Rethinking, Restructuring, & Redesigning RDA
Presented by Kathy Glennan, Head of Original and Special Collections Cataloging at the University of Maryland
In 2018, the RDA Steering Committee will roll out a significantly updated version of the RDA Toolkit, which will incorporate new elements from the IFLA Library Reference Model (IFLA LRM), restructure the instructions contained in the RDA Toolkit, and implement the four-fold path (four different ways of capturing data) throughout. RDA Steering Committee member Kathy Glennan will provide the context for these changes and will explain how they will impact catalogers.
