RDA discussion paper and agenda for January 2021 meeting

  • 1.  RDA discussion paper and agenda for January 2021 meeting

    Posted Dec 21, 2020 02:21 PM

    Dear CORE Metadata Interest Group members,

    The agenda for the 11-14 January RDA Steering Committee (RSC) Asynchronous Meeting has been posted to the RSC website. Also posted is a briefing paper on Pseudo-elements which will be discussed at that meeting.  "Pseudo-elements" comprise certain RDA elements pertaining to religious, legal, music, and official communications, and the paper proposes moving these pseudo-elements out of base RDA-Toolkit text into the Community resources area. 

    The public session of the January meeting will consist of a discussion of the pseudo-elements paper, and of an RDA application profile developed by DACH, the association of libraries from Germany, Austria, and Switzerland.  All are welcome to attend the public session; I'll forward registration information to the MIG community once it is made available.  If you are unable to attend the public session, feel free to forward me your comments and I will convey them to the  North America representative of the RSC.
