Introduction to
RDA
12 May 2014
What we’ll cover today
• Little bit of theory – FRBR and history
• Differences between AACR2 and RDA
• Access point changes
• Relationships
• New MARC fields
• RDA Toolkit
• SLQ experience
• Q&A
What is RDA
•
•
•
•
RDA = Resource Description and Access
Replaces Anglo American Cataloguing Rules - AACR2
Informed by FRBR and FRAD
New standard designed for the digital environment not AACR3
• Usable outside the library community
• Online product - accessed through RDA Toolkit
RDA – a ‘Content’ standard
• Describes ‘what’ to record, not ‘how’
• Independent of encoding schemas
• Adaptable and sharable in a digital world
RDA - a new way of thinking
• Application of FRBR/FRAD
• Format neutral
• More cataloguer’s judgement
Purpose of RDA
• The focus of RDA is the user
– Each section is explicitly related to user tasks
– Fewer abbreviations and omissions
– No limitations on the number of access points
History
• 1978 – AACR2
• 1997 – International Conference on the Principles and
Future Development of AACR
• 2004 – proposal for AACR3
– AACR3 : Resource description and access
• 2005 – RDA began
• 2010 – RDA published
Why do we need to change

Web 1.0
Web 2.0
The Semantic Web
Linked data
RDA and FRBR
What RDA does:
• Includes FRBR terminology where appropriate
• Uses the FRBR attributes as the basis for specific data
elements to be included in bibliographic descriptions
• Addresses FRBR relationships
• Uses the FRBR user tasks as the basis for defining a
set of mandatory data elements.
What RDA is not
• RDA is not
–
–
–
–
–
An encoding scheme
A display or presentation standard
A rigid set of rules
Structured around ISBD areas and elements
Confined to a library environment
FRBR vs RDA vs MARC
• FRBR is a conceptual model
• RDA is a cataloguing standard based on the FRBR
conceptual model
• MARC is an encoding scheme by which computers
exchange, use and interpret bibliographic information
– Developed alongside AACR
– RDA is not dependent on MARC
FRBR
FRBR = Functional Requirements for Bibliographic
Records
• A conceptual model (of the bibliographic universe) that
underlies RDA
• An entity-relationship model
• Identifies specific user tasks that bibliographic records are
intended to fulfil:
Find – Identify – Select – Obtain
FRBR
• FRBR focuses on three aspects:
– entities, attributes, relationships
• An entity is a ‘being’ or ‘thing with a distinct existence’
• An attribute is a quality, something that characterises or
describes the entity
• A relationship is the link between different entities
FRBR
The key ‘things’ of interest to the user
• 3 groups
– Group 1 entities (Resources)
• Work, Expression, Manifestation, Item
– Group 2 entities (Agents)
• People, families, corporate bodies
– Group 3 entities (Subjects)
• Concepts, objects, events, plus Group 1 & 2 entities
FRBR entities – Group 1
• Group 1 - Products of intellectual and artistic endeavour
– Work is a “distinct intellectual or artistic creation”
– Expression is the “specified intellectual or artistic form
that a work takes each time it is ‘realised’”
– Manifestation is “the physical embodiment of an
expression of a work”
– Item – is “a single exemplar of a manifestation”
WEMI = Works, Expressions, Manifestations,
Items
What is FRBR? : a conceptual model for the bibliographic universe / Barbara Tillett
FRBR entities – Group 2
• Group 2 – Those responsible for Group 1 (the
intellectual and artistic content)
– Person
– Corporate body
– Family
FRBR entities – Group 3
• Group 3 – Subjects of works
–
–
–
–
Concept
Object
Event
Place
• Plus
– Groups 1 and 2 entities
Relationships
• A work may be realized through one or more than one
expression
An expression is the realization of one and only one work
•
An expression may be embodied in one or more than one
manifestation
A manifestation may embody one or more than one
expression.
• A manifestation may be exemplified by one or more than one
item
An item may exemplify one and only one manifestation.

Equivalent Relationships
• Most commonly exist between the manifestations of an
expression of a work
•
Alternate
― Simultaneously released edition
― Alternate format
• Reproduction
― Reprint
― Mirror site
― Facsimile
Derivative Relationships
• Work-to-Work or Expression-to-Expression
• Different Expressions of the same Work
― Revision
― Literal translation
― Musical arrangement
― Dubbed or subtitled version of a film
― Illustrated edition
• A new Work based on another Work
― Adaptation for children
― Parody
― Free translation
― Screenplay
Descriptive Relationships
• A new Work that describes one or more existing Works,
Expressions, Manifestations or Items

New MARC fields
Differences between AACR2 and RDA
What’s the same
• Instructions in AACR2 formed the basis of text for RDA
– Many instructions have not changed (or not changed much)
• Includes options and alternatives (more options in RDA)
• Includes Library of Congress interpretations
– Now called LC-PCC PS – Library of Congress-Program for Cooperative
Cataloguing Policy Statements
• Can still code records in MARC
– Records will still look much the same – more information

Example from RDA
2.0 - Purpose and Scope
This chapter provides general guidelines and
instructions on recording the attributes of
manifestations and items that are most often
used to identify a resource. …
…The user generally relies on these same
elements:
a) to determine whether the resource
described is the one sought
b) to distinguish between resources with
similar identifying information.
FRBR/FRAD framework
RDA Section
1 – Recording attributes of manifestations and items
What’s in it
Manifestations

Title of manifestation, publisher, date of publication, edition, series
Items

Annotations, access, ownership
2 - Recording Attributes of Work & Expression
Works

Authorised access points (uniform titles)

Title of the work (note this is different to recording the title of a manifestation) and additions to preferred titles
Expressions

Form of notation, content type, illustrations
3 - Recording Attributes of Person, Family, & Corporate Body


4 - Recording Attributes of Concept, Object, Event & Place

Data elements that are recorded in subject authority records – Not yet written

Relationships between work, expression, manifestation and item by using identifiers, authorised access points and
composite descriptions

Corporate Bodies
7 - Recording Relationships to Concepts, Objects, Events, &
Places
8 - Recording Relationships between Works, Expressions,
Manifestations, & Items

Corporate Bodies
10 - Recording Relationships between Concepts, Objects,
Events, & Places
Core elements vs Levels of Description
AACR2 - levels of
description
Eg First level
– title proper
– first statement of responsibility
– edition statement
– material specific details
– first publisher, etc.
– date of publication, etc.
– extent of item
– notes
– standard number

Principles of RDA
• Transcribe what you see
• Accept what you get
– Fewer abbreviations, more words
– Misspellings are transcribed as written, then explained in a
note or an alternate title (246 field)
(There is an exception for misspellings in a serial title)
• Also, there is the concept of “Core” and “Core if”
Transcribing data
• Descriptions match the way the entity describes itself
• Discourages

Access point changes
Access point changes
• What’s an access point in RDA?
– Authorised access point
• UF - Main entry (AACR2)
– Access point
• UF - Added entry (AACR2)
– Subject access point
• UF - Subject heading (AACR2)
Scope of “person”
• RDA 8.1.2
– “An individual or an identity established by an
individual (either alone or in collaboration with one
or more other individuals)”
• RDA 9.0

• Establish all entities associated with a person
• Include in name element (ie MARC 1XX $a)
– Terms of relationships Eg. Sr, Jr.
– Terms of address Eg. Dr, Mr, Mrs
(only used in certain circumstances)
Preferred name for persons

Changes to dates for persons
• Abbreviations “cent.,” “ca.,” “b.,” “d.,” and “fl.” not in
appendix B
– “cent.” becomes “century”
• Joannes, Diaconus, 12th century
– “approximately” replaces “ca.”
• Smith, John, approximately 1837-1896
Changes to dates for persons
– “b.” and “d.” dates becomes “born” and “died”
• LC Policy - use hyphens instead of spelling out the
abbreviations
– 100 1_ $a Macready, William, $d -1829.
or,
– 100 1_ $a Macready, William, $d died 1829.
– “fl.” becomes “flourished”
• LC Policy - use “active” for “fl.”
– 100 1_ $a Johnson, Carl F., $d flourished 1893-1940.

– Also possible for general library materials:
genealogy newsletters, family reunion
publications, etc.
Families as creators - examples

festivals) and vessels (e.g., ships & spacecraft)
Preferred name of corporate body
•
•
•
•
Mostly the same as AACR2
More detail
Lots of examples
Changes to conferences

Preferred name of corporate body
A few things to note:
• Not abbreviating “Department”
– (Appendix B.2)
• Language used – removal of English bias
– (RDA 11.2.2.5.2)
• Include frequency in conference name, and
• Omit year of convocation (include in $d)
– (RDA 11.2.2.11)
• Variant spellings: choose the form found in the first resource
received
