About this book

The launch of Resource Description and Access (RDA) will transform cataloging standards that have been virtually unchanged for 30 years. Existing standards, as laid out in the Anglo American Cataloging Rules, have struggled to keep pace with new publishing formats and new publishing practices.

This textbook is designed to assist cataloguers with the transition to this new standard.

RDA: the new standard, its development, structure and features
