Call for comments: RDA proposal on work group elements

  • 1.  Call for comments: RDA proposal on work group elements

    Posted Mar 08, 2024 08:24 AM

    Dear colleagues,

    Another RDA revision proposal has come down to pike: RSC/TechnicalWG/2024/1 

    This proposal seeks to clean up element hierarchies for appellations of a work groups, which were introduced to RDA during the 3R project.  In particular, there are some inconsistencies in inverse elements in the Work and Nomen domains relating to appellations of work groups which the paper seeks to correct. 

    Please send me your comments by 13 March and I will forward them to CC:DA and NARDAC for review ahead of a vote to approve this proposal.
