RDA: background and context

background and context of RDA, including international activities happening
in parallel at the IFLA Meeting of Experts on an International Cataloguing
Code and ISBD Review Group.

Changing direction:  from AACR to RDA

Jennifer Bowen, Head of Cataloging, University of Rochester Libraries and
ALA representative on the JSC, discusses the process of review for the
draft of AACR3 Part 1 and how we moved from AACR3 to RDA and the process
going forward.

Looking under the hood and kicking the tires: some premature comments on
RDA from an ALA perspective

John Attig, Authority Control Librarian at Penn State University and member
of the Committee on Cataloging: Description and Access (CC:DA), will
describe some of the features that are expected to be included in the new
rules and will offer a summary of some issues that CC:DA members will be
keeping their eyes on as the code develops.
