRM in RDA -- The RDA Steering Committee (RSC) agreed at its November 2016 meeting to adopt the draft IFLA Library Reference Model (LRM) as a conceptual model for the development of RDA: Resource Description and Access, replacing the Functional Requirements family of models (FRBR, FRAD, and FRSAD) that are superseded by the LRM. Although the LRM is not yet approved and published by IFLA, the RSC wishes to be proactive at this stage because the final draft submitted for approval is not expected to undergo significant changes. The RSC will continue to monitor the LRM through its protocol with the FRBR Review Group. The RDA Toolkit Restructure and Redesign (3R) Project will aim for compatibility between the current RDA entities and elements and the LRM, and will use the LRM to guide the development of RDA Toolkit for international, cultural heritage, and linked data communities. The consolidation of gaps and inconsistencies in the preceding conceptual models gives the opportunity for the long-awaited evolution of the treatment of agents, aggregates, and other under-developed areas of RDA. The first significant impacts of the LRM will appear in the April 2018 release of RDA Toolkit. This announcement gives an initial indication of what those impacts will be. Except where specifically noted, the RSC does not expect current interpretation and application of RDA to be changed. Instead, additional methods for creating and maintaining coherent RDA data will become available. Three completely new entities will be added to RDA: Collective Agent, Nomen, and Time-span. Two other entities that are already implicit in RDA, Agent and Place, will be added and consolidated ... ... ... Read full article: http://rda-rsc.org/ImplementationLRMinRDA
  • RDA Toolkit Update, February 14, 2017 -- A new release of the RDA Toolkit is published on Tuesday, February 14. This release contains a small number of Fast Track changes made through the normal Fast Track process; the document outlining the changes may be found at http://www.rda-rsc.org/sites/all/files/RSC-Sec-6.pdf  Variant title  for work: The scope statements at 6.2.3.1, 6.14.3.1, 6.19.3.1, 6.23.3.1, 6.26.3.1, and the corresponding instructions for recording variant titles for works have been modified to remove limitations on when titles appearing on manifestations can be used as variant titles. Catalogers may now apply their judgment for recording variant titles when they consider it important for identification or access. Variant names for persons, families, corporate bodies and places: Similarly, the scope statements and instructions for these variant names have been modified to more clearly reflect that catalogers may records variant names when they consider it important for identification or access. Tables in 3.2.1.3 (Media type) and 6.9.1.3 (Content type):  The tables in these instructions have been replaced by a list of terms, for consistency with all other RDA vocabularies and to allow for synchronization between the RDA text in the Toolkit and the RDA Registry.  There is no change to the terms used, or the definitions for the terms, which are available in the glossary. A summary of LC-PCC PS updates incorporated in this release is attached (LCPCCPS_changes_2017_February.pdf; and is also available at  http://www.loc.gov/aba/rda/lcps_access.html).

Resource Description and Access RDA
click to enlarge

Resource Description and Access RDA Blog Revision: RDA Blog has undergone some major revisions.

Contents:
  • RDA Blog has moved to HTTPS from HTTP 
  • Formatting Changes in RDA Blog posts and Pages 
  • References in Resource Description and Access RDA Blog 
  • RDA FAQ - Resource Description and Access Frequently Asked Questions Revision
RDA Blog has moved to HTTPS from HTTP

Resource Description and Access RDA Blog is now even more secure. RDA Blog has enabled HTTPS. The URL has moved to https://resourcedescriptionandaccess.blogspot.com/

HTTPS has become a web-standard & one of those practices that every webmaster should follow. HTTPS is great for the security of data as it encrypts the data transferred between users & a website. Especially it protects them from common hacking practices such as data sniffing & man-in-the-middle-attack. 

There are three main benefits to using HTTPS instead of HTTP to access RDA Blog:
  • It helps check that your visitors open the correct website and aren’t being redirected to a malicious site.
  • It helps detect if an attacker tries to change any data sent from Blogger to the visitor.
  • It adds security measures that make it harder for other people to listen to your visitors’ conversations, track their activities, or steal their information.
Formatting Changes in RDA Blog posts and Pages

Formatting of some Resource Description and Access RDA Blog posts and pages are changed to give a uniform look. Following are the RDA Blog pages who has undergone major formatting revisions:
References in Resource Description and Access RDA Blog

Starting from May 10, 2016, articles in Resource Description & Access (RDA) or RDA Blog will follow the reference formats as used by articles in the Encyclopedia of Library and Information Sciences (ELIS). [Exception being the items in RDA Bibliography].

RDA FAQ page is thoroughly revised. We are in a process of revising RDA Blog posts. The important posts are compiled in the RDA FAQ.
