Cataloging, Classification & RDA
This session shares the thoughts of LC's Associate Librarian for Library Services, Deanna Marcum and its Director for Acquisitions & Bibliographic Access, Beacher Wiggins on LC's decision regarding RDA. Marcum gives her reactions to reviewing and accepting the recommendations of the U.S. RDA Test Coordinating Committee. Wiggins, a Coordinating Committee co-chair, describes the test, findings, and analyses that led to the recommendation to implement RDA not sooner than January 2013.
The cataloging of continuing resources has weathered the change to RDA but unresolved issues remain and new issues have surfaced. This presentation will explore continuing resources cataloging from the perspectives of ISSN, RDA, and FRBR; introduce an alternative model, PRESSoo; highlight questions raised by BIBFRAME; and examine RDF output from the ISSN records in the ISSN International Centre’s ROAD database.
