OCLC RDA Policy effective March 31, 2013
OCLC is pleased to announce that a new policy statement about RDA records in WorldCat is now available as part of the RDA pages on the OCLC website. This new policy becomes effective on March 31, 2013 and grew out of a discussion paper, “Incorporating RDA Practices into WorldCat”, and the many comments received from member libraries in response to that paper. OCLC staff are grateful for those comments along with the work of a number of task groups of the Program for Cooperative Cataloging, whose discussions of RDA practices have also influenced this policy statement. RDA (Resource Description and Access) is the new cataloging standard that will replace AACR2.
