    Dear ALCTS Metadata Interest Group members,

    The deadline for comments on the two RDA Steering Committee (RSC) documents has been extended until November 27.  Please forward me any comments on these documents you might like to share with the RSC by Nov. 26.

    These documents concern 1) a redefinition of the RDA expression-level content elements a) supplementary content, b) accessibility content, c) color content, d) illustrative content, and e) sound content ; and 2) the treatment of excerpts in RDA.  In the case of the content elements, this may be of particular interest to metadata practitioners working with visual materials, sound and moving image collections, and music collections.  The excerpts document, among other things, defines excerpts as distinct types of expressions different from "parts"--the examples used by the paper's author are all based on traditional text sources (e.g. Shakespeare and Jane Austen), so if you work with materials other than traditional printed books this may be of interest to you.
