Changes in RDA Content : Fast Track changes

This includes changes to some instruction captions, but there is no actual change in practice.  There are a few new relationship designators for Appendix I, the term “researcher” may be one of broad interest.
According to I.2.2 Relationship Designators for Other Persons, Families, or Corporate Bodies Associated with a Work: Researcher: A person, family, or corporate body who does research in support of the creation of a work.
Change in Content in LC-PCC PSs

Catalogers should review the following policy statement:  Revised instructions for dates associated with persons to use a $2 with ‘edtf’ in MARC authority field 046.  The PS will now match the DCM Z1 page for the 046.  Note that a revised macro to help populate authority 046 fields will be available soon.
