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. 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 implemented RDA in March 2013 and also announced plans to investigate transitioning MARC21 resulting in the development of BIBFRAME. 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.
In 2013 I had the pleasure of editing a special issue of Journal of Library Metadata entitled the "Functional Future of Bibliographic Control : transitioning into new communities of practice and awareness" (volume 12, issue 2-3, September 2012). Those interested can read my Introduction to the issue here. This issue was also published as a book by Routledge, 2014. ISBN 978-0-415-71602-4. (Please note, the book title is slightly different: "Functional Future for Bibliographic Control").
