About this book

Resource Description and Access (RDA) is the new cataloguing standard that will replace the Anglo-American Cataloguing Rules (AACR) and represents a shift in the understanding of the cataloguing process. This guide offers practical advice on how to make the transition.

Contents

This indispensable Special Report helps catalogers by: * concisely explaining RDA and its expected benefits for users and cataloguers, presented through topics and questions * placing RDA in context by examining its connection with its predecessor, AACR2, as well as looking at RDA's relationship to internationally accepted principles, standards and models *detailing how RDA positions us to take advantage of newly emerging database structures, how RDA data enables improved resource discovery, and how we can get metadata out of library silos and make it more accessible.
