IFLA Satellite Meeting: RDA in the Wider World
A day-long event of presentations and workshops to explore various RDA issues; hosted at OCLC's Dublin, Ohio campus.
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, hosted by OCLC, 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?
Note: The Call for Papers closed 29 February 2016.
Chartered bus transportation will be available for this event from selected Columbus downtown hotels and Dublin hotels to OCLC with a return trip after the event ends. For information on the schedule of these shuttles, see this bus schedule ».
