IFLA World Library and Information Congress
82nd IFLA General Conference and Assembly
Resource Description and Access (RDA), the replacement for AACR, has been the standard in many institutions for several years now. The intention is for RDA to serve widely as an international descriptive standard.
This day-long event will include presentations by invited and self-nominated speakers as well as small workshops on specific topics.
Among the issues to be addressed by presenters at this event are:
- What impact does this international vision have on the governance structure of RDA?
- How has RDA been received outside Anglophone communities?
- FRBR- Library Reference Model and RDA
- How does RDA reach out to other communities?
- How does RDA treat specific areas such as serials and continuing resources, music, and audiovisual materials?
