RDA Worldwide

an ALCTS Program

Sunday, June 24, 2012 | 1:30-3:30 PM

Content area: Transforming: E-Books and Collections

Resource Description and Access (RDA), the new guidelines for library cataloging and metadata creation, is intended for use in an international context. RDA is also very much a work in progress. To what extent has RDA succeeded in going beyond AACR2's Anglo-American context? How is implementation now proceeding in different world regions, and what are the potential impacts on developments in the United States? This panel discussion will present multiple perspectives on these unfolding questions.
