Implementation of the LRM in RDA
#RDA #CATALOGING #LRM #LIBRARIANSHIPSTUDIES

The RDA Steering Committee (RSC) agreed at its November 2016 meeting to adopt the draft IFLA Library Reference Model (LRM) as a conceptual model for the development of RDA: Resource Description and Access, replacing the Functional Requirements family of models (FRBR, FRAD, and FRSAD) that are superseded by the LRM.

Although the LRM is not yet approved and published by IFLA, the RSC wishes to be proactive at this stage because the final draft submitted for approval is not expected to undergo significant changes. The RSC will continue to monitor the LRM through its protocol with the FRBR Review Group.

The RDA Toolkit Restructure and Redesign (3R) Project will aim for compatibility between the current RDA entities and elements and the LRM, and will use the LRM to guide the development of RDA Toolkit for international, cultural heritage, and linked data communities.

The first significant impacts of the LRM will appear in the April 2018 release of RDA Toolkit.

This announcement gives an initial indication of what those impacts will be. Except where specifically noted, the RSC does not expect current interpretation and application of RDA to be changed. Instead, additional methods for creating and maintaining coherent RDA data will become available.

Three completely new entities will be added to RDA: Collective Agent, Nomen, and Time-span. Two other entities that are already implicit in RDA, Agent and Place, will be added and consolidated... ...

The Cataloging and Metadata Services Unit at Utah State University 's Merrill-Cazier Library recently set out to map out the general workflows of the unit, including where material comes in, how it is handled, and where it goes after it leaves the unit.

#LIBRARIANSHIPSTUDIES #CATALOGING

Here is the workflow specific to our general research collections. These workflows are specific to physical collections that are being cataloged in MARC for the integrated library system (ILS).

Linked Data in MarcEdit
#linkeddata #marcedit #LIBRARIANSHIPSTUDIES
An introduction to the MARC record editing software MarcEdit with reference to Linked Data in MarcEdit
