About this book

Recently, many new types of material - integrating resources, dual-disc DVDs, streaming video, to mention just a few - have developed, and current cataloguing standards do not always keep pace with such rapidly emerging technologies that continue to evolve. Resource Description and Access (RDA) is replacing the Anglo-American Cataloguing Rules (AACR), and is intended to have a much wider scope in terms of the range of resources covered.

This comprehensive guide offers examples and illustrations of rule applications and covers materials, sound recordings, motion pictures and videorecordings, electronic resources (CDs, networked resources, internet resources), kits and microforms.


* cartographic resources * sound recordings * videos * electronic resources (CDs, online resources) *electronic integrating resources * microforms * multimedia kits.
