American Library Association,
Pub. Date:
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.
