Poster Board Number: 119
Title: Rethinking Access with Resource Description and Access (RDA)
Objective: To present some of the features, changes, and benefits that resource description and access (RDA) will bring to the cataloging community and end users. RDA will incorporate the conceptual models of functional requirements for bibliographic records (FRBR) and functional requirements for authority data (FRAD) to enhance the user experience. RDA will be the new standard for describing resources in the digital environment by providing guidelines and instructions for description and access for resources covering all types of content and media. Moreover, it will be used by libraries, museums, publishers, and others.
Methods: This poster will selectively highlight some of the features, changes, and benefits of RDA. The investigators will consult RDA, FRBR, FRAD, and the literature that is readily available to selectively highlight some of the changes and benefits of these tools when fully implemented.
Results and Conclusions: My results and conclusions are not complete yet.
Authors: Michael A. Wood, WCMC-Qatar Liaison Librarian, Weill Cornell Medical Library, Weill Cornell Medical College of Cornell University, New York, NY; Chamya P. Kincy, Life and Social Sciences Cataloger, UCLA Library, University of California, Los Angeles, CA
