Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This indispensable Special Report helps catalogers and other metadata users by Concisely explaining RDA and its expected benefits for users and catalogers, 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 enable improved resource discovery, and how we can get metadata out of library silos and make it more accessible

Book News Annotation:

The cataloging and authorities coordinator at the McGill University Library, Oliver, introduces librarians to the new cataloging standard Resource Description and Access (RDA), which replaces the Anglo-American Cataloguing Rules, Second Edition (AACR2). It is quite different, he explains, because it is based on a theoretical framework, is designed for the digital environment, and has a broader scope. He covers what RDA is, the international context, functional requirements for authority data and subject authority data, continuity with AACR2, changes, implementing, and advantages and evolution.
