RDA new cataloging rules

As the implementation of RDA approaches in April SCIS felt it would be good to provide a compilation of our Connections articles and blogs on this topic so far.

In Connections 83 we published  Why new rules, and what has it got to do with me? by Renate Beilharz from Box Hill Institute

As part of the SCIS consultation on 4 December 2012 Renate also provided an introduction to Resource Description and Access (RDA)  and its benefits for education libraries which we  blogged about .  Click here for the slide share of Renate’s presentations

SCIS, along with the library world globally is preparing for the first major cataloging standards change to take place since the Anglo-American Cataloging Rules, second edition (AACR2) were released in 1978.  You can find out more on SCIS implementation of RDA here

More information about RDA is available on the website of the Australian Committee on cataloging.  You will also find a helpful overview on RDA on Wikipedia
