Preparing for a Resource Description and Access (RDA) and a transitioning cataloging environment

Last updated February 10, 2013

This page started as a quick resource page for myself and anyone who wanted to stay informed of the development of Resource Description and Access (RDA) as it moved toward publication in 2010. Since then it has morphed to include a broader array of resources revolving around RDA and the transitioning environment of cataloging, metadata, including the increasing interest in linked data and the like. LC intends to implement RDA in March 2013 and this year announced plans to transition MARC21 (i.e., most likely they will replace it). This page is not intended to be a complete list of resources, and it is subject to change. Corrections and suggestions for additions are welcome.
