For those of you in the Chicago area, the RDA Steering Committee (RSC) is inviting catalogers and metadata librarians to a special one-day event “Reconstructing RDA in the LRM: Aggregations, Authorities, and Appellations” on Tuesday, May 16. Visit http://www.rda-rsc.org/SpecialRDAevent for details, which the RSC expects to release soon.
“The impact of the IFLA LRM (Library Resource Model) and the ‘4-fold path’ on RDA will be discussed. In addition, latest news will be shared about the 3R Project (RDA Toolkit Restructure and Redesign Project) and NARDAC (North American RDA Community), the organization being developed as part of the new RDA governance structure.” Additionally, the RSC will be seeking input from catalogers about “(1) the treatment of aggregates, and (2) authority control in the world of linked data.”
