Resource Description Access (RDA)

Drops the 'cataloguing' terminology

Based on FRBR/FRAD and on RDBMS structures

Builds on AACR2 principles

Chapters for types of material dropped, focus on content rather than form

Catalogue records need not be changed

MARC21 format will be modified

For example:

AACR2 25.8A - more detailed

Use the collective title Works for item that consists of, or purports to be, the complete works of a person

AACR2 1.2B1

Transcribe the edition statement as found on the item. Use abbreviations as instructed in appendix B and numerals as instructed in appendix C

RDA 6.2.2.10.1 - less standardised

Record the conventional collective title Works as the preferred title for a compilation of works that consists of, or purports to be, the complete works of a person family or corporate body

RDA 2.5.1.4

Transcribe an edition statement as it appears on the source of information

RDA provides a more flexible framework for resource Description and access, and make bibliographic information accessible on the web.

RDA:
Can be embedded within Dublin Core (RDA element set)
Intended to be useful outside library community
Many local formats
Often based on Dublin Core
Simplest forms of AACR2
May emphasise aspects of local importance
Be adapted for a particular format
