  1. RDA Test “Train the Trainer Module 1: What RDA is and isn’t [Content as of Mar. 31, 2010]

  2. RDA is successor to AACR2 • but is not AACR3 -- RDA is different from AACR2

  3. RDA based on IFLA’s international models and principles • Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records (FRBR; 1998) • Functional Requirements for Authority Data (FRAD; 2009) • Statement of International Cataloguing Principles (ICP; 2009)

  4. FRBR: Find Identify Select Obtain FRAD: Find Identify Contextualize Justify Addresses user tasks • ICP’s highest principle = “convenience of • the user”

  5. Is a content standard • Not a display standard (as was AACR2) • Does have appendix D for ISBD and appendix E for AACR2 style for access points • Not an encoding standard • Use whatever schema you prefer (MARC 21, Dublin Core, etc.) • MARC 21 used in these training materials (with blank space around subfield codes for ease in reading)

  6. More international • Focus on local user needs • Choice of agency preparing the description: • Language • Script • Calendar • Numeric system

  7. For wider scope of resources • Response to what’s being acquired in libraries • More elements for non-printed text resources • More elements for non-text resources • More elements for unpublished resources • Compatible with specialist manuals (DACS, CCO, DCRM(B) etc.)

  8. Includes authority data instructions • Based on attributes and relationships in FRAD • Authorized/variant access points and elements will for now be documented in authority records

  9. Has controlled vocabularies • Only a few closed: content, media, and carrier types; mode of issuance; etc. • Most are open: cataloger can supply term if needed term not in list • Some vocabularies being registered on the Web • Training document #1 = list of vocabularies

  10. What’s changing? • Changes in technology • Impact on descriptive/access data • book catalogs • card catalogs • OPACs • next generation • Move from classes of materials to elements and values (more controlled vocabularies) • Move from individual library to international audience

  11. Internet • Catalogs are no longer in isolation • Global access to data • Virtual International Authority File (www.viaf.org) • Integrate bibliographic data with wider Internet environment • Share data beyond institutions

  12. Developed for the future • When authority and bibliographic data reside in separate “packages” • Records assembled when needed • When access points (if needed) can be assembled “on the fly” • When data for works and expressions can be reused for multiple manifestations

  13. Implementation for RDA Test • Encoding schema: whatever you’re using now (e.g., MARC 21, Dublin Core) • Display format: whatever you’re using now (e.g., ISBD)

  14. RDA appendices for transition • Appendix D mappings: • ISBD to RDA • MARC 21 bibliographic format to RDA • Appendix E: • Presentation and punctuation of access points • MARC 21 authority format mapping to RDA
