Integration of user-generated content with library catalogs is a remarkable point with the developments in web technologies and semantic networks. In the light of these developments, library catalogs are linked with open data resources like VIAF, DBpedia and amazon.com with the aim of bibliographic description via URI based structures. On the other hand “Resource Description and Access” (RDA), as a new cataloging standard, supports libraries for their bibliographic description studies by increasing access points. Furthermore, many initiatives have been launched by countries who would like to keep themselves up-to-date by using and implementing RDA in their library catalogs. In this context, developing catalogers’ opinions and perceptions regarding of RDA implementations is of great importance. In this study, it is aimed to reveal the requirements, awareness and perceptions of catalogers in academic libraries in Turkey about RDA implementations.
