RDA, RDA…What the heck is RDA?!!

Everyone is talking about it, but what is it?

RDA is the new cataloguing paradigm, which replaces the old rules – AACRII.

In a nutshell, RDA give us more scope to catalogue the ephemeral and the digitial. Let’s face it, more and more of what we have in our collections is not a physical items. It’s more likely to be a link, a digital document, image or PDF, an eBook or audiobook.

Renate Beilharz has all the knowledge, and you can see what RDA and FRBR are all about in her article on the BRIGHT IDEAS blog.
