New Video: Anticipating the New RDA

The video embedded below was posted online by the Library of Congress earlier today. The event was recorded at LC on July 16, 2019.


The RDA Toolkit Restructure and Redesign Project (3R Project) was announced in 2017 to improve the usability of the Toolkit and to address a range of cataloging issues, including the implementation of the IFLA Library Reference Model (LRM). This presentation discusses some of the important updates to RDA that will be incorporated when the 3R Project is complete. There will be a brief look at new concepts introduced by the LRM, and their impact on current RDA content.

A text transcript is also available.
