RDA @ Your Library will provide both basic and advanced information on Resource Description and Access (RDA), covering a variety of topics including an RDA background/overview (FRBR and FRAD concepts), RDA training, RDA as Data (including a background on the concept of changes needed to library metadata), and why RDA might not be the right choice for libraries. Additionally, various Integrated Library Systems vendors will present on their intentions towards RDA. ALA Publishing will present on AACR2 to RDA from the co-publishers perspective. An OCLC representative will discuss the OCLC plans regarding RDA.

Resource Description and Access (RDA) was released June 23, 2010. It was designed to replace the existing Anglo-American Cataloging Rules, 2nd Edition (AACR2). Prior to implementation, the USA National Libraries (Library of Congress, National Library of Medicine, and the National Agriculture Library) determined to test RDA to assure the operational, technical, and economic feasibility of RDA. See more on the testing process and partnerships on the Library of Congress website
