RDA - Resource Description and Access

RDA, Resource Description and Access, is the new content standard for metadata, which will be released in 2009 and implemented in 2010. RDA brings a new perspective to resource description and access. A key aspect of RDA is its alignment with the FRBR/FRAD conceptual models (Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records and Functional Requirements for Authority Data). The session will demonstrate how this alignment shapes RDA's goals and structure, and it will focus on the aspects of RDA that distinguish it from its predecessor, AACR2. The session will also address preparation for implementation.

Christine Oliver's presentation is now available from the CASLIS Ottawa website.
