ALA 2011: Some RDA news

News from ALA Conference held in 2011

ALA Conference for RDA and RDA toolkit. The U.S. RDA Test Committee met with vendors, testers, and the public, and summarized the results of the test and the reasoning behind their recent decision. The U.S. RDA Test Committee stated that the "rewrite" of RDA will actually be more of a rewording, intended to simplify and clarify some of the instructions. Cataloging practice will not be affected by the rewording. We also learned that the Library of Congress will begin partial RDA Cataloging in November. They will catalog across all subject areas and expect RDA records to represent about 5% of the library's cataloging output. The National Library of Medicine and the National Agricultural Library will not catalog in RDA until full implementation begins.
