RDA: June 2010

So June is the big date…..(maybe?) according the the RDA-L listserv.

RDA: Resource Description and Access will be published in June 2010.  While we regret this delay in release of RDA, the transition from publication of AACR2 as a printed manual to release of RDA as a web based toolkit is a complex process with many interdependencies.

The updated text of RDA incorporates recommendations from constituencies and other stakeholders approved at the JSC meeting earlier this year.  The revised text has been successfully loaded into the RDA database.  The product is currently undergoing thorough quality review and testing in preparation for release.

We recognize that customers and prospective users of RDA need reliable and timely information for planning and budgeting.  We are confident that this revised deadline is a realistic target for publication of RDA.

Pricing and purchasing information will be introduced at the time of the ALA Midwinter Meeting, 15-18 January 2010.

  2. Really well-written article, thank you for writing about this. You have a lot of really good information on this site, thanks again! I found a brief primer on Software Testing, do you think it is any good? I’m curious about such introductory articles for someone who is thinking about getting into Testing. Visit my site if you’d like to read more.
