Chapman, RDA: A New International Standard

Posted by: William Denton, 10 November 2006 7:14 am
Categories: Papers,RDA

Ann Chapman, who has the improbable but fascinating title of Interoperability Focus Officer at UKOLN, has a paper in the October 2006 issue of the online journal Ariadne: RDA: A New International Standard. It’s a summary of why Resource Description and Access is being written, how it’s being done, what it will be like, and so on. It’ll be particularly helpful to people from outside the library world, or who aren’t cataloguers, who are a bit vague about AACR and RDA. Since RDA is FRBRy, FRBR is mentioned.
