  • Since one hour is a very short time to cover all the important things about RDA, I will touch on the highlights, and I will be referring to resources that I have found helpful. Since RDA is still very much in flux, one of the best things you can do to prepare is to be aware of resources and keep reading up on it.
  • International Standard for Bibliographic Description
  • E-R models define entities, list their attributes, and identify relationships between entities
  • The FRBR user tasks are: to find entities that correspond to the user's search criteria , to identify an entity (i.e., to confirm that the entity described corresponds to the entity sought, or to distinguish between two or more entities with similar characteristics) , to select an entity that is appropriate to the user's needs (i.e., to choose an entity that meets the user's requirements with respect to content, physical format, etc....), and to acquire or obtain access to the entity described (i.e. to acquire an entity through purchase, loan, etc., or to access an entity electronically...)
  • 11
  • The user tasks in FRAD are: find entities corresponding to stated criteria, identify an entity as being the one sought (or validate the form of name to be used for a controlled access point), contextualize (or place a person, corporate body, etc., in context – clarify the relationship between two or more of them), and justify the authority data creator’s reason for choosing the name or form of name on which an access point is based. The draft of RDA uses clarify and understand instead of contextualize and justify, but I believe this will be changed when the final version is released.
  • Both rules are divided into description and access – in RDA, recording attributes is description, and recording relationships is access.
  • RDA will also have several appendices that deal with things like capitalization, abbreviations, and an appendix of examples.
  • RDA does not specify how this data should be recorded; for now, we will document this information in authority records.
  • A phrase you will hear a lot is “RDA element set”, which is a list of all the RDA elements - like a dictionary or glossary for RDA elements.
  • The categorization of resources is one area where there are actually new elements, not just new terminology.
  • Some terms refer to content type
  • Some terms refer to carrier type
  • Some terms refer to media type
  • Generally, RDA is much more focused on transcribing things as they appear on the source. “Take what you see” is kind of the rule of thumb.
  • For inaccuracies, the correct form is provided either in a note or in a variant access point if considered to be important for access.
  • Tom Delsey is an information modeling consultant who was the editor of RDA during its development from 2005-2009
  • If you really want to get a handle on specific changes, I would greatly recommend looking at this presentation. There are other things that I haven’t even touched on here – publication area, etc.
  • Included in MARC updates 10 and 11, they are in red if you go to the LOC MARC documentation
  • New code used in the leader in character position 18. Subfield e is used for description conventions
  • There are different categories of carrier terms – audio, computer, microform, microscopic, projected image, stereographic, unmediated, video, and unspecified.
  • “The 046 and 3XX fields contain additional information about characteristics of the heading entities in fields 100-185.”
  • The RDA draft is available in PDF formats (this was made available in 2008). I did not mention this earlier.
  • RDA in MARC is another LOC resource that I don’t think I mentioned earlier.
  • I will be sending out a link to an evaluation form.

    6. 6. Why a new cataloging code? • RDA is: – Designed for describing all types of resources – Designed to be more flexible in an international setting – Designed to make it easier for library data to interact with other bibliographic data
    7. 7. Basics of FRBR Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records • Conceptual model developed by the International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions (IFLA) • Entity-relationship model • Based on user tasks
    8. 8. Basics of FRBR User Tasks • Find • Identify • Select • Obtain
    9. 9. Basics of FRBR Entities • Group 1 – Entities that are products of intellectual or artistic endeavor – Work, Expression, Manifestation, Item • Group 2 – Entities responsible for intellectual or artistic endeavor – Person, Corporate Body, Family • Group 3 – Entities that are subjects of intellectual or artistic endeavor – Concept, Object, Event, Place
    10. 10. Basics of FRBR Relationships FRBR is based on relationships between entities, both those in different groups and those in the same groups
