LC Cataloging Staff Involved in US RDA Test to Resume RDA Cataloging in November 2011

To help LC in carrying out its responsibilities for (1) the ongoing development of  RDA , and (2) the creation and/or revision of training materials supporting documentation for LC, PCC, and the U.S. library community, most of the LC cataloging staff who participated in the U.S. RDA Test will return to using  RDA  for cataloging starting in November 2011. Documents identifying changes in LC policies from those followed during the U.S. RDA Test and refresher training materials prepared for LC’s  RDA  cataloging staff will be posted on LC’s web site for preparation for  RDA  ( ).

Rewording of RDA: Resource Description and Access

At its  August 24 meeting , the Committee of Principals requested that ALA Publishing on behalf of the Co-Publishers of RDA: Resource Description and Access work with the JSC and the U.S Test Committee to formulate a plan for the rewording of RDA and to define the role of the copy editor. Today the Co-Publishers are releasing  "The Plan for the Rewording of RDA and the Role of the Copy Editor" . The statement details the editorial steps necessary to reword  RDA  and sets a goal of submitting five chapters for review by the JSC and then the U.S Test Committee no later than June 2012. The search to identify a copy editor with the knowledge and skills to take on this assignment is underway. More details about the copy editor and the rewording plan will be shared as soon as they become available.  (Source: RDA Toolkit ) See also: RDA Blog  Home About RDA - Resource Description and Access About RDA Blog RDA Resources Cataloger's Reference Directory RDA Blo
