Abstract

Resource Description and Access (RDA) is a new standard for description and access, designed for the digital world. The paper charts the drivers that are shaping RDA's development. It explains why simply revising AACR2 is no longer an option. It discusses the relationship between RDA and other international standards developments, such as IFLA's draft statement of International Cataloguing Principles; the influence of models such as FRBR (Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records) and FRAR (Functional Requirements for Authority records). The timeline for the publication of RDA is outlined, and information given on how you can influence the development of RDA.
