rda objectives
RDA Objectives
  • Responsiveness to user needs
  • Cost efficiency
  • Flexibility
  • Continuity
objectives responsiveness to user needs
Objectives: Responsiveness to User Needs
  • Identify the resource described (i.e., to confirm that the resource described corresponds to the resource sought, or to distinguish between two or more resources);
  • Select a resource that is appropriate to the user’s requirements with respect to content, format, etc.
objectives cost efficiency
Objectives: Cost Efficiency
  • Descriptive data should meet the functional requirements in a cost-effective manner
objectives flexibility
Objectives: Flexibility
  • Descriptive data should function independently of the format, medium, or system used to store or communicate the data
  • Descriptive data should be amenable to use in a variety of environments
objectives continuity
Objectives: Continuity
  • Descriptive data should be amenable to integration into existing files with a minimum of retrospective adjustment to those files
rda principles
RDA Principles
  • Differentiation
  • Sufficiency
  • Relationships
  • Representation
  • Accuracy
  • Common usage
  • Uniformity
principles differentiation
Principles: Differentiation
  • Descriptive data provided should serve to differentiate the resource described from other resources represented in the file
principles sufficiency
Principles: Sufficiency
  • Descriptive data should be sufficient to meet the needs of the user with respect to selection of an appropriate resource
principles relationships
Principles: Relationships
  • Descriptive data should indicate significant bibliographic relationships between the resource described and other resources
principles representation
Principles: Representation
  • Descriptive data should reflect the resource’s representation of itself
principles accuracy
Principles: Accuracy
  • Descriptive data should furnish supplementary information to correct or clarify ambiguous, unintelligible, or misleading representations made by the resource itself
principles common usage
Principles: Common Usage
  • The guidelines and instructions for recording data elements other than those transcribed from the resource itself should reflect common usage
principles uniformity
Principles: Uniformity
  • Guidelines and instructions provided in the appendices on capitalization, numerals, abbreviations, order of elements, punctuation, etc. should serve to promote uniformity in the presentation of descriptive data
