RDA Blog or Resource Description & Access (RDA) is a blog on Resource Description and Access (RDA), a new library cataloging standard that provides instructions and guidelines on formulating data for resource description and discovery, organized based on the Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records (FRBR), intended for use by libraries and other cultural organizations replacing Anglo-American Cataloguing Rules (AACR2). Free for everyone Forever.
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 (http://www.loc.gov/aba/rda/).

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.
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.
