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
