For the uninitiated, RDA (Resource Description and Access) are the
proposed new cataloging rules which tentatively will replace the current
AACR2, rev. cataloging rules now in place. The new rules will be in the
testing mode next year by select libraries, and all of us catalogers wait
with “bated breath” to see if these new rules will fly or not. If they do,
it will signal a major change to how (but never why!) we catalog. This is a slide show from the AUTOCAT listserv explaining RDA.
For those who are not catalogers (but always secretly wanted to be) you might find the slide show interesting as well.
