“A new standard for resource description & access, designed for the digital world”—Joint Steering Committee for Development of RDA (JSC)-- http://www.collectionscanada.gc.ca/jsc/rda.html


The JSC plans for the new guidelines to be adaptable for use with any database structure, not just MARC21, using XML or its offshoots, Dublin Core, or a future format not yet even invented.


Rda will be an online resource
RDA will be an online resource with any database structure, not just MARC21, using XML or its offshoots, Dublin Core, or a future format not yet even invented.

Hyperlinks will take users from place to place within the chapters.

Example:

6.17.3.0.2 For other types of musical expressions, construct the preferred access point following the instructions given under

6.1.3.


Final draft is due in early 2009, but LC may not implement until late in the year. LC training organizations are planning to offer training to RDA users.


Mappings to various encoding presentation schemes
Mappings to various encoding & presentation schemes until late in the year. LC training organizations are planning to offer training to RDA users.

RDA will provide mappings for use with

  • MARC21,

  • ISBD, &

  • DC (Dublin Core)


The rules are based on and aligned with
The rules are based on and aligned with until late in the year. LC training organizations are planning to offer training to RDA users.

  • Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records (FRBR)

    and

  • the still-developing Functional Requirements for Authority Data (FRAD)


Each rda chapter will directly relate to a frbr user task find identify select obtain
Each until late in the year. LC training organizations are planning to offer training to RDA users.RDA chapter will directly relate to a FRBR user task: Find Identify Select Obtain


So what is frbr anyway
So what is FRBR, anyway? until late in the year. LC training organizations are planning to offer training to RDA users.

  • a model for bibliographic description developed by the IFLA in the 1990’s.

  • includes a conceptual model of entities and relationships and attributes

  • identifies specific user tasks that bibliographic records are intended to fulfill: find, identify, select, obtain;

  • And, recommends a set of elements for inclusion in national bibliographic records.


How will rda use frbr
How will RDA use FRBR? until late in the year. LC training organizations are planning to offer training to RDA users.

  • RDA will include lots of FRBR terminology (for example, use of the names of bibliographic entities: “work”, “expression”, “manifestation”, and “item”).

  • RDA will use the FRBR attributes as the basis for specific data elements in bibliographic descriptions (person, family, corporate body, concept, object, event or a place).

  • It will address relationships between attributes, and will use the FRBR user tasks (Find, Identify, Select, Obtain) as the basis for defining a set of mandatory data elements.


So what s a work hamlet is a work as shakespeare first imagined it in his head
So, what’s a until late in the year. LC training organizations are planning to offer training to RDA users.work?“Hamlet” is a work, as Shakespeare first imagined it in his head.


What s an expression the play as shakespeare first wrote it is his expression of his original idea
What’s an until late in the year. LC training organizations are planning to offer training to RDA users.expression? The play as Shakespeare first wrote it is his expression of his original idea.


A manifestation the 1605 edition of the play printed in london
A until late in the year. LC training organizations are planning to offer training to RDA users.manifestation, the 1605 edition of the play, printed in London:



A copy of that 1605 edition is an item
A copy of that 1605 edition is an item. that 1605 text of the play


Or another way of looking at it
Or, another way of looking at it? that 1605 text of the play

  • Work is a title

  • Expression is a format

  • Manifestation is an edition

  • Item is a copy


So what s an attribute
So, what’s an that 1605 text of the playattribute?

  • An element associated with an entity (work, expression, manifestation, item, etc

  • Works, manifestations, expressions, & items all have attributes and relationships between them. And so do persons, families, corporate bodies, concepts, objects, events, & places.

  • For instance, an attribute of William Shakespeare might be his birth and death dates, 1564-1616.


Here s some more new rda terminology
Here’s some more new RDA terminology that 1605 text of the play


What else could change terminology for
What else could change? that 1605 text of the playTerminology for

  • Media, Carrier, and Content Types to replace GMDs

  • File characteristics for digital materials

  • Video format characteristics

  • Custodial information for archival resources

  • Braille characteristics


Rda will be divided in sections
RDA will be divided in sections that 1605 text of the play

  • Sections 1-4 will give guidelines for recording attributes.

  • Sections 5-10 will give guidelines for recording the relationships between and among the attributes.

  • Each section will have one or more chapters.

  • The guidelines will designate which descriptive elements are required and which are optional.

  • For a list of required elements, see http://www.collectionscanada.gc.ca/jsc/docs/rdafaq-requelements-20080103.pdf


Sections 1 4 will cover attributes
Sections 1-4 will cover attributes. that 1605 text of the play


Sections 5 10 will cover the relationships among the various attributes
Sections that 1605 text of the play5-10 will cover the relationships among the various attributes.


The new rules are NOT intended to be used with any SPECIFIC record structure, such as MARC21. They will flexible enough for bibliographic description in libraries, archives, museums, databases, etc.


We can fit rda into marc21
We can fit RDA into MARC21 record structure, such as MARC21.

  • Our existing MARC21 records will not have to be modified either.

  • Our old records and new RDA records will sit side by side in the same catalogs.

  • There may be some changes to the MARC21 codes for GMD’s and SMD’s, and for electronic resources, but those aren’t out yet.


An RDA/MARC Working Group record structure, such as MARC21. will propose any needed changes in MARC21 to accommodate the encoding of RDA records.


A new cataloging standard will
A new cataloging standard will record structure, such as MARC21.

  • Encourage use as a content standard for metadata schema

  • Encourage international applicability, for a much more global, non-English specific standard


A task group is developing
A Task Group is developing record structure, such as MARC21.

  • A defined RDA Element analysis in Dublin Core, and

  • RDA Value Vocabularies for use in the Semantic Web, using RDF/RDFS/SKOS technologies,

  • Thus making RDA a very Web-compatible standard

  • The DC vocabulary is already available at: http://www.collectionscanada.gc.ca/jsc/docs/5rda-elementanalysisrev.pdf


What will rda include
What will RDA include? record structure, such as MARC21.

Guidelines to govern resource description

Example:

5.3.1. When recording data identifying a work or expression, include as a minimum the elements listed below that are applicable to that work or expression.

Title

Preferred title for the work

Identifier

Identifier for the work

Identifier for the expression


Guidelines to govern choice form of access points
Guidelines to govern record structure, such as MARC21. choice & form of access points

Example:

6.1.1.1.1. If one person, family, or corporate body is responsible for creating the work, construct the preferred access point representing the work by combining (in this order):

a) the preferred access point for that person, family, or

corporate body, formulated according to the guidelines and

instructions given under 9.1.1, 10.1.1, or 11.1.1, as

applicable

b) the preferred title for the work, formulated according to the

instructions given under 6.2.


It will include guidelines for references
It will include guidelines for references record structure, such as MARC21.

9.3.1.3.1. If the preferred name or names for an individual are pseudonyms, and he or she does not use his or her real name as a creator or contributor, record the individual’s real name, if known, as a variant name.

  • Cross, Marian Evans

  • (Pseudonym recorded as preferred name: Eliot, George)

  • Dudevant, Amandine-Aurore-Lucile

  • (Pseudonym recorded as preferred name: Sand, George)

  • Munro, Hector Hugh

  • (Pseudonym recorded as preferred name: Saki)

  • Jackson, Curtis


And guidelines for relationships
And guidelines for relationships record structure, such as MARC21.

29.3.1. When recording relationships between persons, families, and corporate bodies, include as a minimum the elements listed below that are applicable to the related person, family, or corporate body.

  • Name

  • Preferred name for the [person, family, or corporate body]

  • Identifier

  • Identifier for the [person, family, or corporate body]


There will be plenty of examples
There will be plenty of examples-- record structure, such as MARC21.

  • Hemingway, Ernest, 1899-1961. Sun also rises

  • Cassatt, Mary, 1844-1926. Children playing on the

  • beach

  • Barner (Family). Barner family newsletter

    (Originally published anonymously but known to be by Jonathan Swift)


What will rda not include
What will RDA not include? record structure, such as MARC21.

  • Instructions for creating classification or cutter numbers

  • Instructions for use of such data structures as MARC21, or

  • Information about mark-up languages such as XML and its offshoots.

  • RDA will include guidelines for creating subject headings, in Section 10 and Chpt. 23, but they won’t be part of the first rollout.


Each section s chapters will be associated with specific frbr user tasks
Each record structure, such as MARC21. section’s chapters will be associated with specific FRBR user tasks.

This will

  • help catalogers think in terms of enabling users to succeed at the FRBR user tasks, and

  • Help system designers create new resource discovery tools that will house these FRBR-based records.


Rda planned appendices
RDA Planned Appendices record structure, such as MARC21.

Appendix A. Capitalization

Appendix B. Abbreviations

Appendix C. Initial articles

Appendix D. Record syntaxes for descriptive data
